If you were worried that Disney didn’t have a way to squeeze a few more bucks out of the Frozen license before the sequel hits in 2019, don’t worry. Olaf’s Frozen Adventure is here! The 21 minute short is set to premier alongside the upcoming Pixar release, Coco and sadly doesn’t seem to have the tiny snow penises that made Frozen Ever After so much fun!
In the new short, Olaf goes on a hunt for new holiday traditions for Anna and Elsa to incorporate into their lives. Along the way, he scares kids away from the idea of Christmas trees and craps out a fruit cake. You know… Fun for one and all!
Olaf (voice of Josh Gad) teams up with Sven on a merry mission in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 21-minute featurette “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.” It’s the first holiday season since the gates reopened and Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) and Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel) host a celebration for all of Arendelle. When the townspeople unexpectedly leave early to enjoy their individual holiday customs, the sisters realize they have no family traditions of their own. So, Olaf sets out to comb the kingdom to bring home the best traditions and save this first Christmas for his friends. Directed by Emmy®-winning filmmakers Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton (“Prep & Landing”), produced by Oscar® winner Roy Conli (“Big Hero 6”), and featuring a screenplay by Jac Schaeffer and four original songs by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson, “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” opens in front of Disney•Pixar’s original feature “Coco” in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.
