New Olaf Short is Coming to Disney+

A new animated short based on Olaf is coming to Disney+ on October 23. Once Upon a Snowman will explore what happened to Olaf within the moments after Elsa created him as she was “letting it go,” when Anna and Kristoff first meet him in the forest and more.

The all-new Walt Disney Animation Studios animated short follows Olaf’s first steps as he comes to life and searches for his identity in the snowy mountains outside Arendelle.

The short 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.

“This is an idea that started to form when I was an animator on the first Frozen,” said director Trent Correy.” “Dan Abraham and I are so grateful and excited to have had the opportunity to direct this short, working with our incredible colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios.”
