Popular Broadway/Hollywood crossover stars Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad feature prominently in the new Disney animated movie musical FROZEN and the triple-threat talents discuss their participation in the new film as part of new interviews in promotion of next month's release.
"I play a character named Olaf, who is a snowman... he is so full of joy! He was created by the character of Elsa," Gad outlines as his character's relation to that of another major Broadway marquee name appearing in the film, Idina Menzel (as Elsa).
Additionally, Jonathan Groff discusses his character's relationship with that of the film's other leading lady, Kristen Bell, relating, "The great thing about her, too, is that she is so funny - In the way that Josh Gad is funny. Kristen can think of really hilarious things right on the spot."
Groff also adds of Bell's character, "She's an ingenue with an edge and an ingenue who is also genuinely funny."
The official synopsis for FROZEN is as follows: "Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey-teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven-to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom."
FROZEN is directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, with a screenplay by Jennifer Lee and Shane Morris based on the Hans Christian Andersen story THE SNOW QUEEN. FROZEN stars the voice talents of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Santino Fontana, Josh Gad and more.
