The following contains a secondary spoiler for Frozen II .
Frozen II has a number of moments big and memorable, but what could end up being the most quotable in the months, and perhaps in the years to come, could be a single word spoken by Olaf the Snowman.
During a sequence of the new movie in which Olaf is separated from his friends. Call each of them in turn. But then he takes another step forward to call someone named Samantha. The punch line comes a moment later when Olaf himself laughs at the fact that he doesn't know anyone by that name.
And then he does it again.
We had no idea who Samantha was, but now it seems we do it, since Josh Gad was at Walt Disney World yesterday and he informed everyone on Instagram that he finally tracked down Samantha.
As proof that he found Samantha, we see the badge with the name of the cast member of Walt Disney World called Samantha. It seems that becoming the Samantha has completely made her day.
Josh Gad was at the theme park this week and recently tested the Rise of the Resistance attraction on Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. He also made a surprise appearance at the Frozen Sing-A-Long show at Disney's Hollywood Studios, where he performed his song from the first Frozen live.
Frozen II can't get much love as much as the original, but it's still largely seen as a good movie, and for the second time, the sidekick snowman is one of the best parts of the film. Olaf grew a little in the new movie. If Olaf was a child in Frozen , he is an elementary school child in Frozen II . He has learned to read and is confident that although there is a lot in the world he does not understand, everything will make sense when he grows up.
The best part of the whole “Samantha” gag is that Josh Gad revealed that the sequence was a bit improvised by him while he was making his recordings that apparently everyone liked so much they decided to use it in the movie. One wonders how many different shots of various scenes of Olaf could be in the two films if Gad had really been given the freedom to make his own jokes. These are some extra Disney that I'd like to see.
Frozen II is getting love at the box office we all expected would be. The film surpassed $ 597 million at the global box office. It seems practically guaranteed to exceed a billion dollars. If it does, it will become the sixth Disney movie to do so only this year.
