  • Frozen Fever receives a frosty reception despite its springtime warmth. Elsa plans on giving Anna a birthday party but starts showing symptoms of a cold. Suffice to say, this short is just a glorified music video. It doesn't further any character development, provides minimal humour and lacks any real significance. Still, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tapping my feet to the newly sung "Making Today a Perfect Day". The Lopez' were able to, yet again, write another catchy song that I'll be singing every day for the next week. It's warm, melodic and accessible for younger audiences. The animation is consistent to the feature film and retains its gorgeously fluid aesthetics. Plus, Olaf is in it. Yay. My life is complete once more.

    Oh, and Elsa suffers from a cold despite "the cold not bothering her anyway" which somehow summons a horde of miniature snow marshmallows ("Snowgies" apparently) that could, oh I don't know, be used to sell more toys for Disney perhaps? It's spring, the sun is beating down on Arendelle and these small clumps of ice crystals don't melt. Are they demonic? A metaphor for the plague!? I wish. Elsa apparently has a cold but looks and acts drunk. Kristoff and Sven make an appearance, as does Hans and the giant snow demon-thing Marshmallow, because y'know...they were in the feature film. What can I say? It's fine and children will weep at the sight of Olaf again. However this is one fever that I probably wouldn't want to experience again.
