Once Upon a Snowman follows the cheerful scene stealer’s first steps as he comes to life and searches for his identity in the snowy mountains outside Arendelle. The short is expected to fill in gap between the moments after Elsa created to 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 said in a statement. ”[Co-director] 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.”

co-director Dan Abraham added, “Josh Gad gives one of the great animated voice performances as Olaf through the Frozen films. To have the opportunity to work with him in the recording booth was such a privilege and career highlight.”

The animated short is directed by Trent Correy and Dan Abraham, who both worked on Olaf’s animation in Frozen 2. It is produced by Nicole Hearon and Peter Del Vecho.
