Walt Disney Animation Studios is preparing to release a collection of their acclaimed short films on Blu-Ray and DVD next week. The set will include the groundbreaking Mickey mouse short ‘Get A Horse!’, Oscar winners ‘Paperman’ and ‘Feast,’ and classics like ‘John Henry’, ‘The Ballad of Nessie’, and ‘Tangled Ever After’. The big draw for most fans will likely be ‘Frozen Fever,’ the short from earlier this year that played in front of Kenneth Branagh’s live action ‘Cinderella’ starring Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, and Helena Bonham Carter.
Set after the widely popular 2013 film that took the world by (snow) storm, ‘Frozen Fever’ finds Queen Elsa, Kristoff, and the kingdom of Arendelle as they prepare for Princess Anna’s birthday. However, Elsa has come down with a bit of a cold, which turns out to be more of a problem than your average cold.
Along with the shorts, the collection will also contain a series of all-new extras including introductions and interviews with the Disney Animation filmmakers themselves. As a special sneak peek at the upcoming release, Coming Soon has released a clip that goes behind the scenes of the beloved ‘Frozen’ short. Check it out below as producers Aimee Scribner and Peter Del Vecho join directors Chris Buck and Jennifer to talk about the making of ‘Frozen Fever’:
In ‘Frozen Fever’ it’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but when Elsa catches a cold, her powers may put more than just the party at risk.
