Disney Reveals Next Three Animated Shorts

The next three animated shorts from Disney will star the characters of “Frozen,” a puppy and singing volcano.

Frozen Fever,” announced Tuesday in a special on ABC about the making of the blockbuster toon, will revolve around Anna’s birthday and the complications that ensue when Elsa’s icy powers get in the way of throwing a celebration. The short, which will reunite “Frozen” directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, as well as songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, will debut in Spring 2015.

Next summer, Pixar Animation Studios’ “Lava,” directed by James Ford Murphy, will feature a Hawaiian volcano named Uku who sings a version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and is looking for love. Singer Kuana Torres Kahele provides the volcano’s voice, whose look was inspired in part by Jackie Gleeson, Murphy has said. The short will be attached to Pixar’s “Inside Out,” on June 19, 2015.

Meanwhile, “Feast” will focus on a Boston terrier puppy named Winston and his relationship with his owner over 12 years as the two discreetly share meals under the table. The short, directed by Patrick Osborne (“Paperman”), will play in front of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Big Hero 6,” out Nov. 7.
