Walt Disney Animation Studios announced Wednesday it plans to show Frozen Fever in front of the live-action Cinderella that opens in theatres on March 13.

The short reunites the Oscar-winning directing team from Frozen: Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck. It will tell the story of Elsa and Kristoff’s attempt to plan a birthday party for Anna.

Frozen is the fifth-highest grossing film of all time, with over US$1.27 billion worldwide, and it continues to resonate with audiences.

Disney has had massive success with live-action updates of its animated classics, including 2014’s Maleficent. But the promise of a Frozen short with Cinderella will likely prove to be the icing on their fairy-tale cake.
