Due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis keeping everyone at home, nearly every TV and film production out there has been shut down for the time being. However, that hasn't stopped one Disney animator and one beloved voice actor from teaming up for a new web series that they can make from home. On Monday morning, Disney Animation announced the new short series At Home With Olaf, which features various silly adventures with Frozen's most popular snowman.
At Home With Olaf is a new project created by Disney animator Hyrum Osmond, with Josh Gad once again serving as the voice of the popular character. Osmond was the Olaf animator for the first Frozen film before becoming the head of animation on Moana. Both Osmond and Gad worked on the project from their own homes. You can watch the first short in the series below!
