“I Am With You” reminds both children and adults alike how we are never truly alone. In this video, Olaf finds himself inside an empty Arendelle. He wanders around and eventually goes home to Elsa and Ana’s family castle. He starts writing a letter while singing the new song. You’ll find clips and segments of iconic Disney moments being played back while Josh Gad is singing. Towards the end, we see the magical Gale from Frozen 2 arrive and its windy currents help transport Olaf’s letter.
The message of the song is to have hope and remember we will soon be reunited with our loved ones. The global pandemic has prevented us from seeing some of our family and friends, but things will get better. We will be together again soon and create new happy memories.
Josh Gad has been making efforts to entertain audiences at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. He started reading bedtime stories weeks ago for viewers on social media. He also provided voice work for several Olaf shorts while the Disney Animation team works from home.
