"Do you want to build a musical? / Come on lets go and pay / For overpriced tickets to please your young children / Who will never thank you anyway" 🎶

Just when you stopped compulsively singing that one one song (we refuse to name it), Disney announced that "Frozen" is set to receive the Broadway treatment in 2018. We would make a "great white way" pun, but The New York Times already did that.

According to the Times, the stage adaptation of the highest-grossing animated film of all time will bring together many of the same folks who made the original movie a resounding success like Robert Lopez, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Jennifer Lee.

Before the musical -- the 10th Broadway adaptation of a Disney film -- makes its way to New York, a developmental production will be organized outside of the city in 2017 to ensure it isn't a total Hans (BTW, that means an evil prince from the Southern Isles who takes advantage of your family struggles).

In addition to an animated holiday special that will reunite Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, and Josh Gad in 2017, Disney announced in March that we'll be getting an official sequel with all of the original cast members.

"Frozen" grossed $1.28 billion at the worldwide box office and won Disney two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song, so it only makes sense that the adventures of Anna and Elsa would continue.

That being said, it's the first time in forever we're kind of over the whole Disney musical thing UNLESS it's a one-man production featuring Channing Tatum.
