The director explains why the unpopular "Frozen" short was paired with a Pixar film in the first place.
"Olaf's Frozen Adventure," an animated short that opens this week, follows the eponymous snowman (voiced by Josh Gad) on a journey around Arendelle to explore holiday traditions on behalf of royal sisters Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristen Bell).
Here you can get a first look at four of the most festive moments from the film, which follows the wise-cracking snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) on a fact-finding mission to discover holiday traditions for his friends Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) after the newly reunited royals realize they don’t have any. Anna, Elsa, and Olaf try to discover the holiday spirit.
Disney has released the first musical snippets from the upcoming Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, featuring the likes of Olaf (Josh Gad), Elsa (Idina Menzel), Anna (Kristen Bell), and Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) belting out holiday-themed tunes from the animated featurette. Olaf’s Frozen Adventure finds the goofy snowman and his trusty reindeer steed Sven on a mission across the kingdom after Elsa and Anna realize Arendelle is lacking in holiday traditions.
To accompany "Olaf's Frozen Adventure," a 21-minute holiday-themed featurette set to open on Nov. 22 in front of Disney-Pixar's "Coco," there will be an avalanche of tie-in toys, books, clothes, and assorted knickknacks.

While Star Wars: The Force Awakens continues its assault on box-office records, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, and their First Order stormtrooper stooges will be invading Pasadena, California, on New Year’s Day as part of Disneyland’s entry in the 127th annual Rose Parade. This marks the first appearance by a Star Wars-themed float at the iconic parade since 2007, when George Lucas was the grand marshal leading a battalion of dancing stormtroopers, an Imperial marching band, hundreds of costumed characters, and an Endor float with Ewoks swinging in the branches. Star Wars Land and a Frozen ice castle populated by Olaf, Elsa, and Anna flank the centerpiece Sleeping Beauty Castle, where such characters as Mickie, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy will wave to the crowd.

The good people of Buffalo are well accustomed to wintry snowfall, but last week’s lake-effect shellacking was extreme even for Western New York standards, with a record eight feet falling in some areas. Visit Buffalo Niagara enlisted local singer Michele Marie Roberts to sing and record the latest in a seemingly endless line of Frozen parodies, but one that feels entirely warranted. "People who aren’t from Buffalo have this notion that when it snows we are all trapped in our houses," Roberts tells Yahoo Movies. "And while it was certainly the case for a few days this week, there is so much more to us than snow (and chicken wings). We have outdoor skating rinks, winter festivals, great skiing just an hour from here and amazing people. People came out of the woodwork to help neighbors, friends, strangers with everything from getting them their medications to digging out their cars. So I think we embrace our snow reputation like champs." After recording the parody (written by Karen Healy), Roberts and a film crew headed by John Paget took to the streets to shoot the accompanying video.
