Disney Will Reportedly Stop Playing 20-Minute "Frozen" Short Before "Coco"

You'll Soon Be Able to See Coco Without That Twenty Minute Frozen Short

Many who went to the theaters to watch Coco were confused if they were at the right screening. Disney, apparently, has figured that out, and reportedly chose to cancel the run of the Frozen short that has been playing before Coco since the newest Pixar movie made its Thanksgiving week debut.

FYI, we still love you, Olaf.

Olaf's Frozen Adventure, which clocks in at about 22 minutes long, was initially slated as an ABC special, but when those plans didn't work out, Disney chose to pop the "short" in after the trailers that run before Coco. Also, the short itself is hardly getting rave reviews.

Er, you can still see Olaf's Frozen Adventure in United Kingdom cinemas though, if you want.

He said assessments across several industries were never carried out because "the range of different outcomes is too wide". When you have a paradigm change - as happened in 2008 with the financial crisis - all the models were wrong.

"Coco" has been dominating the box office, but attached to it is a very long "short" called "Olaf's Frozen Adventure".

The 21 minute Disney short - along with the trailers - delayed Coco by at least 40 minutes. It was originally meant to be an ABC TV special, before the decision was made to release it alongside Coco. According to the Los Angeles Times, Lava, the short which dropped before Inside Out lasted seven minutes, Geri's Game (which dropped before A Bug's Life) is four and half minutes long while Day and Night (which was shown before Toy Story 3) was nearly six minutes. It has already become the highest grossing movie in Mexico's history. "Coco", which takes Miguel into the magical Land of the Dead, where trickster Hector (Gael Garcia Bernal) helps him unravel a deep family secret, received a rare A+ rating from audiences surveyed by CinemaScore. Disney's short movie, which was originally supposed to premiere on ABC during Christmas, was moved to the theaters as a holiday special.

Many blamed Disney's lack of confidence in a movie that stars all-brown Mexican characters as the reason for the Frozen short to be included before Coco.
