LOS ANGELES, Calif. - "Frozen" favourites Anna, Elsa, and Olaf are headed back to the big screen in a new short film.

Walt Disney Animation Studios announced Wednesday it plans to show "Frozen Fever" in front of the live-action "Cinderella" that opens in theatres March 13.

The short reunites the Oscar-winning directing team from "Frozen": Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck. It will tell the story of Elsa and Kristoff's attempt to plan a birthday party for Anna.

"Frozen" is the fifth-highest grossing film of all time, with over $1.27 billion worldwide, and it continues to resonate with audiences.

Disney has had massive success with live-action updates of its animated classics, including 2014's "Maleficent." But the promise of a "Frozen" short with "Cinderella" will likely prove to be icing on their fairy tale cake.
