“Frozen” has become one of the famous and box office animated feature movies of Disney. It is not just only the plot and twist of story that makes it very appealing to everyone especially the youngsters but because of the primary characters that bring life and levity to the movie. Just like Olaf, the friendly snowman who sprung from the magical powers of Elsa. He is popular with his quote, “Hi, I’m Olaf and I like warm hugs!”.
In the movie, Olaf is voiced by Josh Gad. Most critiques described him as hapless, goofy, outgoing, innocent, creative, naive, kind-hearted, affectionate, whimsical, optimistic little creature. Elsa created Olaf from the happy childhood memories she shared with her sister Anna. Because he is built during their younger years, Olaf retaines the childlike personality that filled Anna and Elsa during those years, appearing to be very whimsical and playful when he returns as an enchanted snowman years later.
His body is divided into three balls of snow (five, if one counts his feet), though he has the uncanny ability to rearrange his appearance at good and not-so-good times lead to some awkward, albeit laughable moments. Three black rocks modeled as buttons are on his body, one on his midsection and two on his bottom. Underneath his bottom are two stubs of snow that serve as his legs to move around. He has two sticks as arms and three twigs on his head that resemble small strands of hair. Each arm has four points acting as fingers. His head takes up a third of his body, and is oval-shaped with a stretched face. The snow around the top of his mouth is shaped to resemble buck teeth. In between his eyes and mouth is a carrot nose. When he was inanimate, his eyes were also made of rock. However, when living, his eyes are cartoony with black pupils. He also has eyebrows above them. He may also have the world’s most impossible dream, and that is to experience summer!
After being created, Olaf, then, wanders around the mountains alone and blissfully lost, until he bumps into Anna, Kristoff and Sven the reindeer, who seek for Elsa who would exile herself from Arendelle after her magic was discovered and deemed dangerous. The team wanted to bring back the snow queen to Arendelle so that she can bring back summer after she accidentally caused an eternal winter.
Aside from his dominantly goofy side, Olaf is shown to have some intelligence to him. He teaches Anna what true love is, and that it’s putting someone else before yourself, using Kristoff as the perfect example, finally giving Anna the true meaning of love.
And after the climax, when Anna sacrifices herself for Elsa, thus breaking the icy curse, Olaf is the first to realize Anna’s sacrifice is an act of true love (it didn’t have to be romantic), and exclaims that, “an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart”.
His words help Elsa realize that love is the key to controlling her power as she thaws Arendelle, bringing back summer. Overjoyed, Olaf smiles with glee, but quickly melts due to the summer heat. Elsa restores him and gives him a small flurry cloud to hover over his body and keep him completely cool, finally allowing the snowman to live his dream of experiencing summer and all its wonders.
Because of Olaf amazing personality he is love by little children like my client, Ernest Jeovanni. So for his 3rd birthday, his parents requested for a two-tier chocolate cake covered with fondant icing. The cake is with the theme color of blue and white and filled with chocolate ganache. There are snowflakes and snow flowers around the the cakes and the Trolls of stones.
After seeing, the cake, little Ernest was so happy. And surely he gave Olaf his super sweet and warm hug.
Happy Birthday Ernest!
