Look at you Disney, creating movies from an abundance of ethnical backgrounds.

Enough of me being snarky. This looks cute, even if I watched it without sound.

The line is getting a little blurred since Pixar isn't always delivering up to their standards and Disney is getting better with the movies mentioned above

21 minutes is too long for a short. Coworker said they went to Coco and also through they were in the wrong movie.

Besides the insanely long animated short beforehand Coco was an amazing film! My wife was in tears throughout. She was very happy to see Disney portray her culture (She is half mexican) and to do it so well! 10/10 would see again.

Disney removing the Frozen short in front of Coco starting December 8th
From Reddit:
So I work at a movie theater, and we got a notice from Disney stating that as of next Friday, the Frozen short will be removed from the film.
Here is what was sent to us
"Please note that the run of Olaf’s Frozen Adventure playing before COCO will end after 12/7. Starting on Friday 12/8 no more Olaf shorts should be up on screen.With the extra 22 minutes of running time back, we would appreciate if you could get in an extra show if possible.
Thanks!"
That last part is true because If the short wasn't there in the first place, we would have been able to add an extra Matinee for the movie.
Either way, the short has been nothing but a pain in the ass and non stop complaints from customers, and rightfully so. We even put up notices on the box office window, concession stands, and the door to the theater, and we are still getting complaints.
Also, I feel that the short also hurts the thank you message that plays at the beginning of Coco. I stood in the back of the theater once after we got complaints about the Frozen short to kinda of gauge the crowd reaction. Once Frozen was over, I could hear people whispering things like "finally". But then when the Coco short started, the entire audience let out a loud and collective groan and of course I started hearing things like "start the movie already ffs!"
This is a shame because Coco is such a beautiful movie and the thank you message at the beginning is really sweet.
Edit: RIP my inbox. I didn't think this would blow up as much as it did

We will probably wait to see it once Frozen is taken off the front. 2+ hours at a movie theater is too long for a toddler.

'Olaf's Frozen Adventure' to leave theaters: 'Coco' co-director Adrian Molina explains what Pixar was thinking
“This year, we came out with two films: We had Cars 3 in the summer, and then Coco in the fall,” Molina told Yahoo. “Attached to Cars 3 was Lou, a [Pixar] short that we had developed in the studio. But for Coco, we didn’t have anything ready for it. And so Disney [Animation] contacted us and said, ‘We’ve got this Frozen short, and it’s kind of in the same wheelhouse in that it deals with the themes of family traditions and knowing what your family traditions are.’ And were like, oh, that sounds like a nice pairing.”

According to Molina, Pixar did not at any point develop a short specifically to pair with Coco, because of the time crunch of releasing two films in a single year. (While Pixar also released two films in 2015, one of those films, The Good Dinosaur, was originally slated for 2014. With that exception, the studio has released one film a year since 2006.)

As for the length of Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, Molina acknowledged, “It is longer than any short that has preceded one of our films before. So that was a little bit of an experiment.”

Seems like a pretty poor excuse. It's not like they didn't know about the release date well in advance.

We saw this over the weekend. It was really good, not the best Pixar movie, but top half for sure. Jocelyn correctly guessed every major plot point 45+ minutes before they happened.

If you don't tear up or choke-up during the last 15 minutes of the movie you then you must be a robot.
