A 'Frozen' Sequel Is Coming—And We're Talking About a Full-Length Feature This Time


Update, 3/12:

Apparently, Frozen is getting more than just a short-film sequel. Disney has announced plans for a feature-length film!

"We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters," John Lasseter, the chief creative officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, told Variety (opens in new tab). "Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have come up with a great idea for a sequel and you will be hearing a lot more about it and we're taking you back to Arendelle. We are so excited about that."

While there's no release date yet, we hope they won't make us wait too long.

Original story, 2/27:

The trailer for the Frozen sequel, AKA Frozen Fever, has been released, and we're prepping our pipes for the next Idina Menzel moment. (But actually.)

Moviegoers to Cinderella will be treated to the short film, where they'll see Elsa and the gang prep for Anna's birthday party. And yes—Olaf is there and he's great.

It's rumored that Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the masterminds behind "Let It Go," have written another song for the sequel. Which we guess is both a blessing and a curse.

Watch the trailer below.
