The second Frozen film features an even catchier song than Let It Go

At the beginning of February the film's director Jennifer Lee revealed that Elsa comes down with a cold in the animated short, telling USA Today that "surprising things occur that wreak a little havoc".

Co-director Chris Buck added: "It's another side of Elsa the audience hasn't seen before and we hadn't really played with in the original feature."

The mini-sequel will feature a new song that is set to be even catchier than Let it Go, which won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2014. The song's co-writers, husband-and-wife team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, also worked together on the new track.

Frozen Fever will air before Disney's Cinderella at cinemas

"If history is any indicator, kids will go nuts," said director Chris.

The original cast, including Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell and Josh Gad, are all reprising their roles for the short film.

It is not yet known whether bosses have decided to create a full-length feature, but the mini clip will air in UK cinemas from 3 April, ahead of Disney's Cinderella, and from 13 March Stateside.

Frozen, which was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale The Snow Queen, drew love and admiration from both children and adults when it was released in winter 2013. The film accumulated nearly £863 million in worldwide box office revenue, making it the highest-grossing animated film of all time. It also gained a second Oscar for Best Animated Feature.
