Frozen 2 is getting underway sooner than we think. Kristen Bell, who voices Princess Anna, says she’s expecting to return to record for the highly anticipated sequel later this month. 

The actress told Collider during a recent interview that the cast is “just about to” start recording. “They’ve just written it and they’re still doing tweaks, but I think we should be recording this month. The story is great, and they exude quality. What I know about that whole team is that they wouldn’t just put something out to put it out. That’s why it took them so long to even announce that we were doing a second one.” 

Bell says they haven’t recorded any music for the sequel, either, but the music for Disney park events have kept her busy.

“We record all the time for different parks or different parks that open overseas, we’ll do a mashup for the rides,” she continued. “So we actually get to go in — Josh [Gad] and Idina [Menzel], Jonathan [Groff] and I — all the time and record new bits of the music. When Epcot center opens we’ll record a bunch of new music. So we have little bits of Frozen in our life at all times, but I’m excited to get started on the new movie.”

Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee returned for a Disney short called Frozen Fever and they return again for Frozen 2. Disney CEO Bob Iger said during a shareholders meeting last year that the duo “have come up with a great idea for a sequel, and you will be hearing a lot more about it. And we’re taking you back to Arendelle. We are so excited about that.”
