The things you can do when you’re stuck at home, huh?

In the current lockdown Disney have started to drop episodes of a new series of shorts called At Home With Olaf, starring Josh Gad’s snowman from the Frozen franchise.

The series, created by Hyrum Osmond and starring Gad will be created primarilty by the duo working – you guessed it – from home. And it looks like it’s going to feature Olaf instructing us all about things like social distancing.

Personally, I like Gad’s work as Olaf and I find the character cute and funny, so I’ll welcome the brevity in otherwise stressful time.

Gad said of the project: “My friends @alittlejelee & @mrhyrum called me up one day & asked me if I would be able 2 record some dialogue & sounds as Olaf from home. These little shorts done from home by Hyrum & the @DisneyAnimation team are so charming & hopefully provide a smile during these scary times”

So, without further ado, here’s the first  four episodes:

Episode One: Alone in the Forest

Episode Two: Fishin’

Episode Three: Leaves

Episode Four: Sleep

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
