"Frozen" Is Heading to Broadway

Buena Vista(NEW YORK) -- Disney's latest box office hit, Frozen, is heading to Broadway. 

Bob Iger, the CEO and chairman of The Walt Disney Company, revealed the news in an interview with Fortune but emphasized there's no time frame.

"We're not demanding speed," he said, "We're demanding excellence."

The animated movie about two estranged sister princesses who must reunite to de-frost their homeland has earned more than $669 million worldwide and is Disney's number two all-time animated film, after The Lion King, which has earned more than $987 million.

Frozen's box office achievement has led to success in other areas.  The film's lead characters, Anna, voiced by Kristen Bell, and Elsa, voiced by Idina Menzel, have been turned into top-selling toys, and the soundtrack rose to number one on the Billboard 200 thanks to the hit songs, "Let It Go" and "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?"
