Ever since its release, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure has received negative reception from critics and audiences. Having been attached to screenings of Pixar’s Coco, those anticipated for the full-length feature responded poorly to the short with its lengthy runtime of 22 minutes. There is now a rumor that Disney will remove the short from Coco screenings starting December 8th. Jon Negroni, the creator of the Pixar Theory, posted a tweet mentioning Disney apparently sending memos to theaters to remove the short, which can be seen below:
In addition, a Reddit user named natedoggcata made a post describing the memo that Disney has sent to theaters. Although Disney has not made an official statement, this post suggests that part of Negroni’s tweet is valid. The Reddit post can be seen below:
Time will tell if theaters actually pull the short from Coco screenings, although it would not be surprising if they did. After all, removing it from all screenings will mean that more Coco screenings could be added across theaters. More showtimes for Coco provide more chances for Disney and Pixar to gain their money back.
