Frozen fans can finally catch a glimpse of Frozen Fever, a new Disney short film starring Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven.
According to USA Today, Frozen Fever is a seven-minute animated film that will air before Disney’s live-action Cinderella movie. The Inquisitr previously shared a preview for Cinderella, which hits theaters on March 13.
Josh Gad, the actor who voices Elsa’s snowman friend, Olaf, told USA Today that the short film “feels like a continuation of a saga that has many parts still untold.” In the Frozen Fever teaser video below, co-directors Chuck Buck and Jennifer Lee share clips and still photos from the film, along with a few details about its plot. It takes place a few months after the events in Frozen, and Elsa is trying to throw a birthday bash for Elsa. Unfortunately, Elsa has a cold, and her illness is majorly complicating things.
Frozen fans will really love getting to see what happens when an ice queen gets a cold. According to Jennifer Lee, “surprising things occur that wreak a little havoc.”
So does a Queen Elsa sneeze freeze everything in sight? Or does Elsa gain a cool new power whenever she’s sick? In the photo below, she appears to be using magic to decorate a pretty new dress with flowers. Maybe her illness gives her the power to make green things grow instead of icing them over.
Another Frozen Fever still shows Olaf making mischief by stuffing his face with Anna’s birthday cake before her party begins. The frosted blue dessert definitely looks like it has Queen Elsa’s icy touch, but it’s also decorated with bright sunflowers.
The still below shows Elsa surveying the decorations for Anna’s birthday party. During his chat with USA Today, Chris Buck pointed out that Anna and Elsa have never celebrated a birthday together. Elsa sees her sister’s milestone as an opportunity to show her how much she loves her.
The final Frozen Fever still released shows an awkward family portrait. Sven and Olaf can’t resist hamming it up for the portrait painter.
During an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Lee revealed that she has been profusely apologizing to parents for the Frozen song “Let It Go.” Frozen came out over a year ago, but kids still can’t stop singing the catchy song. Luckily, parents of Frozen fans might get to listen to a new tune this year — Frozen Fever will feature a new song from “Let It Go” writers Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, and Josh Gad warned parents that it’s just as catchy as “Let It Go.”
