When we first heard about “Frozen Fever,” a new animated short, netizens speculated that it would be attached to Kennth Branagh’s upcoming live action Cinderella. Disney confirmed this on Wednesday and released the spiffy logo you see above. With both coming at the tail end of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, I really like the fade to green toward the bottom.
Wait, what?! Walt Disney Animation Studios’ all-new short “Frozen Fever,” will open in theatres on March 13, 2015, in front of the new live-action Cinderella.
Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, “Frozen Fever” features Anna’s birthday. Elsa and Kristoff want to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s ice powers may put more than just the party at risk. Don’t worry, Olaf’s in it, too, along with a new original song by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
This pretty much means we’ll get the opportunity to see how well our toddler handles the movie theater and whether anything airing after Olaf and Anna can hold the same attention. If you’ve missed it, here’s the trailer for Cinderella:
