It's been a huge success at the box office, so Kristen Bell wants to ride that wave all the way to Broadway. The Veronica Mars star admitted that she would love to star in the theatrical version of the animated film, Frozen.

"Yes, without question," the petite actress who voiced Princess Anna told the Inquirer.net. "There are a lot of variables involved. I plan on jumping those hurdles and figuring it all out, should I be invited to be a part of the cast."

Walt Disney CEO and Chairman Bob Iger told Fortune magazine in January that Frozen was in early development for the stage. He shared, "We're not demanding speed. We're demanding excellence."

Bell might have to wait a while for the film to be adapted for the stage, but she had "a splendid time" working with Robert Lopez and wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who won the Oscar for Best Song for "Let It Go" in March.

The 33-year-old actress explained, "They are unbelievably talented. We have talked about working on a different show altogether and other upcoming projects. We are figuring out what works for everybody."

This wouldn't be Bell's Broadway debut, though. She starred as Becky Thatcher in the musical version of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer while she was a student at New York University back in 2001. She then went on to play Susanna Walcott in The Crucible about a year later.

She knows how incredible Frozen is to fans of all ages. She said, "...what is really special to me is that the movie is not about romantic love. It's about committing to someone, to believing in someone even when they don't believe in themselves. It's a wonderful set of ideals to give to kids in this modern age."
