If you (or more likely, your kids) are still singing the songs from Disney’s smash hit “Frozen” more than a year later, don’t worry — you’ll have a whole new set of songs in the not-too-distant future.
Disney announced plans for a “Frozen 2,” much to the delight of children everywhere and questionable enthusiasm from parents still trying to “Let It Go” from the first one. While there is no official release date as of yet, it’s planned for 2018.
So there’s plenty of time to brush up on your “Frozen” trivia with these 25 behind-the-scenes facts.

When a recent caller to C-SPAN starts telling about an experience he had in Philly, he sounds just like an ordinary audience member calling in. The host has no idea it’s a version of the Fresh Prince theme until that part about mom getting scared about a fight.

Hopefully the joker is working up a slightly more obfuscated version to call back with soon.
