“For the first time in forever,” we’re getting some new Frozen. Yes!

After a long hibernation, one very special Frozen musical slated to hit Broadway in 2018, and one Disney World Epcot Frozen-themed ride said to arrive very soon, Disney announced it was giving the people what they wanted: more Frozen on the big screen, in the form of a sequel.

Now there’s FINALLY proof it’s happening for real: According to Kristen Bell, the actress who plays the role of Anna in the original animated film, the production on Frozen 2 may start as soon as this month! Can we start dancing now?

In an interview with Collider—ostensibly to promote Bell’s new film The Boss, but come on, what interviewer isn’t going to pivot to Frozen?—she dished on if they’ve started recording:

“Not yet. We’re just about to. They’ve just written it and they’re still doing tweaks, but I think we should be recording this month. The story is great, and they exude quality. What I know about that whole team is that they wouldn’t just put something out to put it out. That’s why it took them so long to even announce that we were doing a second one. Generally when you have a first successful movie you want to make a second one. It took them a while because they wanted to figure out what story they needed to tell and what would be important and engaging and I think they found it.”

In case you’re concerned that it’s been so long since the cast has gotten together, don’t worry. Kristen says that they reunite all the time, staving off any Frozen withdrawal:

“We record all the time for different parks or different parks that open overseas, we’ll do a mashup for the rides. So we actually get to go in—Josh [Gad] and Idina [Menzel], Jonathan [Groff] and I—all the time and record new bits of the music. When Epcot center opens we’ll record a bunch of new music. So we have little bits of Frozen in our life at all times, but I’m excited to get started on the new movie.”

We can’t wait till they get together again and create some more magic!
