D23 Expo 2017 – Animation Session – Frozen & Olaf’s Frozen Adventure

This Thanksgiving, Walt Disney Animation is bringing fans Olaf’s Frozen Adventure as the opening short in front of Pixar’s Coco.

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure takes place during the first Christmas after the events of Frozen. For the first time, Anna and Elsa will spend the holidays together and they want to throw a party, but all of the villagers want to go home and be with their family.

Since the sisters have never celebrated Christmas together, Olaf and Swen decide to go into town and research the Christmas traditions of the townsfolk. The short will feature four new songs.

During the session, John Lassiter brings out Kristen Bell to talk about the short and show a clip. Halfway through the clip, the sound goes out and Josh Gad appears to sing Olaf’s song live.

Lassiter also announces that Frozen 2 is in the works and that the original cast will be back and Frozen 2 will not be the final title. The final title will also not be “Thawed” or “Frozen Assets.”

No story details were discussed, but we were shown footage of the animator’s trip to Norway, Iceland, and Finland.
