Tuesday, on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Josh Gad, who voices adorable snowman Olaf in Disney’s “Frozen” franchise announced a new animated short and Olaf-led educational videos.
The short called “Once Upon a Snowman,” follows Olaf and his untold origins after being created by Elsa and searching for his identity. It will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on Oct. 23.
“This is an idea that started to form when I was an animator on the first Frozen,” “Once Upon a Snowman” co-director Trent Correy said in a statement. ”Dan Abraham and I are so grateful and excited to have had the opportunity to direct this short, working with our incredible colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios.” Take a look at the clip below:
The fun doesn’t stop there! Olaf is also helping kids (and parents) with the challenges of remote learning, Gad announced. Disney is introducing “Olaf’s Learning Adventures,” a series of fun and educational tutoring videos led by Olaf, in topics ranging from science to grammar to math.
