What Does Josh Gad Want Audience To Take Away From OLAF’S FROZEN ADVENTURE?

Are you excited about Olaf Frozen Adventure? If not, you should be. I had the privilege of catching a sneak peek of the Featurette at Disney Animation Studios! It’s definitely not to be missed. See, that’s me concentrating EXTRA hard to draw Olaf correctly.

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure’s overarching theme is “Family and Traditions.” After Anna and Elsa realize they do not have family traditions of their own, Olaf takes off with Sven to scour the kingdom and bring traditions home to the sisters.

OLD TRADITIONS – In Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” Anna and Elsa realize that they have no traditions of their own—or do they?

While chatting with Josh Gad during this special screening of the featurette, the actor expressed what he hopes families and children will take from the film.

“Holidays in general have become really commercialized, right? It’s, there’s a lot about Holidays now where you gotta go shopping, we gotta go do this, we gotta go do that. This movie is, I think, I hope, an emotional reminder about the bond of family. And, this moment, this one moment out of every year that we sort of can’t go anywhere because everything is closed and we’re all in a room together and we all have none of this (points at phone), but this (looking at faces) that to me is the power of Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. It is about traditions, but more than that it’s about family and I love that. And I hope that my girls, when they see this movie, they start to think about the traditions they want to make with each other, right? I think that that’s the beauty of it.”
