Made for the sake of cashing in on whatever is left of the "Frozen" craze

The original film "Frozen" was a pretty good animated musical from Disney that got so much popularity, you couldn't walk anywhere without hearing that godforsaken song "Let It Go" at some point. Even 2 years after the film's release, people are still singing the damn thing or playing it on their mobile devices. "Good GOD!", I shouted when I couldn't stand that song anymore. But this review isn't about the movie or that song. This is about the animated 7-minute short film that was released in 2015, preceding Kenneth Branagh's live-action re-telling of "Cinderella" (which was okay), simply called "Frozen Fever".

Today is Anna's (Kristen Bell) birthday, and Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) want to make her party a special one that she'll never forget. How? Leading her on a scavenger hunt. There's just one problem: Elsa has a cold (no pun intended...honest), and she spontaneously creates small snowmen every time she sneezes, and all of 'em have a mind of their own.

So as I've said, the original film was pretty good for what it was, with great CGI animation, decent songs, and, seeing as how this is Disney, a predictable, yet enjoyable story for the most part, with no cliffhanger whatsoever. The film became a modern-day example of a box office smash, with merchandise coming out the wah-zoo. The short film...meh. Granted, the animation is just as good as what we've seen in the original movie, but we've seen much better short films coming from the Disney studio in this decade story-wise, and feels more like a cheap cash-in, despite only being 7 minutes long. In other words, this was just a way to say that "Frozen" is still a thing. Hell, there were even news reports about how kids who are fans of the movie were pumped to see this as if this was supposed to be "Frozen 2". Oh, and I should mention, that seeing as how this is a follow up to a 2013 musical, most of the short is basically one whole musical number...which has the habit of referencing the names of the songs from the original movie, including the one that became the godforsaken tumor in everyone's brain.

Honestly, this would be something that should've been a straight-to-DVD or Blu-Ray special feature instead of being released into theatres. For a short film, though, it isn't bad, but it isn't good either. This falls under the mediocre category for me and a one-and-done thing. I most likely won't be seeing this again anytime soon, and I hope Disney doesn't start making these for theatres on a daily basis.

Doesn't make sense

OK so I LOVED Frozen, that is a great movie but why does this short even exist? To make money? That's the only reason I can think of...

I mean the first Frozen is about Elsa having these magical ice-powers and at one point she decides to build an ice-castle where she then lives. This means she is completely fine being around ice right? And then in this short, she gets a fever! How can one who is perfectly fine with ice get a fever? Simple answer: She doesn't! It just doesn't make any sense.

Oh it's also about a birthday party for either Anna or Elsa, I totally forgot because it's completely forgettable. So all in all, watch Frozen if you haven't already and don't watch this. Just wait for Frozen 2, that should be good!

As good as Frozen and better than the live action Cinderella

I first saw this film when I rented it on Amazon Video since I didn't get the chance to see it in the cinema when it was shown before the live action Cinderella (which wasn't as good as the original cartoon version but had a great cast) and as a fan of Frozen I really enjoyed this one so I purchased it on Amazon Video for subsequent viewings.

While the song Making Today a Perfect Day takes up most of the film's running time and I didn't think much of it when I first listened to it on YouTube due to a similar line to one in Let It Go, it got better when I watched the film and it is very catchy. The story is not a rehash of that in the feature film because the relationship between Anna and Elsa significantly develops. The animation in this film is on par with that in the feature film as are the roles of Olaf, Sven and Kristoff while the simple story of Elsa worrying about ruining Anna's birthday with her cold has several moments that made me laugh, likewise with Tangled Ever After, and I liked the cameos from Prince Hans, Marshmallow and Oaken. The voice cast was also as good as they were in the feature film. In addition the snowgies that form whenever Elsa sneezes are adorable and the springtime dresses she and Anna wear are absolutely beautiful.

All in all just as good as the feature film with its song, animation, humour and the developing relationship between Elsa and Anna being the aspects that stand out the most. 8.5/10.
