#Idina Menzel is not sure "#Frozen 2" will be able to top the story and the songs of the first movie. The singer and Broadway star is currently promoting her upcoming series of shows in London and she was asked about the #Disney film.

Speaking with the hosts of ITV's "Good Morning Britain," Idina Menzel said that despite rumors about the sequel, she confirmed the writers are "still working on the story." She added, "As great as the writers are, you can probably never beat that," referring to the original movie and its hit song, "Let it Go."

Menzel also assured the audience she won't be singing the 2013 hit. She joked that many parents, such as the show's host Piers Morgan, already hate her.

She suggested that they might have had enough of "Let it Go" knowing how much children loved listening to the song over and over when "Frozen" first came out.

But turning serious, Menzel said she considers the song as a gift because it's the one thing everyone could identify with her. Watch Idina Menzel's interview in the video below.

'Frozen 2' in November 2019

Disney has already confirmed the sequel will hit theaters on Nov. 27, 2019. Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, who also wrote the songs of the first movie, will still direct the second movie.

Idina Menzel's co-star Kristen Bell will also return to voice Anna, Elsa's younger sister. Josh Gad will also be back to reprise his role as Olaf, the snowman. The stars excitedly posted tweets when Disney announced the theater date for "Frozen 2."

Producer Peter Del Vecho hinted to Entertainment Weekly that "Frozen 2" will help viewers understand the first movie better.

His pronouncements, however, revealed little about what fans can expect from the sequel.

Bell, on the other hand, said she's confident the writers will be able to come up with a great story as they have been developing the second installment for awhile. "That’s why it took them so long to even announce that we were doing the second one," she told Collider.

"Frozen" was inspired by the story of "The Snow Queen" from Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tales. It grabbed the Best Animated Film and Best Original Song awards from the Oscars, as well as several awards from the Golden Globes, Grammy, BAFTA and Critic's Choice.

The movie also earned $1.3 billion worldwide and spawned a Broadway stage musical, a Disney World attraction, a "Disney on Ice" show, an Anna & Elsa boutique, video games, books and comics and animated television series.
