Disney’s ‘Frozen’ surpassed the box-office success of ‘Toy Story 3’ with 640.063 billion tops and has joined the Top 10 list of the highest-grossing movies of all time.

Disney's movie "Frozen" has taken the world by storm with its unique story and interesting twists. Its huge success left fans eager for another helping of the animation. But Disney has yet to confirm if a second movie is in the making. In fact, the company has been silent about the whole issue, and has only released non-definitive answers to the wild rumors.

In a statement given by Cinema Blend, "Frozen 2 seems inevitable. It's just not official. We reached out to Disney, who had no official comment on the state of Frozen 2. But the writing's clearly on the wall."

Around the time of the Academy Awards, at which the movie received two accolades, directors Christopher Buck and Jennifer Lee discussed the idea of a second "Frozen."

"We think the characters are very rich, [and] I think there are other stories left to tell," they told Pop Sugar.

Forbes later sees it as another issue of "artistic integrity."

"Disney foregoing another round in Arendelle is basically tantamount to passing up free money in the hundreds-of-millions. That they haven't out-and-out committed and may leave it without a sequel shows something vaguely resembling artistic integrity as a matter of company policy," the magazine wrote.

Disney CEO Bon Iger indeed recognized the huge potential of the franchise not only on the big screen but on other avenues.

"There's a lot of active development. You will see Frozen in more places than you see today. ... This has real franchise potential. We expect to see not just new product but continued interest in this and continued impact on the bottom line for quite awhile. Its success speaks volumes on the future of animation at our company," Iger said.

All conjectures about the plot of the second movie -- some have suggested Elsa finding her true love or Anna having a story of her own -- would be just pure speculation at this point.
