The Frozen co-director has revealed that she wanted to kill off Olaf the snowman, a character who would become one of the film’s most beloved characters.
Jennifer Lee said at an awards show in Los Angeles this weekend that when she came on board Frozen halfway through development, her first suggestion was to get rid of Olaf.
“My first note was, ‘kill the snowman,'” he recalled. according to reports Variety.
That obviously didn’t happen. Lee said a “sneaky” animator working on Frozen developed a three-page treatment for Josh Gad as Olaf. Lee was impressed and the rest, as they say, is history.
The original Frozen has a song, “In Summer”, in which Olaf sings about having a good time when the weather warms up in summer. The joke of the song is that he would die in summer.
