Despite COVID-19 halting production on a ton of films, Disney has still found a way to create content for younger audiences. Disney animator Hyrum Osmond and Josh Gad have teamed up to create new shorts featuring the popular Frozen character Olaf. Unlike most online content from Disney, these shorts are actually being featured for free on YouTube as opposed to their streaming service Disney+.
The shorts are known as At Home With Olaf, and will focus on the lovable snowman doing a few at home activities, all created safely from the comforts of Osmond and Gad’s homes. The first short, Fun With Snow, features Olaf playing with snowballs and it even one of the little snowman from the short Frozen Fever. The short is only about 40 seconds long so it can be assumed that any future cli[s from Osmond and Gad will also being under a minute long.
While it’s unknown how many shorts in total will be made, and how long Osmond and Gad will be making them, they made will serve as a good way to entertain families self quarantining themselves in the mist of the pandemic. It also shows that there still can be home productivity from talented animators and actors to keep us entertained during these harsh times.
