Hello everyone, it’s Saturday, and for today, we are going to take a look at many people’s favorite character from the Disney movie Frozen — Olaf, the snowman who loves warm hugs!
Many people, myself included, thought that the character of Olaf was a filler character, something that Disney felt it had to include in the movie because of some of the more somber moments. However, I’ve got to say, after seeing the movie, Olaf was perfect in the role he was developed for, and there are many layers to that snowman!
When it comes to Olaf, so many different facets are wrapped up on that snow exterior, I think it is fun to examine him from the perspective of some of the great lines that Olaf had. It all begins with one of his first memorable lines, which was spoken by Elsa in the beginning, but became Olaf’s montra as the movie progressed:
“Hi, I’m Olaf, and I like warm hugs.” ~ Olaf the snowman
The beauty of Olaf is his childlike innocence, and how, at the heart of the matter, Olaf is the snowman with one of the biggest hearts in Arendelle. It’s interesting to me how the original statement wasn’t made by Olaf, but was instead made by Elsa when Olaf was nothing other than just a snowman, yet when Olaf was recreated and came to life, that one line because his way of greeting people. Obviously to me, at least, Elsa must have subconsciously put that quote in his mind, but we don’t know why or anything, and any conclusion we come to would just be speculation.
“Some people are worth melting for.” ~ Olaf the snowman
Those powerful six words, found near the end of the movie, really struck home with me. It is at that moment that Olaf tells all of us in the theater exactly what life is all about, that there are times in our lives when we choose to stand with someone regardless of the circumstances — it is at that moment in time that we realize that some people are worth melting for. Who would you “melt” for in your life? Let me know in the comments, and thanks!
Lastly, my friends, let’s take a look at Olaf and his imagination at what life will be like for him In Summer:
