Fans of the world of Frozen – specifically Olaf are in for a real treat, as Disney and Josh Gad are teaming up to launch a new digital series called At Home With Olaf.
The series, which is being developed for Disney’s streamer, Disney+, is being created by Hyrum Osmond (Tangled), with Gad returning to voice the huggable snowman. The series has a simple plot, as it follows Olaf living his life social distancing. It is unknown if any other additional characters including Elsa (Idina Mendel), Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), and Sven will make an appearance.
You can check out a short teaser for the project below:

The Frozen franchise has been Disney’s bread and butter since 2013, both movies have grossed a combined worldwide total of $2.7 billion, and have gone on to spawn multiple short films. Frozen is heavily featured in the Disney Parks as well with multiple parade floats, a stage show at Disney’s California Adventure, and its very own attraction at Walt Disney World.
Gad has continued to voice Olaf in various projects from shorts, video games, and merchandise. So it is nice to see the actor use the character he and the world loves to bring everyone some much needed cheer during these rough times.
