Everyone Needs To Chill Out Over These Stupid Rumors About A Frozen Sequel

By  | 

elsa frozen calm downLet’s get this out of the way first: no, Disney has not inadvertently revealed the name of a secret Frozen sequel by securing a bunch of Internet domain names related to the phrase ‘strange magic’. No matter how much you want it to be true. The latest display of what we can charitably call ‘Frozen Fever’ (because ‘Disney Obsession Disorder’ is a bit harsh) comes from a blog called Stitch Kingdom, which is insisting that Disney is making a Frozen sequel entitled Strange Magic, because … reasons.

Obviously Disney is going to be making a Frozen sequel at some point, because Frozen is a cash cow they’re going to keep mooing as long as possible. But Stitch Kingdom (which proclaims itself the ‘#1 unofficial source for news on Disney’ … agree to disagree, I guess) is 110% convinced that Frozen 2: Strange Magic is going to Be A Thing. Why? Because two different characters in Frozen used the phrase ‘strange magic’. Two characters, you guys!! It’s clearly meant to be!

For those of us who live on Planet Earth and not in the kingdom of Arendelle, the registration of ‘strange magic’ domain names obviously has something to do with the Marvel/Disney comic book movie Doctor Strange that’s scheduled to come out in 2016. The character of Doctor Strange is also known as the ‘Sorcerer Supreme’ in nerd circles, which might get you a connection to the word ‘magic’ as used in the domain names Disney registered. Stitch Kingdom actually made the connection between Doctor Strange and Strange Magic themselves, as you can see below. But they didn’t let silly little facts like that get in the way of their Frozen freakout, even after someone in the comments pointed out the existence of a forthcoming Doctor Strange movie:

Consider it Disney’s contribution to the ‘Wheel of Fortune’ ‘Before and After’ category of puzzles — ‘Doctor Strange Magic.’ Disney today registered several domain names that in no uncertain terms point to a film title — Strange Magic. But the strangest bit of it all is that there appears to be little-to-no mention of it anywhere to be found on the interwebs […] I’ll tell you why it’s definitely not Doctor Strange — Disney registered it, not Marvel.

‘Doctor Strange Magic’ … God, what could this mysterious riddle mean? I can’t find a single thing on the Interwebs that even hints at the answer! What a puzzle! We may never fully understand Disney’s tortuous ways!

The story has since been picked up by about eighty hojillion other equally-naive outlets, because a certain portion of the population is frantically chomping at the bit for news about a possible sequel to Frozen. Disney hasn’t actually promised the sequel we all know is coming yet, but there is a short film set in the Frozen universe to be released next spring. But a short film is simply not good enough. More Elsa. MORE.

If you are one of the people desperate enough to believe despite all evidence to the contrary, I don’t know what to tell you. Maybe an Elsa doll will make an appearance in Toy Story 4, which is apparently a thing that’s going to happen. In the meantime, take a few deep breaths, and then take a trip to Ebay to buy some horrifically overpriced exclusive Frozen toys to ease your pain. It’s all going to be okay … eventually. Just not in 2016, because that’s when you’ll be eating your hearts out at me and all the other comic book fans lining up to see Doctor Strange working his magic on the big screen.

    The phrase “strange magic” has appeared in approximately 10,000 Disney and Disney related movies. I’m surprised it took them this long, to be honest.

    And that Frozen sequel will be coming the moment it stops making approximately eleventy bajillion dollars a week, so in about three or four years.

    I haven’t even seen this movie and I’m sick of it, I feel for all the parents whose kids are watching it on DVD 24 hours a day.

      Same! I haven’t seen it and don’t want to, and my kid is too young to be swept up in the hoopla. Just fine with me. We’ll stick with Ratatouille and a Wreck It Ralph.

      Now Ratatouille I could see a few more times!

      I’m actually terrified of being stuck herding little ones at the family Christmas party where there will be at least one copy of Frozen on DVD. Thinking of putting into play an alternate plan to ruin Christmas:

      “Hey kids, who wants to watch a magical fairy tale from Scandifakeia?”

      *puts on 15 hours of Der Ring des Nibelungen * *cue children crying*

      Oh my God – Ratatouille sequel PLEASE!!!

    • 2Well

      I hated Ratatouille. I just couldn’t suspend my disbelief and kept thinking about the bubonic plague.

      I loved, loved, loved it. Maybe it’s because I was in the food industry for so long – idk.

      It is my favorite Pixar movie. My toddler loves to help me in the kitchen and I always call him Lil Chef.

      YES. I want to know Remy and Linguine are doing!

      YES. I would rather watch either of those movies again over Frozen.

      I can’t click the link but would this happen to be “*BLEEP* me up the North Mountain?”

      Because this is amazing, if so.

      No it’s not that, it’s I HATE FROZEN from the I HATE EVERYTHING YouTube channel.

    Word is, they’ve tapped Benedict Cumberbatch to play the Master of Mysticism.

      That’s what I’ve heard, too, which I’m not excited about. Soon all of Tumblr is going to be engulfed by one huge Benglybum Cucumberpants Star Trek/Sherlock/LotR/Marvel mishmash. 😐

      OH – you just made me think of what if Dr. Strange meets Tony Stark and they both try to out-Sherlock each other?

      Quick, someone cast Johnny Lee Miller in a supporting role!

    With all due respect, you have some serious reading comprehension issues. First of all, I never insisted it was a Frozen sequel. I explicitly say it’s just an unknown film project which could even be a DreamWorks film. I do mention that the phrase is used twice in Frozen and if it’s used in other Disney films, let’s see some specifics instead of making gross statements.

    Also, DoctorStrangeMagic.com is not a domain name. Not even sure where the hell you came up with that one. You are the one grasping at straws trying to link it to Doctor Strange simply because there’s a Doctor Strange movie (which by the way Stitch Kingdom has been talking about since 2011) and the character performs magic via the word sorcerer. If that were even remotely the case, then why not register domains for any number of dozens of other synonyms for the word?

    First, as I already stated, it’s unprecedented for Disney to register names for Marvel. Marvel is still doing much of its own publicity and promotion. Second, the domain names clearly suggest the title is Strange Magic. Not only because they’re followed by words like ‘movie’ and ‘the film,’ but this also has precedent..

    Third, congratulations on trying to linkbait by trying to make my site look guilty of the same. Your sarcastic, witless charm really puts you in a class of your own.

    I hope to God you’re right. I was hoping that within the year the Frozen hype to die a natural death and would be referred to later as my daughter’s “short Frozen phase”. It’s already lasted far longer, and I’m so burnt out by all the Frozen crap and Frozen books.
