The synopsis also promises to answer the following questions: ‘What happened to Olaf within the moments after Elsa created him as she was “letting it go” and building her ice palace, and when Anna and Kristoff first meet him in the forest?’  

‘This is an idea that started to form when I was an animator on the first Frozen,’ OUAS co-director Trent Correy revealed in a statement. 

He continued: ‘Dan Abraham and I are so grateful and excited to have had the opportunity to direct this short, working with our incredible colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios.’
