Frozen's Olaf to debut as a balloon in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
Who says that holiday celebrations can’t start in November?
Beloved Frozen snowman Olaf will make his debut as a balloon in the upcoming Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, according to USA Today. The appearance in the 91st annual parade in New York City comes the day after the release of the new featurette Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, which will arrive in theaters with Disney/Pixar’s Coco. The upcoming release will include original voice actors Josh Gad (Olaf), Idina Menzel, and Kristin Bell. New music for the featurette has already gotten fans excited for its release.
“Having an Olaf balloon alongside Mickey, Elmo and Big Bird is a dream come true and something that, because (the parade’s) so storied and has such a long tradition, I now get to share with my own kids,” says Gad.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be broadcast on Thursday, Nov. 23 at 9 a.m. ET on NBC.
