Eric Fisher’s long-awaited “Frozen” series, which premiered last month, continues to dominate the box office with more than $2 billion in ticket sales so far.
The Oscar-winning actor/director/writer/producer/director will star in his first “Fytch” movie in four years, and has recently been tapped to helm the next “Fynderworld” film.
Fisher, who has directed some of the biggest films of all time, is reprising his role as King Olaf, one of the three surviving dwarves who lived in the frozen world of Fynder.
In a recent interview with Variety, he explained that the new movie was not “about the journey of the dwarves” but was instead about “the journey of humankind.”
The actor told the outlet that he was surprised by the response from the movie’s fans.
“I didn’t think people would be as excited as they were,” he said.
“It was one of those surprises that’s been waiting for years.
We just couldn’t wait to get on it.”
The “Fyre” star recently signed on for the next installment of the franchise, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” in which he will play a new wizard.
Fischer is also attached to helm another upcoming “Fyrinnae” movie, and he has been attached to star in the next film in the franchise: “Furthest Five.”
Fisher will also star in “The Legend of Tarzan,” a new adaptation of Tarman’s classic fantasy novel.
The film is set in a dystopian future where humanity has gone extinct.
It will be released in 2019.

The “Boys Are Playin’,” which starred Will Ferrell and James Corden, opened with a total of $4.1 million at the box-office in June 2017, and now is set to take in an estimated $16.3 million in 2018.
The movie, about the family of two who live in the woods, is being released in 2018 on Netflix.
The actor will also reprise his role of King Olof in “Fantasyland,” which is set for release in 2019 on Disney Channel.
Fellow “Fly the Bard” writer/produce/director Peter Jackson is also reprising the role of Bard Olof.
The two co-wrote the script for “Fishing with Olaf” and will direct it.
