After Frozen became the fifth highest grossing film of all time last year earning almost $1.3 billion dollars, it is no shocker that a sequel has been announced.

John Lasseter, producer of the first film, said to the press last week, “We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in the world with those characters.”

Frozen Fever is a short film that can currently be seen attached to screenings of Cinderella, out in theaters.

The short film is very simple and brief, detailing the snow queen, Elsa, coming down with a cold on her sister Anna’s birthday. Possessing magical snow powers, her sneezes create mini snowmen called “snowglies,” which are certain to lead to even more merchandise. The short film also has one song “Making Today a Perfect Day.”

While not as intoxicating as “Let it Go,” it is still very catchy. The short film’s title is self-referential to the cultural phenomenon of Frozen getting routed into every corner of American culture, with girls wearing Elsa dresses and Olaf beanie babies being gifted very frequently.

“Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have come up with a great idea that will take you back to Arendelle,” Lasseter also said.

No dates have been announced yet, but Frozen is far from dead, with this sequel and a Broadway musical coming soon.
