Hit animated Disney movie Frozen is returning in the form of a digital video series that was created at home. Disney Animation teased the new series in a tweet on Monday, explaining that it was created by Olaf animator Hyrum Osmond with help from others while quarantined at home. As expected, the voice audio for the new short series was also recorded from home.
The original Frozen movie released in 2013 was a massive hit for Disney, which has since made multiple short films related to the property, as well as a sing-along, a collection of tales called Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, and, of course, the relatively new Frozen 2 sequel.
In a tweet on Monday, Disney Animation said that it has a new original series revolving around the snowman character Olaf created by Hyrum Osmond. Josh Gad voiced the character from home, something he offered a sneak peek of on his personal Twitter account.
The short video series comes from Disney Animation Studios; it’s unclear how it plans to distribute the digital series, though it’s likely safe to assume that it will be made available exclusively through the Disney Plus streaming service where both of the Frozen theatrical movies can be found. The series will be available starting this week, according to Disney.
Disney Plus is the destination for most of the content owned by Disney, including its back catalog of movies and TV shows, new originals, documentaries, and more. The service costs $6.99/month on its own — there aren’t any commercials on the service. You also have the option of paying $12.99/month to get Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ together as a bundle, which works out to be cheaper than paying for each service individually.
