A brand new trailer for Olaf’s spin-off adventure has been dropped and it looks fantastic. The short film, Once Upon A Snowman, will take us back to the events of Frozen just moments after Elsa makes Olaf during her big musical number.
You’d assume that after Olaf was animated, he just wondered aimlessly until he bumped into Anna, Kristoff and Sven. However, this is Olaf we’re dealing with and it looks as though he pops up at key moments- At Oaken’s Sauna. We’re in for quite an adventure with guaranteed laughs along the way.
“Josh Gad gives one of the great animated voice performances as Olaf through the ‘Frozen’ films,” said director Dan Abraham. “To have the opportunity to work with him in the recording booth was such a privilege and career highlight.”
Check out the trailer below!
Here is the full synopsis from Disney:
What happened to Olaf within the moments after Elsa created him as she was “letting it go” and building her ice palace, and when Anna and Kristoff first meet him in the forest? And how did Olaf learn to love Summer? The previously untold origins of Olaf are revealed in the all-new Walt Disney Animation Studios animated short.
The film follows Olaf’s first steps as he comes to life and searches for his identity in the snowy mountains outside Arendelle. Once Upon a Snowman is directed by Trent Correy (animation supervisor, “Olaf” in Frozen 2) and Dan Abraham (veteran story artist who boarded Olaf’s “When I Am Older” musical sequence in Frozen 2) and produced by Nicole Hearon (associate producer “Frozen 2” and “Moana”) with Peter Del Vecho (producer, “Frozen 2,” “Frozen” and the upcoming “Raya and the Last Dragon”). Olaf is voiced by award-winning actor Josh Gad.
Whenever Olaf is mentioned laughter and smiles follow. He is the fun and heart of Frozen and we think something like this is exactly what fans need right now. Are you excited to follow Olaf in this upcoming short film? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
