If you haven’t heard, Disney made a film short called “Frozen Fever,” which welcomes Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf back to the big screen. It’s set to open in theaters on March 13, 2015, in front of Disney’s Cinderella, a live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale.
Facts About Frozen and Why Make Frozen Fever
It’s no secret, Disney’s Frozen is the fifth highest grossing film of all time and the highest grossing animated film earning more than $1.27 billion globally. We’ve all been a part of the craze. Even our little boys are singing “Let it Go”, I know mine is. This Christmas season we saw Frozen on just about anything you could print it on, and we bought the crap out of it. So, it seems like only a natural transition to make Frozen Fever. We all have the fever.
Released in the U.S. Nov. 27, 2013, “Frozen” posted the No. 1 industry all-time Thanksgiving debut and Walt Disney Animation Studios’ biggest opening ever. So it was no surprise that the film’s Feb. 25 digital debut was the biggest digital release (sell-through) ever; it’s Blu-ray/DVD release on March 18 was No. 1 on the Nielsen overall disc charts for eight nonconsecutive weeks.
The “Frozen” soundtrack is the top-selling album of 2014 to date and spent 33 weeks in the top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart, including 13 weeks at No. 1. It is certified triple Platinum, selling more than 3.6 million units. The “Let It Go” film clip from “Frozen” has been viewed over 370 million times on YouTube. Topping the National Retail Federation’s Hot Holiday Toys survey, “Frozen” product popularity continues to soar: more than 3 million role-play dresses have been sold in North America alone, the “Disney Karaoke: Frozen” app reached No.1 on the iPad Entertainment Downloads category in more than 100 countries, and Random House’s “Frozen: The Junior Novelization” has been on the New York Times best sellers list for 41 weeks. -Walt Disney Motion Pictures
I’m interested to see Frozen Fever after watching this season of Once Upon a Time, Frozen. I think they nailed it on the cast for that partnership so much that it almost seemed as if a cinematic film always existed.
