With all of the buzz around Star Wars: Episode IX products launching on October 4, dubbed Triple Force Friday, some other news from Disney slipped through the cracks. On the very same day, Disney will launch a whole range of products based on Frozen 2. A wave of sets based on the film is expected as part of the LEGO Disney theme.
“With Disney’s Frozen 2 and Star Wars: Episode IX both launching in the same year, it will be a notable time for the toy industry,” says Juli Lennett, NPD Group Vice President. “If history is any indication of future success, both Frozen and Star Wars will be among the top-selling properties of 2019, just as they were in 2014 and 2015/2016, respectively.”
Frozen 2 will see directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck collaborate once again with voice actors Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad. Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez will be back to provide memorable new songs for the animated musical.
Frozen 2 will arrive in cinemas on November 22.
