"Frozen" and Aaron Sorkin's "To Kill A Mockingbird" both heading to Broadway in 2017

Both of these hugely popular stories are being adapted for the stage

Two Oscars, $1.28 billion at the box office, a short film and an upcoming sequel, Frozen fever is still running pretty hot.

Today it was confirmed that the hit animated movie would be adapted for a run in Broadway, following in the footsteps of fellow Disney films such as Beauty and the Beast, The Lion KingTarzan, The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins and Aladdin.

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who wrote the film's original music and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Let It Go," will return to the project to the score the live-action stage show.

A limited pre-Broadway run will take place in the summer of 2017, followed by a full release in Spring 2018.

Meanwhile, in other 'Oscar-y things heading to Broadway', Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin will be writing an adaptation of Oscar-winning movie To Kill A Mockingbird for the stage.

Based on the 1960 novel, Sorkin - who wrote the stage adaptation for A Few Good Men, as well as the screenplays for Steve Jobs, The Social Network and Moneyball - will provide the script, set to be produced by his regular movie production collaborator Scott Rubin, and directed by Tony Award winning Bartlett Sher (The King and I, Fiddler on the Roof).

The play is set to arrive on Broadway for the 2017/2018 season, with no word of casting announcements just yet, and while the novel has been performed on stage previously, this will mark the story's Broadway premiere.
