Frozen returns to Irish screens in November alongside Olaf’s Frozen Adventure


Frozen fans in Ireland will be in for a treat this November. The Disney hit that your kids have enjoyed over and over (and over) again will be returning to cinemas in the winter, with a new short shown in front of the film, putting the spotlight on Olaf, the snowman.

Walt Disney Animation Studios (WDAS) and Pixar Animation Studios are teaming up this winter to offer Frozen fans a fabulous festive treat with the release of mini movie Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.  The brand new instalment in the Frozen franchise will be screened in Irish cinemas in front of the original movie on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of November 2017.

Featuring four new original songs, the 21-minute mini movie welcomes the original cast and characters back to the big screen, including Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), who is on a mission to harness the best festive traditions for Anna (voice of Kristen Bell), Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel) and Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff). Directed by Emmy®-winning filmmakers Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton (“Prep & Landing”), produced by Oscar® winner Roy Conli (“Big Hero 6”), with original songs by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson (“Between the Lines”), Olaf’s Frozen Adventure will be in cinemas for one weekend only on 25th and 26th November 2017.

 

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure celebrates characters who won over audiences worldwide when Frozen first hit the big screen in 2013. Earning more than $1.27 billion globally, the film won two Academy Awards® (best animated film and best original song with “Let It Go”) and a Golden Globe® (best animated feature film). Slated for November 2019, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ untitled feature-length follow-up to the hit film reunites filmmakers Jennifer Lee, Chris Buck and Peter Del Vecho with the Grammy®- and Oscar®-winning songwriting duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.

Olaf teams up with Sven on a merry mission in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 21-minute mini movie Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. It’s the first festive season since the gates reopened and Anna and Elsa host a celebration for all of Arendelle. When the townspeople unexpectedly leave early to enjoy their individual festive customs, the sisters realize they have no family traditions of their own. So, Olaf sets out to comb the kingdom to bring home the best traditions and save this first Christmas for his friends.

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure will be screened alongside Frozen in Irish cinemas on 25th & 26th November 2017. Film In Dublin will keep you up to date with ticket and location info as we get it.
