Disney To Follow 'Frozen' with Short Sequel in 2015

Subscribe to Kristen Bell alerts

Disney is keen to capitalize on the monumental success of the Oscar-winning 'Frozen' - now the biggest grossing animation in history - and will release a short sequel in spring 2015. Fans of Frozen have been campaigning for a sequel since last year, though producers confirmed there are "no plans" to release a full-length follow-up.

Instead, the original team will reunite in 'Frozen Fever', which sees Elsa and Kristoff throwing a birthday party for Anna. The movie will also feature a new original song from Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the song-writing duo behind 'Let It Go'. Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck will return to direct the short, which is being produced by Peter Del Vecho.

The original movie, about Anna and Kristoff's epic journey to find Elsa - whose icy powers trapped the kingdom in eternal winter - took over $1 billion at the global box office to become the fifth highest grossing movie, ever. 

Though unconfirmed, reports suggest Frozen Fever could be shown in cinemas prior to Kenneth Branagh's live action Cinderella remake, set for next March. 

Despite no plans for a feature-length Frozen sequel, Disney has numerous animated movies in production, including Big Hero 6. Set for November, the movie tells the story of a young robotics prodigy named Hiro and is robot Baymax. Disney Pixar continues to work on the hugely anticipated Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory and The Good Dinosaur, about a world in which dinosaurs never became extinct.
