Olaf’s Frozen Adventure is one of those movies that everyone can understand. The plot is easy to follow, and we found the dialogue and music engaging. The storyline flows without becoming overly saccharine. In fact, it offers a right balance between the humor and action scenes. Unlike Frozen, this one focuses mostly on Olaf and the life lessons he learns during his quest to find authentic family traditions.

After the screening, we had a Q&A with Q&A with Josh Gad (voice of “Olaf”), Directors Stevie Wermers-Skelton & Kevin Deters and Producer Roy Conli

As a skilled comedian, Josh Gad adds depth and humanity to his character. In fact, he is so adorable you forget that he is not a person but a snowman. Olaf’s charming personality will make you laugh, tear up and definitely steal your heart.

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure Wholesome Message

As a Disney movie, it not only is heartwarming but also comes with an important message.

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure is all about family ties and the holiday traditions. As the sisters discover, most of Arendelle’s citizens are proud of their family traditions and can’t wait for the holidays.

The film aims to remind viewers that old family traditions should not be abandoned but cherished. Whether it is knitting gifts, baking cookies or decorating Christmas trees- holiday traditions help bring families together.Furthermore, using the sisters’ quest as inspiration, the movie encourages families to celebrate their own traditions along with creating new ones.

Apart from the uplifting message, we found the dialogue witty and funny. Amazingly the writers managed to keep it entirely PG. Furthermore, the film’s pace is artfully steady. So, there are no story gaps or dull moments.

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure  Animation and  Catchy Tunes

When it comes to animation, this latest film is beautifully executed.  The vivid colors along with the attention to the smallest of details make the final product delightful to watch on the big screen.

The movie’s score composed by Christophe Beck and Jeff Morrow complements the plot and animation. But topping it, all are Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson’s four new songs.

During the press event, we were treated to a unique performance. Songwriters Elyssa Samsel & Kate Anderson performed songs from Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.

 

“Ring In The Season,” features Anna and Elsa getting ready for the big Christmas party. It is perfect for the movie’s big finale.”That Time Of The Year” sung by Olaf shows him going house to house asking strangers for their holiday traditions. The song is cute, but what gives the song its edge is watching the hilarious way it is incorporated into the movie.“The Ballad of Flemmingrad ” is a beautiful folk ballad that may not sound much at first but certainly grows on you. It tells a Trolls story that will make listeners smile when they hear the lyrics.

Which brings me to   “When We Are Together.” This one has Elsa and Anna, singing about family and being together for Christmas. Though it isn’t as melodious as ‘ Let it Go’ it is the most catchy of the four. Consider yourselves warned! ” “When We’re Together ‘promises to become the new car karaoke favorite.
