Los Angeles: A new “Frozen” story titled “Frozen Northern Lights” is coming in book form and a TV series.
The first novel will debut in July from Disney Publishing while Disney Channel will air a series of shorts and a special from LEGO Group this fall, reports eonline.com.
“The shorts are unbelievably cool. Fans are absolutely going to love it,” actor Josh Gad shared in a statement.
“All of the voice talent from the original film is back. This is going to be unbelievable you guys.”
He added: “I think fans love Olaf because he’s funny, loyal and a great friend and going on any adventure with him is fun.”
The latest announcement comes as Disney continues to expand the “Frozen” empire. Back in February, Disney Theatrical Group announced that a musical adaptation will open in the spring of 2018 after a limited pre-Broadway engagement in the summer of 2017.
For now, Gad is excited about the upcoming summer project.
“I fell in love with ‘Frozen’ because of the amazing story, characters and music and I’m so honoured to continue to be a part of it,” he shared.
“My kids also happen to be huge fans and it’s really special to voice one of their characters.”
Gad added: “I’m so unbelievably excited to be back as Olaf.”
