After having just released the teaser trailer this morning, Walt Disney Animation Studios have announced it has tapped a trio of actors to join the voice cast in Frozen. Josh Gad (The Internship, Love & Other Drugs, Broadways “The Book of Mormon”) provides the voice of Olaf the snowman; Santino Fontana (Broadway’s “Cinderella,” Brighton Beach Memoirs, Billy Elliot) lends his vocal talents as Hans; and Alan Tudyk (42, Wreck-It Ralph, ABC’s “Suburgatory”) joins the film as the voice of the Duke of Weselton.
Gad brings his sense of humor and his incomparable personality to Olaf, a fun and lively snowman who joins Anna and Kristoff on their journey to save the kingdom. Fontana provides the voice of Annas handsome suitor Hans, who steps in to govern Arendelle when Anna takes off to find her siste. Tudyk gives voice to a prominent duke visiting Arendelle for a coronation ceremony.
The group of actors joins Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Jonathan Groff in the epic adventure, directed by Chris Buck (Tarzan, Surfs Up) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, Wreck-It Ralph), and produced by Peter Del Vecho (Winnie the Pooh, The Princess and the Frog).
Frozen is slated for the big screen Nov. 27, 2013, and will be presented in 3D in select theaters.
