Disney's "Frozen" performed better than anyone would have ever expected. Aside from being the fifth highest grossing film in history, it's marked itself a legend by becoming the highest grossing animated film in history.

According to The Huffington Post, the hype of "Frozen" isn't going to be going away anytime some, not if Disney can help it. The site writes that the executives over at Disney want to milk this franchise for all its worth and has already rolled out a 5-year-plan on how to keep "Frozen" in the spotlight.

The plan includes a mix of theater gigs, music releases as well as using Disney to continue the "Frozen" flame going. HuffPost also points to consumer products including a karaoke album which incidentally bowed in Billboard's top 20.

Disney has identified the franchise as one of its top 5 and Disney CEO Bob Iger commented to investment analysts saying, "So you can expect us to take full advantage of that over the next at least five years," quoted HuffPost.

Disney's "Frozen" and ABCs "Once Upon A Time"

One highly anticipated cross-over for the animated film is its inclusion in popular fantasy TV series "Once Upon A Time." Fans went bonkers when Elsa surprised everyone by appearing in Storybrooke during the series' third season finale.

One of the biggest concerns for Adam Horowitz in the inclusion of "Frozen" to its storyline is doing the film justice. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the ABC showrunners, writer-producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz promised audiences that they would honor the spirit of the hit fantasy film.

A recent teaser was tweeted by Horowitz that gave fans insider information on the title for the second episode of season 4. He posted a picture of the front page of the episode script.

It tells us that the title of the series show is "White Out," which we can only assume refers to snow or something chilling? IB Times notes that the writer is none other than Jane Espenson who has been "a long-time consulting producer and writer for the ABC series, who also worked on 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' 'Gilmore Girls' and 'Dollhouse,' among many other shows."

The photo said, "Here's another #OnceUponATime #titlespoiler -- hope to see ya 9/28 for season 4!"

What're your thoughts on the continued influx of "Frozen" over the next five years? Let us know below!
