Let it go

Disney is bringing a new Frozen story to movie theaters

Despite a $1.27 billion worldwide gross and an absolutely inescapable anthem, Disney has been slow to capitalize on the smash success of its animated musical Frozen — until now.

While a full-scale Frozen sequel isn't in the works (yet), Disney just announced that that it will be continuing the Frozen story in Frozen Fever, a new animated short film slated to arrive next year.

Frozen Fever will be helmed by Frozen co-directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee. The story is set on Anna's birthday, as Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf attempt to throw her the best party ever — until Elsa's powers get in the way. Frozen Fever will also feature a new song by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the Oscar-winning team behind Frozen's "Let It Go."

Frozen Fever will hits theaters in Spring 2015.
