Disney is getting rid of the 22-minute 'Frozen' short that plays before 'Coco'

Posted: Updated:

To see Pixar's latest smash hit 'Coco', viewers were forced to sit through a 22-minute 'Frozen' short film -- now Disney is getting rid of it.

Pixar films normally have a short film that plays after the previews. They're usually about 5 to 10 minutes long and are completely original. But for screenings of 'Coco', moviegoers were shown an especially long short film called 'Olaf's Frozen Adventure' -- detailing 'Frozen' characters' holiday traditions. 

Starting December 8, the short will be removed. According to Mashable, Disney made the decision after fans became upset with the short for 2 reasons:

1. It was just too long. Between the previews and the short, the actual film didn't actually start until 40 minutes after the scheduled showtime.

2. Fans expect an original short film, but instead, they got what many called an advertisement for the upcoming 'Frozen 2'.

Theaters are being instructed to use the extra available time to schedule more screenings for 'Coco'.
