Josh Gad's Fancasting For A Live-Action Frozen Is Hilariously Perfect

Disney's "Frozen" franchise has led to some of the company's biggest animated hits ever. Probably every living person on Earth has heard Idina Menzel's chart-topping smash "Let It Go," and both "Frozen" and "Frozen II" have brought in some incredible box office numbers (via Variety), meaning we could see another sequel coming down the pipeline one of these days.

Josh Gad plays Olaf in both movies, as well as all of the shorts that have been attached to the main stories of "Frozen," and he even reprised the role in the "Kingdom Hearts" video game series (via IMDb). Gad has also appeared as LeFou, Gaston's (Luke Evans) loyal sidekick in Disney's live-action remake of "Beauty and the Beast."

With all of this Disney work under his belt, the star was honored by the company at their D23 Expo with a Disney Legend Award. However, never one to pass up the chance for a good quip, Gad joked about his own fan-casting for what could be an inevitable "Frozen" live-action remake.

Gad casts Zendaya, Millie Bobby Brown, and Jacob Tremblay

As of press time, Disney has released nearly 20 live-action remakes of some of their most popular animated films, including "Cinderella," "Mulan," "The Jungle Book," and "Pinocchio" (via Entertainment Weekly). With this trend in mind, it's no wonder that Josh Gad joked about the casting choices that might accompany a "Frozen" remake.

During his acceptance speech for the Disney Legend Award, Gad quipped that the remake would probably star Millie Bobby Brown and Zendaya as Anna and Elsa, the sisters at the heart of the fairy tale story. Meanwhile, he imagined that Jacob Tremblay might be the one to take on the role of Olaf.

Though Gad was clearly joking, this casting seems surprisingly plausible, but only if Disney decided to do the remake sooner rather than later. After all, Brown and Zendaya are both major rising stars behind two of the most popular shows on television, "Stranger Things" and "Euphoria." However, Disney would have to get on the remake before the duo ages out of being able to realistically play the young sisters.

As for Tremblay, the actor has been consistently working since he broke out in the 2015 dramatic thriller "Room." Furthermore, he's already done plenty of voice-acting work, meaning he could be a conceivable choice for Olaf in a "Frozen" remake. Either way, now we just need to wait and see if Disney copies Gad's homework for the remake when it does come down the pipeline.
