Clear your schedules, Disney has finally announced a release date for Frozen 2, the sequel to the highest-grossing animated flick of all time.

You'll have to wait a while, however, as it's not slated for release until November 27, 2019, a whopping six years after Frozen hit the big screen and became an instant classic.

The long wait may be due to the filmmakers' determination to make it a worthy addition.

Co-director Chris Buck previously said, "How do we live up to the phenomenon of the first one?  There's a lot of pressure.  And we'll put that on ourselves too, we'll be very demanding about how good this one has to be."

Kristen Bell will reprise the roll of Anna.

Also slated for release in 2019 is are Toy Story 4 and The Lion King live action.  2020, meanwhile, will see the as-yet-untitled Indiana Jones and three 3D Marvel films.
