It’s Harry Potter vs. Artemis Fowl! Josh Gad is the Hagrid of Artemis Fowl & Gilderoy Lockhart directed! Let’s talk about the connection & flash back to my secret Frozen Olaf interview with Josh Gad! Josh is SUPER nice and of course, really funny! Knowing that he’s a big Star Wars fan, we definitely had to get a question in there!
There’s so much crossover with Harry Potter here. From Mulch Diggums looking curiously a lot like Hagrid to Gilderoy Lockhart, well, Kenneth Branagh, directing! This is undeniably Disney’s foray into a Harry Potter-type universe. Will it work? Well, early reviews aren’t looking great, but it’s certainly a strong book series with many fans. They’ve also brought it some major actors here with Dame Judi Dench and, of course, Josh Gad!
So, we met Josh Gad back in 2013 at Disney’s D23! It’s the same even where I interviewed both Kristen Bell: https://youtu.be/KeYgl05AZR8 and Idina Menzel: https://youtu.be/0d1sPqvqHEI It’s really cool to look back in 2020 at an interview from before the world knew Olaf, Anna, Elsa and Frozen!
OH! To those of you who caught the Cult Classic Supergirl the Movie reference, here’s my coverage from the very early Piper’s Picks TV days:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DYzO7MzI_s
