Disney•Pixar just released the official trailer for Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, a short film that will play in front of Coco. The 21 minute film will premiere on November 22, 2017 and features the voices of Josh Gad as Olaf, Kristen Bell as Anna, Idina Menzel as Elsa, and Jonathan Groff as Kristoff. Emmy winners Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton (Prep & Landing) directed the short which includes four new original songs by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson (Between the Lines).
“I’m thrilled that Disney Animation’s featurette Olaf’s Frozen Adventure will be coming to theaters in November with Pixar’s Coco,” said Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter. “It’s a perfect pairing – they’re both beautiful, heartfelt films about families and how people carry traditions forward. I can’t wait for audiences to get to see both of these terrific projects together on the big screen.”
“Stevie and I were deeply honored to be entrusted by John [Lasseter] to create an all-new story with these characters we love,” said Deters. “We’re thrilled to have our film play on the big screen with ‘Coco’ during the holidays.”
“We loved getting in the recording booth with these incredible actors who know their characters inside and out,” added Wermers-Skelton. “We can’t wait for audiences to see the featurette, enjoy their performances, and hear the incredible new songs written by Elyssa and Kate.”
The Plot: Olaf (Gad) teams up with Sven on a merry mission in Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. It’s the first holiday season since the gates reopened and Anna (Bell) and Elsa (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.
