'Frozen's' "Olaf" Sings New Song "I Am With You" To Bring Comfort While Social Distancing
The beloved snowman "Olaf" from Disney's Frozen franchise has penned a brand-new song as a show of support during these uncertain times! Listen to "I Am With You" here!
"Olaf" wants to reassure people that they're not alone, wherever they may be! As People reports, Disney released a new song from the lovable singing snowman on Tuesday, titled "I Am With You." The accompanying video for the tune shows "Olaf" (voiced by Josh Gad) writing a special message while at home in the Arendelle palace.
He looks out at the streets—which are now empty— while delivering his message in the form of song. "I am with you with this letter / I am with you with this song / I am with you when you laugh at something silly I did wrong," "Olaf" sings. "Who cares about our wheresabouts/I'm here and you are there / But I'm with you / And I care."
"Olaf" sings about wishing that people could see one another again
"Olaf's" song is one that's meant to provide a sense of comfort, with lyrics reflective of the current circumstances of the world. While he sings, a montage of clips from various Disney movies plays, showing moments from Lady and the Tramp, Alice in Wonderland, Tarzan, Big Hero 6, Frozen, and more.
"I wish there was a looking glass that we could see each other through / Maybe one day they'll discover it / And you'll see me and I'll see you," Olaf sings. "But 'till they do / I am with you with this music / I am with you with this rhyme / I am with you if you need me / Any moment / Any time / I am with you / And you're with me."
"Olaf's" voice Gad calls song "a love letter to you from all of us"
"Olaf" finishes writing his message, then asks the wind spirit "Gail" if she could take it to the people of Arendelle. "Would you please deliver this for me?" he asks at the end of the clip. "I'll see you soon." The touching video was shared by Disney Animation, who took to Twitter to share it with a message of their own.
"Wherever you may be, here’s a special message from Olaf’s home to yours," they wrote. “I Am With You” Music and Lyrics Written at Home by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Performed at Home by Josh Gad. Directed at Home by Dan Abraham. #AtHomeWithOlaf #DisneyMagicMoments."
