Obsessed with Frozen? Guess what—you don’t have to let it go. (See what I did there?) Jennifer Lee ’05 is back as writer and co-director with Chris Buck of Frozen 2, after the wildly successful first installation of Frozen took home an Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2014. The firstFrozen was a massive box-office and merchandise hit, making Lee the first female director in history to earn over $1 billion in box-office revenue. Disney officially announced plans to make a sequel to add to franchise.

To garner some hype for the latest installation, Lee and Buck recently made a short film called Frozen Fever, which will play prior to the release of Disney’s live actionCinderella film, which was produced by Simon Kinberg’03 and hits theaters this weekend.
