FROZEN II: Olaf Voice Actor Josh Gad Explains Why The Snowman Shouldn't Have His Own Movie

Frozen II was a huge hit for Disney, just as its predecessor had been, likely paving the way for more installments in the future. Josh Gad, who voices Olaf, recently weighed in on the chances of that!

Frozen is an animated film that took the world by storm. Compared to many of the recent titles released from the studio such as Tangled and Moana, the film was a juggernaut. That's not to say that Rapunzel and Moana didn't have a strong following as both of those movies did very well, but the fandom for Frozen reached another level entirely.

The sequel followed up that success by delivering another billion dollar hit to theaters. With this track record a third film is all but assured, however Olaf actor Josh Gad doesn't seem quite as sure. The voice actor recently spoke with, where he shared his thoughts on an Olaf spin-off or a potential third outing for Elsa and friends.

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.

Having said that, the one thing I had publicly said I would do is I would do some series that would allow Olaf to recap other films like he does in ‘Frozen II’. That is something I would do. 

In regards to whether or not there will be a Frozen III, this is what the actor had to say.

That’s way above my pay grade, but what I can tell you is this: There was an opportunity to take these characters and bring again a sense of hope and inspiration. And it’s why the team at Disney and I teamed up on the past couple of weeks to do ‘At Home with Olaf’ […] And so the Frozen saga continues, even if it’s not necessarily in the form of a third movie.

But we’ll see! If there’s a story worth telling, I’m sure that Jennifer Lee and the incredible team over at Disney animation will tell that story one day.

Do you think Olaf should have his own outing? check out the trailer and synopsis for Frozen 2 below and share your thoughts in the comments section!


Why was Elsa born with magical powers? What truths about the past await Elsa as she ventures into the unknown to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond Arendelle? The answers are calling her but also threatening her kingdom.

Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she'll face a dangerous but remarkable journey. In Frozen, Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In Frozen II, she must hope they are enough.

Frozen II is now streaming on Disney+.
