LOS ANGELES — “Frozen” favorites Anna, Elsa, and Olaf are headed back to the big screen in a new short film.

Walt Disney Animation Studios announced Wednesday it plans to show “Frozen Fever” in front of the live-action “Cinderella” that opens in theaters 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 $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 icing on their fairy tale cake.

So, are your kids so into “Frozen”? Are “Frozen” items the main thing on their wish lists for Christmas? Do they regularly dress like Elsa and Anna? Are there debates in your house about which one is the better princess?

Send us your favorite pictures of your kids dressed as “Frozen” characters on Instagram and Twitter #austin360frozen or email them to nvillalpando@statesman.com. We’ll build a photo gallery and maybe feature them in print.
