Disney's Massive Hit 'Frozen' Gets A Sequel....In Book Form....

11 August 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a rare display of thoughtful restraint, Disney has made no moves to produce a sequel to their $1.2 billion animated hit "Frozen." Back in the spring, the studio said it would focus on developing a Broadway show based on "Frozen', and just last week hired the film's writer/director Jennifer Lee to take on a different project entirely, an adaptation of the classic "A Wrinkle In Time." But the further adventures of Anna and Elsa are coming, albeit in a different medium. Random House has announced a new series of books centered on the sisters taking place in the world of "Frozen," with plans to publish three or four books per year. January 6, 2015 will see the release of "Anna & Elsa #1: All Hail the Queen" and "Anna & Elsa #2: Memory and Magic," with two more books arriving next year as well. Author Erica David, an old hand at crafting »

'Frozen' Codirector Set to Adapt 'A Wrinkle in Time' for Disney

6 August 2014 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Frozen writer and codirector Jennifer Lee has finally settled on a follow-up project to 2013’s massive hit. Lee will next adapt Madeline L’Engle’s beloved young-adult novel A Wrinkle in Time for Disney. Lee wowed Disney bosses with her take on the tale about children traveling through time and space in search of their missing father. Plans are for her to adapt the first of four books with a “strong female-driven narrative” and potentially set the stage for a new franchise for the House of Mouse. The project was originally announced in 2010, with Bridge to Terabithia scribe Jeff Stockwell handling the adaptation duties, but it appears as though Disney wasn’t thrilled with Stockwell’s take and will now hand the project over to the woman...

Frozen's Jennifer Lee adapting A Wrinkle In Time for Disney

5 August 2014 10:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The writer and co-director of Frozen has picked her next project. And it's not Frozen 2...

Disney's Frozen has just about finished now its global run at cinemas, and its final tally makes staggering reading. The film has taken in $1.273bn, making it not just the highest grossing animated film of all time (by reasonable distance), but the fifth highest grossing movie ever. Transformers: Age Of Extinction may yet knock it down to sixth, but still: that's some performance.

Co-director Jennifer Lee, who also penned the screenplay, has chosen her follow-up project to the movie, and for the time being at least, it's not the rumoured Frozen 2. Instead, it's going to see her adapting Madeleine L'Engle's book A Wrinkle In Time. She's tackling the adaptation for Disney, and the 1962 novel tells of children who travel through time to try and find their missing father, who's a scientist.

She's just on »

Frozen Director To Adapt Classic Children's Book A Wrinkle In Time

5 August 2014 6:50 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Thanks to the success of Frozen, Jennifer Lee is a young filmmaker who surely has many, many offers in front of her. The animated Disney film was her first directorial effort - sharing credit with Chris Buck - but her inexperience proved not to hamper the film in the slightest, as it went on to make $1.2 billion worldwide. So, with such a promising future ahead of her, where is Jennifer Lee going to do next? She's going to script an adaptation of another beloved, classic, fantastic story. Variety is reporting that Jennifer Lee has worked out a deal that will see her write a big-screen adaptation of Madeleine L.Engle.s beloved book A Wrinkle In Time. Disney is behind the project, and has had the property in development for a number of years. Previously, Bridge to Terabithia screenwriter Jeff Stockwell was hired to write the script, but obviously the »

‘Frozen’ Writer/Co-Director Adapting ‘A Wrinkle in Time,’ Will Posit If Snowmen Can Be Built in Outer Space

5 August 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In the sci fi subgenre of children’s time travel news, Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel “A Wrinkle in Time” is making its way to the big screen courtesy of Disney and one of their heaviest hitters of current film lore. Jennifer Lee, the first woman to co-direct an animated Disney feature — that would be 2013′s Frozen, if you want to build a snowman — is set to write the adaptation of the 1962 story, which has lived on in classrooms and the imaginations of kids who just want to casually jump around through space. A Wrinkle in Time is in good hands as Lee also wrote Frozen and 2012′s Wreck-It Ralph. Now she has to craft an adaptation of the story, which follows teenager Meg Murray and her brother Charles Wallace, along with Meg’s friend and love interest Calvin O’Keefe as they search through space and time for the Murrays’ missing father.

Disney Taps Frozen Director Jennifer Lee for A Wrinkle in Time Movie Adaptation

5 August 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Frozen scribe and co-director Jennifer Lee has chosen her next Disney motion picture project and it won't be an original tale. Per Variety, Lee has been tapped by the Mouse House to adapt the children's novel A Wrinkle in Time for the big screen.

The success of Frozen has shot Lee's stock through the roof after it was already elevated following the success of Wreck-It Ralph, which she also co-wrote. Lee is heavily involved with Disney Animation Studios, offering her input and advice on numerous projects. That responsibility will continue as she puts pen to paper and begins to draft the A Wrinkle in Time screenplay.

Madeleine L'Engle wrote A Wrinkle in Time in 1962 and it went on to earn numerous awards and kick off a series of stories starring the Murry and O'Keefe families. It follows a young girl and other children who set off on an epic time-travel »

'Frozen' director set to adapt classic novel 'A Wrinkle In Time' for Disney

5 August 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Written by Madeleine L'Engle, "A Wrinkle In Time" is an unusually beautiful science-fiction book that would most likely be categorized as "Ya" if it were published today. It tells the story of the Murry kids, an unusual family of geniuses whose father has disappeared. When three mysterious women enter their lives, 14-year-old Meg, her 10-year-old twin brothers, and 5-year-old wunderkind Charles Wallace all end up stepping through a tesseract and into a stranger world than they could have ever imagined. It is a dark story, and one of the things I find most striking about the book is the way it manages to embrace both the strong Christian faith that was very important to L'Engle as well as her fascination with quantum physics. That's not a common mixture of influences, and yet it feels like a natural fit in her work. Faith and science seem to be two halves of one thing, »
