The sequel to Disney’s 2013 hit musical Frozen finally has a release date: Nov. 27, 2019. This will put the Frozen sequel out in theaters more than a year after 2018’s Broadway adaptation.

The release date for Frozen 2 was announced by Disney today amidst a flurry of other release date announcements laying out the company’s calendar through 2020. The Wall Street Journal film industry reporter Ben Fritz live-tweeted the announcements, which included premiere dates for Disney’s live-action The Lion King (July 19, 2019) and the next Indiana Jones (July 10, 2020).

After grossing over a billion dollars worldwide, a Frozen sequel was inevitable, though Disney took its sweet time putting the project together. "We're not demanding speed," The Telegraph quotes Disney CEO Bob Iger as saying. "We're demanding excellence."

Unlike other Disney sequels, traditionally direct-to-video, Frozen 2 isn’t going cut-rate. We know the voices of Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) will be back. So will Josh Gad as Olaf.

Directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck are back, too.

Beyond that we don’t much. And while it’s safe to assume that “Let It Go” songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez will return to Frozen 2, there has yet to be an official announcement. Currently the songwriting duo are busy on the Frozen Broadway adaptation, expected to premiere before Frozen 2, in spring 2018.

Again, for your calendars, that release date is Nov. 27, 2019.
