Heartwarming / Frozen Fever

Go To
Anna: "Best birthday present ever."
Elsa: "Which one?"
Anna: "You letting me take care of you."

The whole short is just full of heartwarming moments despite its 7 minute runtime.

  • It's really nice how casually Elsa uses her ice powers in this short. And the townspeople react to the little snow golems with nothing worse than bemused curiosity. It's safe to say everyone is okay with the queen's magic.
  • More interactions between the sisters as that (sisters), rather than a young queen and her sister-heir, which was seen at the ball in the original movie.
  • Elsa waking up Anna in a matter almost similar to how Anna would wake up Elsa when they were kids.
    • When Elsa tells a still half-asleep Anna "Happy Birthday", Anna's first answer is to sleepily sing " you".
  • The family portrait with Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf. Elsa is cradling Olaf like he's a baby and holding Anna's hands.
  • Kristoff and Elsa working together to give Anna a happy birthday.
  • Elsa trying to do her best to celebrate Anna's birthday, even as the cold begins to affect her strength.
    • Anna's concern of Elsa's health, and saving Elsa from nearly falling off the clock tower.

  • At the end, Anna says that taking care of her sister while she is sick is the best birthday present.
  • Kristoff singing to Anna during the party, showing his love for her and how it has changed him.
    • Also, Anna's reaction to him saying (or singing) "I love you baby". It's a Blink-and-You-Miss-It moment but she definitely likes what she hears.
    • Followed by another Blink-and-You-Miss-It moment: Kristoff's reaction to his own line, a moment later, is to remark to himself, "I do."
  • Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven bringing the snowgies to live with Marshmallow. Considering he was probably all by himself after the end of the film, he now has company in the snow castle.
    • There's also a bit of fridge heartwarming somewhere there; remember that the last time we see Marshmallow interacting with anybody else at all (Anna, Kristoff, Hans, the Arendelle soldiers), he's being strictly hostile. Here, sure, he may be more dumbfounded upon seeing the snowgies than anything, but he's hospitable enough to Kristoff, Sven and Olaf (and the snowgies), not to mention that Kristoff goes up the mountain without Elsa or Anna (the former is probably the only person who can rein Marshmallow). It can be surmised that some time between the end of the film and this one, the three went up the ice castle and now they are friends.

  • This post perfectly describing Anna's feelings.
  • It is pretty sweet how Olaf refers to the snowgies as "little brothers" and even comes up with names for all of them.
  • How about Oaken giving Anna and Elsa the cold remedy for free. It's the thought that counts and all, but he was perfectly willing to give them something for free; likely because it was Anna's birthday and because his queen was sick, so it shows that he's loyal to the two royal sisters and still willing to give a helping hand.
  • And really, the fact that all of Arendelle was in on Elsa's plans. It shows that, not only are the people of Arendelle accepting of Elsa and her powers, it shows how much the two sisters impacted the city and likely the citizens all love their queen and princess.
