Yay! Frozen 2 has a release date… and so does the live-action Lion King

April 25th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Yes! In a bold new movie, Disney have announced the release date for a movie based on wine of their biggest movies that’s NOT a live-action remake!

In among the Jungle Books, Beauty and The Beasts, Aladdins and Mary Poppinses comes the news that Frozen 2 has a release date!

Yes, Anna, Elsa, Sven, Kristoff and the gang will be back in our cinema screens on November 27, 2019!

The announcement came from star Josh Gad and Disney itself.

This is great news because, we’re not ashamed to admit it but we loved Frozen (well, maybe not our man Crowbar) however, six years after the release of the original we would worry that the core audience may be too old by the time the new movie hits. Or maybe we’re wrong… let us know.

In related news, and talking of live-action remakes, we now have the release date for Jon Fanreau’s live-action Lion King which will roar onto screens on July 19th 2019.

So with Star Wars Episode IX in 2019 and these two, it looks like Disney will be raking in the fans’ money for the foreseeable future.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
