Straight from Walt Disney Animation Studios comes ONCE UPON A SNOWMAN! The new animated short for Disney+ answers the burning (freezing?) question from the first film: What happened to Olaf within the moments after Elsa created him? Between Elsa “letting it go” and Anna and Kristoff meeting him in the forest there was apparently quite the adventure! Plus, how did Olaf learn to love Summer?
The previously untold origins of Olaf, the innocent and insightful, summer-loving snowman who melted hearts in the Academy Award®-winning 2013 Disney animated feature, FROZEN, and its acclaimed 2019 sequel, are revealed in the all-new Walt Disney Animation Studios animated short, ONCE UPON A SNOWMAN. 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.
