Here are five fascinatingly different versions of famous Disney movies that almost came to pass, only to be consigned to the idea bin of history. Disney had been trying to make a version of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale ‘The Snow Queen’ since the late 1930s, but every attempt had run aground. In 2008, the project was revived again and even had some cast – ‘Will & Grace’ star Megan Mullally was onboard as Elsa (then a flat-out villain) and Josh Gad, who did eventually play snowman Olaf in the finished film.
Disney has reportedly pulled the controversial Frozen short, Olaf's Frozen Adventure, from playing at the beginning of new Pixar movie Coco in the US.

The sequel to Disney smash ‘Frozen’ is set to go into production this month, according to Kristen Bell, who’ll be reprising her role as Princess Anna. The actress and singer was promoting her new movie 'The Boss’, in which she stars with Melissa McCarthy, when she dropped the news on the project.

We’ve seen crazy and outrageous fan theories come and go regarding Disney and Pixar films, but this is perhaps the most chilling (excuse pun) for one about ‘Frozen’.

Disney isn’t letting go of Frozen any time soon. The Mouse House announced on Thursday during its annual shareholder call that it is officially in development on a sequel to the smash-hit animated film Frozen, which won Oscars for Best Animated Film and Original Song in 2014.

The Mouse House has revealed that the theaterical version of its Oscar-winning film will bring together songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (they of “Let It Go” fame) and screenwriter and co-director Jennifer Lee, who will write the book for the new show (Lopez, an EGOT winner, also wrote the scores for Book of Mormon and Avenue Q). The stage show is just one of many Frozen-focused initiatives from Disney, which is extending the life of the film with ice shows, theme park attractions, merchandise, and other tie-ins. Disney has had great success with its stage productions, especially with the live adaptation of The Lion King, which in September hit a record-breaking $6.2 billion in ticket sales.
