Secondary Character Sunday: Olaf, the Snowman (Frozen)

Thanks to my wonderful daughter, Maggie, today’s Secondary Character profile is only a day late. She gets all the credit for this one, as I have been too busy cooking up graphic design concepts for the 2014 season of one of my favorite npo’s the Baltimore Shakespeare Factory. So here’s the fabulous Maggie with her take on Frozen and Olaf (thanks Maggie!!!)

WHO: Olaf

FROM: Disney’s Frozen

BY: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee, Shane Morris

PROS:  He is eternally optimistic, sees the good in everybody. Olaf is loyal, he tries hard to protect others and doesn’t judge. He is afraid of very few things

CONS: He’s also clueless (he doesn’t know that he can melt.) He is too ready to trust.

MOST SHINING MOMENT: Taking care of Anna in the castle

LEAST SHINING MOMENT: His song (we disagree on this. Although I haven’t seen the movie, one of my voice students, Hope, played his song for me and I thought it was adorable.)

Why Maggie suggested Olaf: He a character you could easily discount, but the story would be the lesser for it.
We see though him an outward expression of who Elsa could be. That’s something we don’t get from Elsa because she is Anna’s foil.
