Could Josh Gad possibly show up in a galaxy far, far away? Never say never … this has been a magical week for actor and comedian Josh Gad!
Still riding the Frozen wave from 2013, in which he voiced the affable and detachable snowman Olaf, he reprises the role in Frozen Fever. This short debuted yesterday with feature film Cinderella.
Of course he’s a (snow) shoo-in to voice Olaf yet again in Frozen 2. This sequel was confirmed this week by Disney at its annual stockholders meeting.
And we may soon more than just hear Josh. Disney has announced that he will play Le Fou, sidekick to antler-adoring antagonist Gaston, in the upcoming live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.
If you thought Josh Gad was going to be in only a Fou Disney movies, stay tuned … he might just end up being in Olaf them!
In what other roles can you imagine Josh? How about Timothy J Mouse in the recently announced live-action Dumbo? Or maybe a new character in Finding Dory? Disney also confirmed this week the scheduled release of Star Wars VIII in 2017 … a distant relative of Yoda? … perhaps a renegade Ewok? … oh please, not Darth Olaf!
