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.
