This original short premiered in front of the movie COCO, and I was not able to see it because it was not shown at the previews for the movie! I was sad until now, I get to see it next week!
“Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” makes its broadcast television debut as part of Disney|ABC Television Group’s “25 Days of Christmas” celebration on THURSDAY, DEC. 14 (8:00-8:30 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network. The airing, first announced during production in early 2016, follows “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure”’s recently completed limited theatrical run in front of Disney•Pixar’s hit feature “Coco.” The featurette includes four new original songs and welcomes back the beloved characters (and cast) who won over audiences worldwide in the 2013 Oscar®-winning feature, “Frozen,” the top-grossing animated film of all time. Disney Animation’s Emmy Award-winning holiday special “Prep & Landing” airs 8:30-9:00 p.m. EST.
In “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” Olaf (voice of Josh Gad) teams up with Sven on a merry mission. It’s the first holiday season since the gates reopened and Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) and Elsa (voice of Idina 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 Anna and Elsa’s “first Christmas in forever.”
My buddy Josh Gad is back!
Academy Award®-winning producer Roy Conli (“Big Hero 6”) says: “We are thrilled to be part of ABC’s ‘25 Days of Christmas’ festivities. While making the film, our crew was so inspired by all of the great television holiday specials of the past. It’s a dream come true for all of us.”
And congrats again to my buddy Roy Conli:
