Rumors are claiming that Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell are so not reprising their roles in "Frozen 2" anymore. Sources have claimed that both singer-actresses want to focus more on their relationships this time.

Australia News Newtwork reports that Idina Menzel wants to spend more time with her fiancé, Aaron Lohr, before they tie the knot soon. Insiders say that the "Let It Go" singer will have to quit her "Frozen 2" role as she needs to prepare for her upcoming wedding.

Kristen Bell, on the other hand, had reportedly backed out from doing the "Frozen 2" to focus more on her family. According to reports, the "Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?" singer and husband Dax Shepard want to add another baby in their family.

Because of these rumors, fans cannot help but speculate that Disney might cast new singers to replace Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell. Among the names being linked to the "Frozen 2" movie are Broadway Superstar Lea Salonga and Asia's Pop Royalty Sarah Geronimo, who are both Filipinos.

According to reports, "Let It Go" composer Robert Lopez, who happens to be a Filipino, wants to recruit talents from the Philippines this time. Insiders stated that both Lea Salonga and Sarah Geronimo are qualified to replace Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell.

As a matter of fact, Lea Salonga had voiced Mulan in 1998 and Princess Jasmine of Disney's "Aladdin in Nasira's Revenge" in 2001. Sarah Geronimo, on the other hand, was chosen to release her own version of Disney song called "The Glow" and she also had a chance to portray Rapunzel from "Tangled" in Disney's 2015 calendar, ABS-CBN News reports. With these, fans cannot help but think that these amazing Filipino singers are fit to join the "Frozen 2" movie.

Though these reports could possibly be true, neither Idina Menzel nor Kristen Bell has confirmed anything as of yet. Also, both Lea Salonga and Sarah Geronimo are yet to comment on these reports. So, "Frozen 2" fans should take everything with a grain of salt until it has been proven true and correct.

"Frozen 2" is expected to premiere in 2018. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for more "Frozen 2" news and updates!
