Just imagine that your dad was Josh Gad and every day he would talk to you in the voice of Olaf from the movie Frozen. Sounds like a dream come true, right? The actor portrays the character Olaf in Disney's incredibly successful Frozen franchise with short spin-offs as well as a sequel coming soon. So, it's safe to say he's got Olaf's voice down to a science. However, his two daughters who are 3 years old and 6 years old are totally over the animated voice. They quite literally are sick of it and just want their dad to be their dad. There's only one problem, Josh doesn't really do much to change the sound or the tone of his voice when he plays Olaf.
So what does this mean? His voice IS Olaf's voice. The comedian is telling the truth, too. If you listen to really any interview he does with your eyes closed, it's almost as if Olaf is making an appearance on whatever you're hearing, not Josh. He can't really change the voice he was born with which makes for some pretty hilarious situations between Josh and his daughters.
Josh made an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and when Stephen Colbert asks if he reads to them in the voice of his Frozen character he said, "Well, it's my voice." LOL. He has a point there. Josh continued, "They're saying, ‘Read as daddy,' and they're like, ‘Not as Olaf,' and I'm like, ‘I don't decipher between the two." Aww!
Josh was quick to point out that his daughters are actually huge fans of the movie, just not huge fans of him. He said they totally love Elsa and Anna, but like, who doesn't? He said they want to be Elsa and Anna, again, who doesn't? But, no one wants to be him or Olaf we should say. The whole thing is super hilarious. We have a feeling that when Frozen 2 comes out Josh's daughters might have a change of heart and it's not too long before that happens.
Jonathan Groff, who voiced Anna's love Kristoff chatted with ITV's Lorraine and said, "They are doing another Frozen, I actually just started recording Frozen 2 last month. I think it's going to be released in November 2019. It'll be here before you know it." Our calendars are officially marked.
