Disney Short Films Collection coming to DVD this summer

"Frozen Fever" will headline a collection of beloved, award-winning — and, in some cases, obscure — short films by Disney to be released on DVD later this summer.

The Short Films Collection includes a dozen titles, each with an introduction by the filmmakers. It will be available Aug. 11 on Disney Movies Anywhere's digital cloud service, and will arrive on DVD Aug. 18. It's available now for pre-order on Amazon.com for $33.29. 

Short films in the collection include the new favorite "Frozen Fever," as well as recent Oscar-winners "Feast" and "Paperman," and the 2013 "Get a Horse!," which features the voice of Walt Disney himself as Mickey Mouse.
