Frozen was a huge international hit and went on to win two Oscars

The follow-up to the hit film Frozen will be screened as a warm up to Disney's new movie, Cinderella, when it's released in March 2015.

Frozen Fever will not be a full length feature film but will include characters Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf the snowman.

The plot will see Elsa's icy powers threaten to ruin Anna's birthday party.

Disney say the follow-up will be shown in cinemas before the "live action" version of Cinderella starts.
