That Long ‘Frozen’ Short Before ‘Coco’ Has People Irked: ‘Nobody Asked for That’

“It’s a 22-minute mostly-Christmas special (which I’m sure you’ll air on TV for years to come) that I didn’t want or need”

Judging by box office returns alone, Pixar’s animated feature “Coco” has proven to be quite a crowd pleaser. Still, there is a growing faction of people expressing their annoyance over the long, 21-minute “Frozen” short, “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” that plays right before the hit movie.

“My 8-year old nephew, after the excruciating 20 minute Frozen short in front of Coco: ‘Nobody asked for that,'” tweeted one moviegoer.

“Dear @DisneyPixar: That Frozen thingamobob before @pixarcoco–which is lovely–isn’t a “short.” It’s a 22-minute mostly-Christmas special (which I’m sure you’ll air on TV for years to come) that I didn’t want or need,” wrote journalist Marc Bernardin.

Disney miscalculated their decision to make general audiences sit through what some are calling a 21-minute commercial for a “Frozen” sequel that is still two years away. Pixar shorts tend to be under ten minutes, however Disney doubled down its runtime for the new “Frozen” short, which some think was a marketing ploy to get audiences into the theaters.

“Making us endure Olaf’s Frozen Adventure to get to Coco is a metaphor for the Mexican American experience I just haven’t figured out how yet,” said another on Twitter.

“This #OlafsFrozenAdventure short is absolutely painful to sit through. Get on with #Coco !!!” wrote one moviegoer.

Here are more reactions to the lengthy short:

“Frozen 2” is due out on Nov. 27, 2019. “Coco” is in theaters now.
