Declaration of the Obvious

From Money:

... Frozen is on track to be the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, and is already Disney's (DIS, Fortune 500) biggest selling digital and Blu-ray release.

"This is definitely up there in terms of our top, probably, five franchises," said Disney CEO Bob Iger in a conference call last week after Disney reported a 27% surge in profits. "So you can expect us to take full advantage of that over the next at least five years." ...

Already, Elsa dresses have been selling out and people were bidding as high as $1,000 on EBay.

"The magic of the movies comes in big swings. Disney hit a grand slam with this one," said Barton Crockett who covers Disney for FBR.

And this is just the beginning. Crockett said we should expect a "Frozen" sequel in 2018.

A sequel?! Could it even be possible?!? Who could ever have imagined?

Considering Disney's next 4 movies (starting with Big Hero 6) are basically set, two more movies that are not Frozen 2 are in development, and development has not started on Frozen 2, I find it unlikely for Frozen 2 to make it in time for 2018. However I've also seen crazier things than that happen.
