Directors Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton, who previously directed the Prep & Landing specials, are set to direct the project, while Roy Conli is set to produce, thus making it the first animated Frozen project not to be directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, or produced by Peter Del Vecho. With Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez not returning to compose the songs, Kate Anderson and Elyssa Samsel will take over.

So, Olaf sets out to comb the kingdom to bring home the best traditions and save this first Christmas for his friends.
The special is set to be shown with screenings of Pixar's Coco on November 22, 2017 in the United States. In the United Kingdom, the special will be shown with screenings ofFrozen on November 25 and 26.
