Olaf’s first steps as he comes to life and searches for his identity in the snowy mountains outside Arendelle.
Our short opens with Elsa singing ‘Let it Go,’ and she spins around and knocks Olaf down a hill, and now he is lost, and ‘come alive.’ We transition with him going around, trying to figure out who he is.
Next, in our brief time with Olaf, he finds a cabin where he gets himself a new nose, but what comes next is unexpected.
Last, Olaf discovers himself yet again stemming from a moment in which he provided a selfless, caring act.
The world of Frozen is brought to life, even for just a quick moment, and it provides a little moment for kids to learn that sharing can go a long way. It was also a quick reminder that Josh Gad is perfect for Olaf, and I hope that we get a film centered around just him one day.
