"Coco" was a hit at the box office over Thanksgiving weekend, naturally, but the decision to air a very long "Frozen" short before "Coco" was not so popular. It's not that fans don't like "Frozen," or that there was something wrong with the new story. That's not the problem. They were just confused why something THAT LONG had to play before the movie they paid for. It wasn't exactly a short short.
Apparently it made life rough for movie theater employees as well as fans:
shout out to disney for making my life harder. i had about 70 confused customers who thought they were in the wrong theater since disney decided to put a 20 minute frozen short before coco.

Sometimes I wake up covered in sweat and screaming, filled with the horrifying certainty that I'm STILL watching that seemingly endless Frozen "short" that played before Coco.

They say in the moment before you die a 22 minute Frozen short flashes before your eyes.

My 8-year old nephew, after the excruciating 20 minute Frozen short in front of Coco: "Nobody asked for that"

Poor Olaf. Maybe if they had played it after the movie? Or made the short optional, and made that clear, so families could come 20 minutes later, during some kind of brief intermission before "Coco" started?
