Last week Disney Animation Studios released several stills from the upcoming short, “Frozen Fever,” set to premiere with Kenneth Branagh’s live action retelling of Cinderella on March 13th. Elsa and Kristoff plan a birthday party for Anna, but on the day of the celebration, the Queen catches, ahem, cold.
The stills show Olaf stuffing some chocolate in his face. Elsa models her Spring dress with the floral imagery we saw when early merchandise related to the short was leaked. There’s a portrait seemingly inspired by Awkward Family Photos. In a nice callback to Frozen, Anna’s Coronation Day bedhead is apparently normal. But I think my favorite is the hand painted “Happy Birthday” hung in the courtyard that’ll resonate with young viewers and inspire some hands on party prep at home.
This week a brief featurette with directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee. Check it out and catch a few more glimpses of the thing kids will be crazy about this year.
