The adorable Olaf is coming back to theaters, but fans won't have to wait until Frozen 2 to see him in action.
Olaf will be the star of his own short film called Olaf's Frozen Adventure, which will air before theater presentations of their upcoming Pixar project Coco. The new project will feature Olaf as he attempts to seek out and capture the best holiday traditions from all over the world for Anna and Elsa.
"I'm thrilled that Disney Animation's featurette 'Olaf's Frozen Adventure' will be coming to theaters in November with Pixar's 'Coco,'" said John Lasseter, chief creative officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. "It's a perfect pairing – they're both beautiful, heartfelt films about families and how people carry traditions forward. I can't wait for audiences to get to see both of these terrific projects together on the big screen."
Olaf's Frozen Adventure will feature the vocal talents of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, and of course Josh Gad, will also include four new original songs. Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton will direct, while Roy Conli will produce. The original tracks are created by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson.
"Stevie and I were deeply honored to be entrusted by John [Lasseter] to create an all-new story with these characters we love," said Deters. "We're thrilled to have our film play on the big screen with 'Coco' during the holidays."
"We loved getting in the recording booth with these incredible actors who know their characters inside and out," added Wermers-Skelton. "We can't wait for audiences to see the featurette, enjoy their performances, and hear the incredible new songs written by Elyssa and Kate."
Olaf's Frozen Adventure will air before Coco starting on November 22, 2017, and fans can see a new trailer for it in front of Cars 2, which hits this Friday. You can watch the trailer for Olaf's Frozen Adventure above.
