Josh Gad’s Daughters Want Him to Voice Another Disney Character Instead of Olaf
While the entire world is in love with Olaf, some kids are already over him. The actor who voices the character, Josh Gad, has revealed that his daughters want him to play a different Disney role.
Although he began his career with TV, it was Frozen’s Olaf which brought him into spotlight.
In 2009, he joined The Daily Show and became a regular with his segments, The War on Christmas and Chubby Chasers. However, it was his film career which gained him recognition. Initially, Josh Gad played minor roles in films like 21, The Rocker, Love & Other Drugs. With the passage of time, he started voicing animated characters in Disney and other films. In 2017, he Josh Gad voiced Bailey in A Dog’s Purpose as well as LeFou in the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. However, his most memorable and popular performance is as Olaf in Frozen franchise. Throughout Anna and Elsa’s journey, Olaf plays an essential role. He is most famous for his optimism and warm hugs.
While the character is loved by all and people want a spin-off, Josh Gad thinks otherwise. When asked if he would be up for a spin-off film for Olaf, he said:
“Probably not. And I’ll tell you why. I feel like Olaf really is a part of the fabric of the actual stories that include Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, etc. And to me, separating him from that group doesn’t necessarily feel warranted and doesn’t necessarily feel earned.”
Recently, Josh Gad admitted that his daughters want him to play a different Disney character.
During an interview on The Graham Norton Show, Josh Gad revealed that his daughters are over Olaf. He said:
“My girls really wish Moana is their father. They are somewhat over Olaf at this point. I have to remind them that Olaf pays for their school, the roof over their head and those quesadillas they love eating. So Olaf isn’t going anywhere soon if they want to keep eating and drinking!”
In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, Josh Gad is busy virtually promoting animated musical series, Central Park. While his daughters might be over Olaf, we certainly are not. Hopefully, he will continue voicing our favorite snowman.
