Love it or hate it, there is little doubt that a big part of 2014 was the success (surprising, to some) of Frozen.
Disney quickly found themselves with a golden goose laying piles and piles of money, with the feature film shortly followed by merchandise item after merchandise item; quite literally, anything you could think of putting Anna, Elsa or Olaf on, it existed.
The public’s tolerance levels were severely tested too, with Let It Go (both Demi Lovato and Idina Menzel’s versions) getting as much airplay as one song could possibly get, picking up an Academy Award along the way.
Inevitably, talk began to turn to a sequel; after all, if anyone knows how to milk a franchise (behind George Lucas), it’s Disney. Surprisingly, word out of Mickey HQ was that the company were not planning a sequel. So if not a follow-up, how about a good, old-fashioned short?
Behold, Frozen Fever.
A synopsis has been released;
“In Frozen Fever, it’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk.”
Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee return to helm the short, while original songs from Let it Go writers Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
Frozen Fever will debut in front of Cinderella, due to be released on 13 March.
