Disney just made millions of “Frozen” fans very happy! The animation giant released a trailer on June 13 for the latest installment in the story of Queen Elsa, Princess Anna and all their friends. And it’s coming to theaters on November 22, 2017 as a lead-in to Pixar’s newest feature film “Coco.”

"I'm thrilled that Disney Animation's featurette ‘Olaf's Frozen Adventure’ will be coming to theaters in November with Pixar's 'Coco,'" said John Lasseter, chief creative officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. "It's a perfect pairing-they're both beautiful, heartfelt films about families and how people carry traditions forward. I can't wait for audiences to get to see both of these terrific projects together on the big screen."

Original Cast of Frozen Reunites

“Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” reunites original cast members Idina Menzel (Elsa), Kristen Bell (Anna), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff) and Josh Gad (Olaf). The new 21-minute film features four original songs written by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson.

"We loved getting in the recording booth with these incredible actors who know their characters inside and out," said co-director Stevie Wermers-Skelton in a press statement. "We can't wait for audiences to see the featurette, enjoy their performances, and hear the incredible new songs written by Elyssa and Kate."

This short film will tide “Frozen” fans over until “Frozen 2” is released in November 2019.

Olaf Searches For Holiday Traditions

“Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” picks up sometime after the original movie and things seem great in Arendelle. Elsa and Anna invite everyone to the palace to celebrate the holidays. However, the sisters quickly discover they don’t have any traditions of their own. Of course, everyone’s favorite funny and loveable snowman, Olaf, plans to save the day! His goal: To search Arendelle for the best holiday traditions and bring them back for his friends.

The trailer gives viewers a quick preview to one of the new original songs. This time, it sounds like a duet between Elsa and Anna. Hooray for sisterly love!

And one look at the trailer and you’ll see Olaf manages to get himself into some pretty amusing (and even a bit dangerous) situations. Here’s a hint: the snowman’s fascination with all things hot didn’t end with the first movie.

So, mark your calendars for Nov. 22 “Frozen” fans! Your royal family is returning for the holiday season!

And in the meantime, if you haven’t already watched the “Coco” trailer, check it out below. Here’s the synopsis of the new Pixar film via Disney:

Despite his family's baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
