Disney’s ‘Frozen’ Wins Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film and It Might be Headed to Broadway

At Sunday night’s Golden Globes Disney’s animated hit Frozen walked away with the statue for Best Animated Feature Film, and the story might be making its way to the Great White Way in the not-too-distant future.

Disney’s biggest animated hit since The Lion King has grossed $669 million to date, had the biggest Disney animation debut, was nominated for two Golden Globes, might nab an Oscar nomination (or two or three), and has the number one album on iTunes and Amazon.

But wait, there’s more.

In a very recent interview with Fortune, Disney CEO and Chairman Bob Iger hinted that the story of two princess sisters – one with the power to freeze everything in sight – might very well be headed to Broadway.

Iger said that Disney is in talks to develop a show based on the hit movie (which is loosely based on the Hans Christian Andersen story of ‘The Snow Queen’), but said there is no timeline in place for development.

In the article Iger says of the possible Frozen Broadway show:  “We’re not demanding speed. We’re demanding excellence.”
