‘Frozen 2′ update: Story to show a more playful Elsa; Will Olaf get a love interest?

Disney‘s latest princesses are back as the studio finally confirmed that the groundbreaking film, “Frozen,” will have a sequel with the production already underway.

The story will reportedly depict a different side of Elsa, from the brooding and frightened princess who developed into a strong, determined and motivated queen of Arendelle. The plot will also pick up from the playful Elsa momentarily seen during animated short “Frozen Fever,” shown at the beginning of live-action movie “Cinderella.”

Director Chris Buck teases the film and said, “In the previous production, Elsa had such a difficult journey, and finally she is just beginning to feel like she should be open and enjoys life again. That is what was good about her in “Frozen Fever” follow up sequel – we could enjoy with Elsa, and that bit will be unveiled in the next one.”

Although Elsa will somehow have a good change, Buck reassured the fans that her relationship and connection with Anna will still be a central point in the sequel.

Meanwhile, voice lead actresses Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel as Anna and Elsa respectively, will also return to reprise their roles. Rumors have it that their characters are expected to have brand new dresses to replace the iconic blue gown that became a staple in little girls’ costume closets.

Bell took it to Twitter to previously announce the news and said, “Dreams really do come 2!!! #FROZEN2 #itsofficial.”

Director Jennifer Lee also tweeted her enthusiasm, “At last, I can say – FROZEN 2!!!! I’m beyond excited to create alongside my Frozen family!”

Josh Gad who voices the ever-cheerful Olaf will also come back and some reports are claiming that a love interest for the snowman may be introduced.

No official date has been set yet but based on the history of the franchise, the sequel may hit the theaters in 2018.

‘Frozen Fever’: Meet The Snowgies, The Frosty Little Characters On March 13

The plot of the short film centers on Anna‘s birthday, in which Elsa and Kristoff both prepare to give her the best birthday. In the middle of things, Elsa gets a cold, which caused her icy powers to do something unexpected.

The members of the voice cast include Kristen Bell, who will reprise her role as Anna, Idina Menzel as elsa, Jonathan Groff as Kristoff, and Josh Gad as Olaf.

The film is set to be piloted by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, along with Peter Del Vecho and Aimee Scribner as producers. It will be produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios and Motion Pictures.

New lovable characters, which will be called “snowgies“, will be introduced in “Frozen Fever“. They are created as “mini-Olafs” through Elsa’s sneeze. Are they going to replace the “Olaf” the fans have known?

Producer Peter Del Vecho shared his thoughts about these tiny snowmen in Yahoo! Movies.
“We realized we wanted Olaf to remain pure, so quickly it evolved into these fun little snowballs we call ‘snowgies‘ that bring a lot of mischief and fun to the short,” he said.

Could the snowgies be the ice version of the minions?
As per Inquisitor, the snowgies may resemble the minions since these tiny snowmen have similar appearance and possess high-pitched tiny voices.

“Frozen” was released last November 22, 2013 and it got an estimated domestic gross of $400 million and an estimated foreign gross of $873 million, for an estimated worldwide gross of $1 billion. The film also got two Academy Awards – Best Animated Feature Film of the Year and Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Song “Let It Go”.
Frozen Fever” is slated to premiere in theaters and cinemas along with Walt Disney Pictures’ Cinderella on March 13, 2015.

The ‘Frozen Fever’ Snowgies Might Be The New Minions

Disney’s Frozen Fever will introduce some adorable new friends for lovable snowman Olaf, but their origin story is kind of gross. According to a recent report, these mini-snowmen will magically appear whenever Elsa sneezes. In other words, they’re frozen, living snot bubbles.

According to Yahoo! Movies, the new poster for Disney’s Frozen Fever short features the first good look at Elsa’s latest creations. The cute little critters are called “snowgies,” and they’re the result of Elsa suffering from a bad cold. Producer Peter Del Vecho calls them “mini Olafs,” but he hinted that they’re not quite as intelligent as Olaf. He describes the snowgies as “fun little snowballs” that “bring a lot of mischief and fun” to Frozen Fever.

The snowgies might remind you a bit of the minions from Despicable Me — they all look alike, and they probably have adorably squeaky little voices. If they are based on the minions, you can’t blame Disney for being a bit inspired by the Universal Pictures characters — as Time points out, the little yellow pills are so popular that they have their own full-length movie hitting theaters on July 10.

To be fair, the minions seem to be somewhat inspired by the little green aliens in the Toy Story movies and the rabbits from the Raving Rabbids video game. Apparently, there’s just something appealing about mischievous masses of look-alike characters with high-pitched voices.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, Frozen Fever is just seven minutes long, but Frozen fans will have to pay for a full-price movie ticket to see it. The animated short will hit theaters on March 13, and it will air before Disney’s live-action Cinderella movie.

Frozen Fever is set shortly after the events in Frozen, and it focuses on Queen Elsa’s attempt at planning Anna’s birthday party. Unfortunately, she catches a nasty cold, and more snowgies are born every time she sneezes. The naughty little snow-snot creatures will probably make sure that nothing goes as planned, but it looks like things turn out all right in the trailer below — Olaf, the snowgies, Sven, and Kristoff surprise Anna with a special birthday snow pile topped with her birthday cake. Elsa looks almost as surprised as her sister, but she doesn’t seem to be quite as impressed.

While chatting to Yahoo! Movies about Frozen Fever, director Chris Buck shared something interesting about Kristen Bell, the actress who voices Anna. According to Buck, Bell and husband Dax Shepard will have to expand their family again if Disney decides to do a Frozen sequel.

Minions

Unfortunately for Frozen fans, Chris Buck and co-director Jennifer Lee recently told BuzzFeed that a full-length Frozen sequel isn’t currently in the works. However, the directors are “fairly certain” that they’ll eventually revisit Arendelle for a third time, and perhaps the snowgies will pop up again in Frozen 2.

Are you planning on taking your favorite little Anna and Elsa fans to a showing of Cinderella just so that they can see Frozen Fever?

‘Frozen Fever’ will warm kids’ hearts

It’s hard to let Frozen go, and now you don’t have to.

The Oscar-winning movie’s devotees can revel in the effervescent seven-minute animated short film Frozen Fever for more icy fun (*** out of four; not rated; opens March 13 with Cinderella).

635584365851887166-FROZEN-SISTERS

Directed by Frozen filmmakers Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, Fever is centered on a surprise birthday party for Princess Anna (Kristen Bell) thrown by her older sister, Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) in the Norwegian-flavored kingdom of Arendelle.

Elsa wants to make it a perfect day for her sister, so she enlists the help of Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his reindeer Sven, as well as Olaf the snowman (Josh Gad).

The good-natured tale revisits some key moments from the 2013 hit and adds some vivid imagery, including emerald-green dresses for the royal sisters. Given the massive popularity of its predecessor — Frozen is the highest-grossing animated film of all time — the short is bound to appeal to legions of fans.

As Elsa showers Anna with gifts and special experiences for her birthday, Elsa begins to sniffle and show signs of sickness. Anna worries that she might be catching a cold.

Elsa dismisses the idea. Besides, she says, “A cold never bothered me anyway.”

(The idea for that line might have come from comments Menzel has made about children singing those lyrics from the Frozen hit Let It Go, not realizing the original line was “the cold never bothered me anyway.”)

The short, which will run in theaters with Disney’s live-action Cinderella, opens with Elsa putting the finishing touches on a beautiful, four-tiered, turquoise-colored ice cream cake, decorated with sunflowers. When she goes to wake her younger sister, Anna is fast asleep and sporting her signature tousled bedhead, a familiar image from the original movie.

This sequel of sorts features an original tune, Making Today a Perfect Day, by Frozen‘s Oscar-winning musical team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, with the lyrics “We’re making today a perfect day for you.” It’s not as catchy as most of the Frozen soundtrack, but it’s pleasant. It’s also likely to become a song heard at thousands of little girls’ birthday parties.

Although Fever is not as exhilarating and inventive as the original, it’s still a treat to see an abridged tale of these two sisters in a warmhearted spinoff.

If there was ever a Walt Disney animated feature that has absolutely taken the world by storm, it has been the story of the love between two sisters told in the animated adventure Frozen.

In just a matter of days, Frozen fans will get to revisit the magic all over again as the animated short Frozen Fever hits theaters alongside the latest Walt Disney live-action adventure Cinderella, starring Downton Abbey actress Lily James and Game of Thrones star Richard Madden as Cinderella and Prince Charming.Back in February, fans got a look at a number of images from the upcoming family-friendly adventure that gave us our first real look at what we could expect from the film.

Now, we have a look at a new poster for the film that introduces us to a group of adorable new characters that may just help warm a frozen heart, the Snowgies.

In the new poster, which you can see below, we see sisters Anna and Elsa happy as can be as they prepare for Anna’s big birthday bash. Front and center is everyone’sfavorite sun-loving snowman Olaf. Alongside them are the mischievous little Snowgies.

You see…in Frozen Fever, Elsa is attempting to prepare the castle to host a big birthday party for her sister Anna. There is just one little hitch in her plan, shehas a bit of a cold. Something like this is bad enough for a normal girl, but imagine this same issue on a girl that has frozen powers.Every time that Queen Elsa lets out a sneeze, more Snowgies come flurrying into the world.

Surprisingly enough, the version of the Snowgies you see in the poster were not always the way they were intended. In an interview with Yahoo! Movies, Frozen Fever producer Peter Del Vecho tells fans that the Snowgies started off as something much different, mini Olafs.

Thankfully, they decided to go another route with the characters.

While we absolutely love Olaf, we can’t quite see him being the fatherly type as he is very much a free-spirited and fun loving kid at heart himself. Besides, there are some things in this world that you just shouldn’t mess with, and this is one of them.

It comes as no surprise that Walt Disney would be looking to expand on the Frozen brand. Frozen has brought in an amazing $440.7 million domestically. Along with they shopping $873.5 million the film has earned overseas, it has a worldwide gross of over $1.27 billion. Yes…billion.

Just what does the future hold for Anna, Elsa, and the rest of the Frozen gang? You won’t have to wait very much longer to find out, but you will have to see the live-action version of Cinderella to find out.

New Frozen Fever Poster Reveals Snowgies Characters

Frozen Fever” may only be an animated short follow-up to Frozen, as opposed to a full fledged sequel, but it still is going to find the time to introduce some new characters that will undoubtedly move plenty of Disney merchandise well into the next Christmas Deep Freeze in December.

frozen_fever_1

Yep, meet the “Snowgies,” who are so cute that the poster already makes you want to give them a hug. It appears that Olaf is about to be a big brother, because Elsa is up to creating snow-based life forms again.

Producer Peter Del Vecho told Yahoo that the characters come to life when Elsa sneezes. They were initially supposed to be like mini Olafs until they realized that they wanted Olaf to remain unique. “So quickly it evolved into these fun little snowballs we call ‘snowgies’ that bring a lot of mischief and fun to the short.”

Well they certainly tend to suggest that Elsa’s ability to create life should take on some biblical connotations past a certain point. But ignoring the Frankenstein shaped elephant in this room, they definitely look adorable—like miniature Stay Puft Marshmallow Men in their infancy.

Frozen Fever” reunites Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck on directorial duties, and stars the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, and Jonathan Groff. It will appear in theaters this Friday in front of the live-action remake of Disney’s Cinderella, which stars Lily James and Richard Madden.

‘Frozen Fever’ Online: Where To Watch The New Frozen Short & Hear The New Song Online

Frozen Fever” is out now! Aaaaaaand if you want to see it, you have only one choice: Go see the live-action Cinderella in theaters. Right now, there’s no other way to legally see the new Frozen short. But don’t despair—You can listen to the new song, “Making Today A Perfect Day,” online. But alas, no visuals. Well played, Disney Cartoon Costume. Well played. Here’s the official audio of the song:

’Frozen Fever’ Online: Disney Locks It Down
The “Frozen Fever” song is a big, solid chunk of “Frozen Fever,” so listening to it can give you a pretty good sense of what the short is about, and what Arendelle is like now that peace (and normal weather patterns) have returned. But still, I yearn for the visuals. This is the best we can get… the official trailer for the short:

You can also buy “Making Today A Perfect Day” on iTunes—an old Apple music platform that allowed people to buy music online before streaming came around— or check out the official lyrics from Disney. Best one: “A cold never bothered me anyway.” GET IT???

Anyway, we have no idea if Disney is eventually going to let us buy “Frozen Fever” online. For the moment, the trailer and the song are the only bits of it we can actually watch. Otherwise, you’ve got to go see Cinderella. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if that’s worth it.

But Cinderella won’t be in theatres forever… whereas your kids (or your own self) are going to want to watch “Frozen Fever” ridiculously often, just like the original. So Disney will probably release it online or as a home media release eventually, like they did with Frozen Sing-Along Edition. But that’s not right now. Right now, it’s Cinderella for you.

There Probably Won’t Be A Proper Sequel To ‘Frozen’ For Some Time

FROZEN FEVER

Frozen Fever” is a clever name for Disney’s short-film follow-up to “Frozen,” and not just because the seven-minute mini-movie is built around Elsa having a head cold. In the 16 months since “Frozen” was released in theaters, the animated musical has broken box office records, won two Oscars, sold millions of copies of its soundtrack and spawned enough viral videos to fill two YouTubes. Put it this way: The official trailer for “Frozen Fever” has nearly 18 million views.

“I still can’t believe that,” co-director Jennifer Lee said to The Huffington Post about the number. “A trailer for a short!” added co-director Chris Buck.

Such is life in the world of “Frozen,” which is why Lee and Buck were initially a little intimidated about going back to the fictional kingdom of Arendelle. It was only after the idea to build the short around Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel) trying to throw Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell) a birthday party while also battling a head cold that things clicked into place.

“Whatever pressure we had for the future went away a little bit,” Buck said of cracking the plot. “We know these characters pretty well. We know what works for them and what doesn’t work for them. So at that point it’s all about having fun.”

Part of their enjoyment came from stretching what audiences might expect from Elsa, who spent most of the first film locked in a kingdom of isolation. In “Frozen Fever,” she shows a goofy side that rivals anything Anna did in “Frozen.”

“Elsa was much more of a tragic figure in ‘Frozen,’” Lee said. “Now she’s a lot of fun. Idina loved it. There was a lot of laughing when we recorded her for the song ['Making Today a Perfect Day' from 'Let It Go' writers Robert Lopez and Kristen-Anderson Lopez] and the short.”

But while Lee and Buck are thrilled with the finished product — and Lee is currently writing the book for the forthcoming “Frozen” Broadway musical — don’t expect “Frozen Fever” to become “Frozen 2″ any time soon.

“It was really nice to do a short and just get back with these characters who we love without the pressure of having to do a huge sequel,” Buck said. “We’re going to take a little bit of a break from the ‘Frozen’ stuff before diving into anything else.”

Sneak peek: Disney’s new ‘Frozen Fever’ coming in March

1425020619761

Just as kids were preparing to “Let It Go,” Disney is back with a new “Frozen” Film.

The seven minute short movie is called, “Frozen Fever,” and will air before Disney’s “Cinderella,” which will be released March 13.

The short film reunites the award-winning creative team behind the 2013 blockbuster, including directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee.

Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the duo who gave us the ironically titled “Let It Go,” have also committed to supplying a new song for “Frozen Fever.”

The original movie told the story of a princess named Anna and her older sister, Elsa, whose icy powers drove a rift between the siblings and threatened the survival of their homeland. Throw in a talking snowman named Olaf and an outdoorsy companion named Kristoff, and you have “Frozen,” has earned more than $1.27 billion worldwide.

In “Frozen Fever,” Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Kristoff are all reunited for Anna’s birthday, which may be put at risk because of Elsa’s chilly abilities.
