Olaf will turn the forests of Arrendell into his own personal stage so that he and some familiar “Frozen” friends to recreate moments from Disney Animation classics “The Little Mermaid,” “Moana,” “The Lion King,” “Aladdin” and “Tangled in an all-new series of shorts called “Olaf Presents.”
Disney hasn’t been one to shy away from bringing back its classic films through other projects. The biggest one we’ve seen is in “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” where the voices of Disney princesses past and present came together for one huge cameo. But with “Olaf Presents” we get to see these stories interpreted through Olaf. And it’s going to be fun to see how Olaf how he tells some of the films of the Disney animation renaissance and other flicks.
Hopefully, they are willing to take some chances on underrated classics like “Meet the Robinsons” or poke fun at themselves for some of their more questionable efforts. The poster teases some of the more obvious choices like “Aladdin,” “The Little Mermaid, The Lion King,” “Moana” and “Tangled.” I guess we will just have to wait and see what pops up.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for “Olaf Presents.”
In “Olaf Presents,” Olaf steps into the spotlight and goes from snowman to showman as he takes on the roles of producer, actor, costumer and set builder for his unique “retelling” of five favorite Disney animated tales in “Olaf Presents,” a series of new animated shorts from Walt Disney Animation Studios. The charismatic and versatile Olaf demonstrates his theatrical flair, taking on such iconic roles as a mermaid, a genie, a lion king (and most of the parts in between), as he entertains Arendelle with his delightful abbreviated versions of these beloved tales.
Josh Gad returns to voice Olaf with veteran Disney animator Hyrum Osmond directing and Jennifer Newfield producing.
