Kristen Bell is looking forward to "getting her hands" on the 'Frozen 2' script but says the animated film is still in development

Kristen Bell is "waiting to get her hands" on the 'Frozen 2' script.

The 36-year-old actress - who voices the character of Anna in the hit Disney animated movie - hopes she can bring the character back to life in the recording studio soon.

Speaking during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she said: "We haven't started recording, we're just waiting to get our hands on the script. They take a lot of time over there to just perfect it, and it has to go through a lot of development to make sure that it's exactly the story that needs to be told. I hope we start recording soon."

Whilst Kristen is excited for a sequel, her two children - Lincoln, three, and Delta, 19 months, with her husband Dax Shepard - may not be so keen as the blonde beauty previously revealed they are not big fans of the animated movie.

She shared: "They live to break down my self-esteem. It's that, and they don't watch much TV. I mean they're one and three. They're new to it all.

"But Lincoln was sick last month and Dax had said, 'Should we put on a movie? Should we blow her mind and put on 'Frozen'?' And we did, and about 15 minutes in she said, 'Mummy, I think you should turn this off.' She didn't like it."

It is not yet known what the plot of the movie will be but Idina Menzel - who voices Elsa - is backing a campaign to give Elsa a girlfriend.

She said: "I think it's great. Disney's just gotta contend with that. I'll let them figure that out. No matter what, Elsa changed my life."

  • Directed by: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee

Elsa (Menzel) and Anna (Bell) head off on a dangerous journey after Elsa hears voices calling her to a distant land. The plot is less involving than the character interaction, but Olaf (Gad) is the comedic highlight and while it may be less compelling than the original, it's got all the ingredients for a hit.
