Ahead of Disney + Day, Disney shared a new trailer for an upcoming series of animated shorts. Olaf presents stars Josh Gad as the living snowman who rose to fame when he first stepped off the ice in 2013 Frozen. Now, Olaf expands his abilities to include that of a producer, actor and set builder as he stages iconic moments from five Disney classics.
Watch the trailer below, which gives us a taste of Olaf’s transformational abilities:
The shorts follow the iconic snowman-turned-showman as he creates a unique ‘tale’ of The Lion King, Tangled, Aladdin, The little Mermaid, and Moana. According to the official Disney + synopsis, “the charismatic and versatile Olaf demonstrates his theatrical flair, taking on iconic roles like a mermaid, genie, lion king (and most in-between roles), as he entertains Arendelle with his delicious abridged versions of these beloved tales.
Olaf has already starred in two different animated shorts on Disney + – Olaf’s Frozen Adventure and He was a snowman. The latter is a kind of origin story, giving us some information on the whereabouts of Olaf between the moment of his creation and his reunion with Anna in Frozen. The outspoken, inquisitive, and often naive character has become a favorite among children and adults alike, taking off in a way other Disney cronies haven’t.
Olaf presents will debut on the platform on November 12, during Disney + Day. We’ll also have a new Pixar short titled Ciao Alberto, which presents the characters of Luca. If you haven’t yet subscribed to Disney +, you can sign up here.
