“We realized we wanted Olaf to remain pure, so quickly it evolved into these fun little snowballs we call ‘snowgies’ that bring a lot of mischief and fun to the short.”For more juicy deets, the team revealed that the short was originally supposed to center around Olaf. But, Frozen co-director Jennifer Lee had the idea of Elsa getting a magical cold. Soon, the story evolved into a birthday celebration for Anna, and Elsa’s attempts to make it perfect while also handling a cold. Frozen co-director Chris Buck explains:
“We could see some different opportunities for some fun and that just got all of us going…Elsa’s never really been able to throw a party for Anna. They were apart most of their growing up.”Frozen Fever reunites most of the original cast of Frozen: Kristen Bell as Anna, Idina Menzel as Elsa, Josh Gad as Olaf, and Jonathan Groff as Kristoff. Featuring a new song by original composers Robert and Kristen-Anderson Lopez, the short hits theaters alongside Cinderella this Friday.
Will you see Frozen Fever and Cinderella? What do you think of Elsa’s “snowgies”?
