Disney Plus has had a pretty good month so far, offering subscribers everything from brand new original shows and movies to classic films that have certainly added even more nostalgia to a service already teeming with it. The original flick Clouds has provided a dose of inspiration for viewers to absorb, while the addition of beloved movies like Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent, the mutant sequel X2, and ensemble comedy Cheaper by the Dozen 2 has kept everyone busy while they wait for October’s biggest release.
That’s right – we all know season 2 of The Mandalorian is probably all that’s on your mind these days, but you’ve still got to hold on until October 30th for the premiere episode. While you continue to sit patiently, though, waiting to see Baby Yoda in an adorable pouch sling – no, really, go look at how cute that is – today’s Disney Plus selections should at least help keep you occupied, especially if you love a certain animated snowman.
The hilarious and good-natured Olaf from Disney’s Frozen franchise stars in his very own origin story in Once Upon a Snowman. This short film follows the quirky little fellow through his initial realization that he’s alive, and then it sets him off on his very first adventure to figure out who he is and what he’s all about. If it’s anything like the mainline movies, it’s guaranteed to be a quirky and sweet journey for children and adults alike, so you won’t want to miss it.
