From PopKorn Kat :

A half-hearted attempt to milk the Frozen franchise until it melts. I've already gotten very sick of Frozen long before, and this special doesn't help the franchise's case. The makings for even a decent holiday special were halfway there, but they just didn't fit, resulting in nothing more than a mediocre time stopper surely to annoy anyone who isn't a fan of Frozen. The story: Elsa and Anna throw a party for the people of Ardendale. However, after the bell is rung, they all leave to celebrate their own holiday traditions, so Olaf finds it his duty to seek out some traditions on his own. He loads them into a sleigh, but on the way back, it catches fire (thanks to a mishap with some coal) and falls off a cliff. Olaf ventures into the woods with nothing but a fruitcake and is chased by wolves. He makes it out...only to have the fruitcake snatched by a hawk. Olaf gives up and stays in the woods. Elsa and Anna stage a search for him and find him. Then they explain that the tradition was Olaf all along and then they celebrate Christmas...even though the events leading up to the whole thing were holiday-agnostic. Whee. The entire plot is based on an issue that could have been easily avoided, as my dad pointed out to me. Why couldn't Elsa and Anna invite them back in by offering free food? Or by serving the food before ringing the bell? I didn't find the special particularly heartwarming, either, especially since there was little to no moviation. Also, I found the songs absolutely grating, and I usually love songs in Disney movies and TV shows! There were some things I liked about the special. The animation, as always, was nice, though there wasn't anything that impressed me. There were these cute kittens during the part where Olaf went from door to door gathering traditions. There were some amusing physical gags, such as one where Olaf goes to a sauna and melts. The scenes where Olaf got physically injured were by far the best parts of the whole special. Apparently, this "short" was originally slated to air on ABC, and I feel it should have stayed there instead of being a lead-in to Pixar's Coco. Overall, this short had some good things in it, but it needed a bit more fine-tuning before being committed to film. 5/10.
