Trivia

The film was originally announced as a television special that was to be aired on ABC. It wasn't until halfway through production when the filmmakers and the Disney executives deemed the project "too cinematic" for television, so they decided to release it in theaters worldwide. Impressed with its eye-popping animation and emphasis on family and tradition, the Disney executives decided to release the short film with the theatrical release of Walt Disney Pictures/Pixar Animation Studios' Coco (2017), as they believed it would be a perfect opener to Coco, which embraces similar thematic territory during Día de los Muertos.

It's really not that bad
26 November 2017 | by theonlyidnameleftSee all my reviews

I believe Olaf's Frozen Adventure would have been a well-reviewed, maybe even beloved, Christmas special, if only it had aired on ABC as originally planned. But since audiences are pretty much forced to watch it with Coco, the special is getting a lot of vitriol.

Personally, I found Olaf's Frozen Adventure to be quite charming. Maybe they could have chopped off five minutes by ditching Kristoff's song and follow-up scene about a troll-related holiday, as it adds nothing to the main plot. Nonetheless, I appreciated the special's message, even if some might find it sappy (but, come on, it's a Christmas special - a saccharine ending is part of the package).

On a final note, I enjoyed the songs apparently much more than most people. Are any of them as good as Let It Go? Of course not, that song was lightning in a bottle, and if you expect a song of that caliber in this or Frozen 2, you're probably going to be disappointed. But the songs are not bad at all, particularly When We're Together, which comes with some spectacular visuals.
