Everyone’s favorite snowman is hitting the big screen once again in Frozen Fever. Walt Disney Animation Studios announced on Tuesday that a new Frozen animated short will be released next spring. Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, the directors of the Academy-Award winning film, have a massive crowd to please. The film made $1.27 billion dollars, making it the most successful animated film of all time, as well as the fifth highest grossing movie ever. According to the statement that was released, Walt Disney Animation Studios have a pretty simple plot planned for the animated short.

“It’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk,” the studio said.

Disney has confirmed that the snow-made sidekick Olaf will return, but has yet to confirm whether Kristen Bell (voice of Anna), Idina Menzel (voice of Elsa), Jonathan Groff (voice of Kristoff), and Josh Gad (voice of Olaf) will return to reprise their roles.

Frozen fans can also expect a new original song by Oscar-winning songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the dynamic duo that penned the all-too catchy tunes “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and “Let It Go.”

But, for those who just can’t wait until next year, a sing-along version of the family-friendly blockbuster is set to hit the shelves in November. Fans can also get their fix when the Frozen characters appear in live action form on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” set to return on Sunday September 28. The question is, will the world want to build another snowman, or just let it go?
