It’s been two years since Frozen hit theaters, but audiences still haven’t let it go. And they don’t have to. Disney announced in March that a sequel is on the way. While there still aren’t a lot of details available about what the sequel will entail, co-director of the first film Chris Buck recently spoke about one of the things audience will see in the film with Fandango.

Buck spoke about the character of Elsa, voiced by Idina Menzel in the first film, and the recent short:

[In Frozen] she had such a dramatic journey, and at the end she's just starting to feel like she can open up and have some fun again. That's what was really good about the short -- we could have fun with Elsa. And that personality... you will see in the next one.

While Anna (Kristen Bell) and her journey to find Elsa was played for laughs, the movie as a whole was more dramatic than audiences have grown used to seeing with animated fare, focusing on the bond of the sisters to save them when Elsa has trouble controlling her abilities. Based on Buck’s words, we might not see Elsa having as much difficulty controlling her powers, though it still doesn’t give audiences an idea for what the movie will entail.

Buck didn’t just talk to Fandango recently though; he also chatted with MTV about that Disney conspiracy theory that’s been making its rounds on the internet. The idea proposed by fans involved Anna and Elsa’s parents, who were lost at sea in a shipwreck, owning the ship that Ariel swims through in The Little Mermaid, but surviving the shipwreck to have their new son in a jungle somewhere, leading to Tarzan. Buck has commented on the idea in fun before, and when MTV brought it up with him again, he said, “I say, whatever people want to believe, go for it. If you want to tie them all together, then do it. That’s the spirit of Disney.” You can see his full comment here.

There’s no projected release date for the Frozen sequel yet, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
