Frozen became a blockbuster hit among not only children, but parents as well. One of the most beloved characters in the series, was the snowman, Olaf. Well, Olaf is taking the spotlight all for himself this holiday season as he retells Disney movies in an upcoming Disney+ shorts series, Olaf Presents.
In the series, Olaf, voiced by Josh Gad, will recant Disney stories in his very own special way. Want to know what to expect from the upcoming animation shorts? Check out a brief synopsis below.
Olaf steps into the spotlight and goes from snowman to showman as he takes on the roles of producer, actor, costumer and set builder for his unique “retelling” of five favorite Disney animated tales in “Olaf Presents,” a series of new animated shorts from Walt Disney Animation Studios. The charismatic and versatile Olaf demonstrates his theatrical flair, taking on such iconic roles as a mermaid, a genie, a lion king (and most of the parts in between), as he entertains Arendelle with his delightful abbreviated versions of these beloved tales.
Among the movies that Olaf will retell in his own special way include: The Little Mermaid, Tangled, The Lion King, Aladdin and Moana.
According to Collider.com, these shorts will serve as follow-ups to a number of Olaf-centric projects from Walt Disney Animation Studios. If you remember, Once Upon a Snowman, which premiered on Disney+ last year, follows the “untold origins” of what the snowman was up to before he met Anna (Kristen Bell) and Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) in Frozen. in addition to Once Upon a Snowman, there were a series of At Home With Olaf shorts produced remotely by Osmond and his team for YouTube, after the COVID-19 pandemic shut animation studios down in 2020.
All episodes of Olaf Presents will debut on Disney+ Day on Friday, November 12th.
