"Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck [the directors] we were actually talking about this yesterday and I forgot, the first time you meet Olaf, that was the very first thing I ever recorded. It was almost recorded (and not an audition) — but it was an audition for the character himself. To see where we were going to go with him and what the rhythm of that would be. That very first scene you see of Olaf, is literally the very first take we ever did of it. And they kept it in the film, and it was just them letting me play and getting a feel for what this guy was."
- Josh Gad (voice of “Olaf”)
