Disney has dropped a trailer for a Frozen-themed short film that will air in theaters before new Pixar animated feature Coco.


Pixar’s Coco will drop this Thanksgiving, and will open, as most Disney-Pixar films do, with a short film. This one, however, is a whopping 21-minute story focusing on Frozen‘s snowman Olaf.

The purpose of the short, called Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, seems to be twofold. One, to get people to the theater to see Coco, and two, to keep fans interested in Frozen. The sequel to the popular Disney flick is expected out in Nov. 2019.

The voices of Kristen BellIdina MenzelJonathan Groff, and Josh Gad will all be returning in the short. Just like the five-minute opener Frozen Fever gained momentum for Cinderella in 2015, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure will do the same for its namesake. It will also feature four new songs by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson.

In the short, Olaf teams up with Sven on a mission to bring the best holiday traditions home to Anna and Elsa, who are all alone when the townsfolk leave Arendelle early to celebrate their individual holiday customs. The animation is directed by Emmy winners Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton, and is produced by Oscar winner Roy Conli. Screenplay by Jac Schaeffer.

Coco opens in theaters Nov. 22, 2017.
