A Broadway musical based on Disney's highly-popular animated movie Frozen is in the works, according to studio executives.

Frozen, which stars Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, has grossed $669 million (£418.1 million) at the worldwide box office and now movie bosses are hoping to capitalise on the surprise success of the film with a Broadway show.

Disney CEO Bob Iger tells Fortune.com, "This is for something bigger and longer... We're not demanding speed. We're demanding excellence."
