Disney’s Frozen Fever and Cinderella Combined – Opens March 13

A few months ago Disney announced the return of the Frozen characters, but in an animated short called Frozen Fever. This short will bring back to the screen all the fan favs: Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf. It just so happens that this short will play in front of Cinderella when it premieres on March 13. The Cinderella release is a live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale that originated as a Disney animated masterpiece in 1950.


Of course, Disney never does anything half-way. The images and clips being released for this film are nothing short of breathtaking. Just look at the exquisite detail that has gone into the carriage that takes Cinderella to the ball?


True to the original story of “Cinderella”, this movie features Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Ella, in her eagerness to support her father, welcomes her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera). However, when Ella’s father passes away unexpectedly, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. She is quickly related to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, hence the spiteful name of Cinderella.

Despite the disdainful situation, Ella still tries to honor her mother’s dying words to “have courage and be kind.” (I give her a lot of credit, given the situation!) She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her.


It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and – armed with a pumpkin and a few mice – changes Cinderella’s life forever.


Ahhhh, the Prince! Her kindred soul.


So remember when you go to see Cinderella on March 13th, you will also see Frozen Fever. This also works the other way. Plan to see Frozen Fever and you will get to watch Cinderella right after the Frozen short film!


Are you as excited as I am for March 13, 2015? I cannot wait for these two amazing shows to appear in one sitting!
