For the second time in forever
Disney releases a sneak peek at its Frozen sequel—yes, you heard us—a short called Frozen Fever.
[video:http://youtu.be/HOxSaP9orhE width:400 autoplay:0]A few months into their happily ever after, Elsa, Kristoff, and Co. try to throw Anna a birthday party. Only problem is . . . (insert pesky ice magic plot device here).
It turns out, when a movie and all its merchandise is minting money well into its second year, Disney can't simply Let It Go. Still, it beats that trippy, ultra-creepy "Anna Giving Birth" app.

Corn rows, buns, elaborate braids and fancy updos hold no terror for this man now. We at momstown are in awe of his fierce skills.
