Walt Disney Animation Studios has selected three talented actors to join the voice cast in “Frozen.” Josh Gad (“The Internship,” “Love & Other Drugs,” Broadway’s “The Book of Mormon”) will lend his vocal talents as Olaf the snowman, Santino Fontana (Broadway’s “Cinderella,” “Brighton Beach Memoirs,” “Billy Elliot”) will join the film as the voice of Hans, and Alan Tudyk (“42,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” ABC’s “Suburgatory”) will provide the voice of Duke of Weselton. This talented group of actors will co-star alongside Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, and Jonathan Groff in this epic adventure. The film is being directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), and produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”). “Frozen” is scheduled to make its big screen debut November 27, 2013, and will be available in 3D in select theaters.
Gad will bring his personality and sense of humor to Olaf, who is a fun and lively snowman that joins Anna and Kristoff on their journey to save the kingdom. Gad is a veteran of the Groundlings Improv troupe and the founder of The Lost Nomads Comedy Troupe. He appears alongside Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson in “The Internship,” and has a guest-starring role in Fox’s “New Girl.”
Fontana will provide the voice of Anna’s handsome suitor Hans, who steps in to govern Arendelle when Anna takes off to find her sister. Fontana was seen on Broadway as Prince Charming in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella,” where he even received a Tony nomination.
Tudyk will voice a prominent duke visiting Arendelle for a coronation ceremony. He is returning to the Walt Disney Animation Studios recording studio now having earned an Annie Award as the voice of King Candy in “Wreck-It Ralph.” Tudyk lent his vocal talents to a host of animated films, including three of the “Ice Age” films and “Alvin & the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked,” as well as “Robot Chicken” and “Family Guy.”
