Olaf’s Frozen Adventure Being Removed From Coco Screenings
Following the backlash from many viewers who went to see Coco at cinemas in the US, Disney have announced that they will be removing the 22 minute short, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure from Coco screenings from December 8th.
The short has already been removed from Coco screenings in Mexico as many people weren’t happy with being forced to watch the latest Frozen offering.
Originally the short was going to be a television special but was added to the Coco showings, probably because Disney weren’t sure if Coco was going to be popular and it would help increase box office numbers, which is what happened to Cinderella, which had Frozen Fever before it.
Pixar movies usually have an animated short before it, but they are usually “short”, since they are normally only a few minutes long and I’ll be honest, I always look forward to seeing them.
Coco co-director Adrian Molina confessed that the short was ‘a bit of an experiment’ saying: ‘It is longer than, I think, any other short that has ever been attached to one of these films, so I’ve heard that that has taken people by surprise.’
One of the issues with Olaf’s Frozen Adventure is that parents weren’t impressed with the quality and found it boring.
Reports are that Disney is requesting cinemas use the additional time from the removal of Frozen to offer an additional showing of Coco.
