Frozen Fever, Short Frozen Film, Coming to Theaters Spring 2015
Do you wanna build another snowman? In what's sure to send millions of fans young and old alike into a tizzy, Walt Disney Animation Studios has announced the Spring 2015 theatrical release of Frozen Fever, a short film that revisits the world and characters of 2013's Frozen.
The plot description for Frozen Fever is simple: "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."
According to Disney, Olaf the snowman will also appear in the film. The studio has yet to confirm whether the film's stars Idina Menzel (Queen Elsa), Kristen Bell (Princess Anna), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff), and Josh Gad (Olaf) will return to their roles.
The original filmmakers, director Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, and producer Peter Del Vecho, as well as songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez will reunite for the short.
Following its November 2013 release, Frozen has made more than $1.27 billion worldwide, making it the most-successful animated movie of all time. This past March, the flick won two Oscars: Best Original Song ("Let It Go") and Best Animated Feature.
Walt Disney Studios did not reveal which feature film Frozen Fever will accompany next year, but there are several candidates including Tomorrowland (featuring George Clooney), Inside Out (starring Amy Poehler), and the live-action Cinderella movie (with Cate Blanchett and Lily James.)
Fans, meanwhile, can get their Frozen fix as Elsa (played by Georgina Haig), Anna (Elizabeth Lail), and Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster) appear in live action form on ABC's Once Upon a Time. The fairy tale-based series returns to the network on Sunday, Sept. 28.
