Review: Once Upon a Snowman on Disney Plus

Everyone knows that he likes warm hugs, but few know the whole story about Olaf’s first moments—until now! “Once Upon a Snowman” is available to stream exclusively on Disney+.

The previously untold origins of the innocent and insightful, summer-loving snowman who melted hearts in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 2013 Academy Award®-winning “Frozen,” and its acclaimed 2019 follow-up, “Frozen 2,” are revealed in the all-new animated short.

Once Upon a Snowman Review

The film follows Olaf’s first steps as he comes to life and searches for his identity in the snowy mountains outside Arendelle. This movie short is essentially what happens to Olaf while Elsa is in the middle of singing “Let It Go” in the first movie.

It’s adorable and like many other Disney shorts adds a bit more detail to the Frozen timeline. For example, Olaf had a mini adventure right after he was created by Elsa! When she throws off her cape in the song, it accidentally hits Olaf and he tumbles down the mountain. He visits Oaken’s shop and the two chat before he heads out and spots Anna and Kristoff. Short and sweet, add Once Upon a Snowman to your holiday viewings on Disney+!

“Once Upon a Snowman” is directed by Trent Correy (animation supervisor, “Olaf” in “Frozen 2”) and Dan Abraham (veteran story artist who boarded Olaf’s “When I Am Older” musical sequence in “Frozen 2”) and produced by Nicole Hearon (associate producer “Frozen 2” and “Moana”) with Peter Del Vecho (producer, “Frozen 2,” “Frozen” and the upcoming “Raya and the Last Dragon”). Olaf is voiced by award-winning actor Josh Gad. 

“Once Upon a Snowman” is available to stream now, exclusively on Disney+.
