Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios are teaming up this holiday to bring Disney’s newest animated featurette, “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” as it opens with Disney-Pixar’s newest film, “Coco.”
The trailer for the new featurette, released today, will run before Disney-Pixar’s “Cars 3,” which opens on Friday, June 16.
“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 of 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.”
The 21-minute featurette includes four new original songs, as well as the original voice cast and their characters in their return to the big screen, including Olaf (Josh Gad), Elsa (Idina Menzel), Anna (Kristen Bell), and Kristoff (Jonathan Groff).
Directed by the Emmy-winning team of Stevie Wermers-Skelton and Kevin Deters (“Prep & Landing), produced by Oscar winner Roy Conli (“Big Hero 6”), with original songs by Kate Anderson and Elyssa Samsel (“Between the Lines”), “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” will be in theaters beginning Nov. 22.
“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’tw sit for audiences to see the featurette, enjoy their performances, and hear the incredible new songs written by Elyssa and Kate.”
