Rejoice "Frozen" fans. Disney is bringing its hit, Oscar-winning animated film to the Great White Way, with a Broadway bow for Anna and Elsa aiming for the spring of 2018.

EGOT-winner Robert Lopez ("The Book of Mormon," "Avenue Q") and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who also composed the songs for the film, will write the score -- featuring songs such as "Love Is an Open Door," "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" and the Oscar-winning "Let It Go."
