Disney+ subscribers in the United States can enjoy the latest spin-off based on the beloved Frozen franchise as of today. The release in question, titled “Once Upon A Snowman,” is only the second short film based on the said animated IP after “Frozen Fever” which released all the way back in 2015.

Unlike that short feature, this one isn’t a sequal but a somewhat less conventional midquel, which is 100% a real word, believe it or not. Much like its playful title suggests, this work is starring the popular Olaf, an energetic digital snowman voiced by “The Book of Mormon” star Joshua I. Gad. The very existence of this short film was a well-kept secret at Disney for quite a while, as the animation was only announced during an episode of Jimmy Kimmel’s ABC talk show which premiered last month.

Any other year and “Once Upon A Snowman” would have probably been treated to a limited theatrical release at the very least, but the current circumstances were not suitable for anything else but a direct-to-streaming debut. Needless to say, do not expect this featurette to make its way to any Disney+ alternatives anytime soon.

A month-long Disney Plus subscription is available to U.S. customers from $6.99 or $12.99 per month, depending on whether you want to bundle it along with access to other Walt Disney Co. properties.
