Disney, in keeping with the tradition of making dreams come true, have confirmed to the New York Times that they will be bringing the hit animated film  'Frozen' to the Broadway stage.

This will be the 9th musical that Disney will bring to Broadway.

Though it will hit Broadway in 2018, stagings will be done outside of Broadway in 2017.

The same team behind the hugely successful musical adaptation of "The Lion King" will work their magic on the equally beloved animated film.

At the helm will be Alex Timbers, a respected theater director who staged Disney’s “Peter and the Starcatcher” as well as “Rocky” and “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. Peter Darling will be choreographing. He is the genius behind the hits "Billy Elliot" and "Matilda the Musical". The set and costumes will be designed by Tony award winning Bob Crowley, whose previous work includes "Aida" and "Mary Poppins".

We can't wait to hear how the awesome soundtrack which includes the infectious power ballad 'Let it Go' will be interpreted for the stage.

Let it Go won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 2013. It also won a Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media. The entire soundtrack was the fifth best-selling album of 2013. It was number one on the Billboard charts for 13 weeks.

The film, released in 2013 and featuring the voices of Tony award winning Broadway icon Idina Menzel and TV and film actress Kristen Bell, grossed over $400 million in the United States alone and more than $1.2 billion worldwide.

Three million princess Elsa dresses were sold a year after its release. There was even a spike in the number of newborns named Elsa.

Currently, there are two running Disney-based shows on Broadway: "The Lion King" and "Aladdin".

We can't wait to find out who the cast will be!
