When chatting with Josh Gad during a special screening of the featurette, the Actor couldn’t help express his joy and gratefulness to be a part of the Disney Family Tradition.

“…not a day goes by where I, I’m not, I don’t wonder how this became the biggest animated movie of all time. And I think that a part of it, at it’s core, it’s a story about siblings. That’s a very universal thing. — But I had no idea it was going to become the phenomenon it’s became. And it’s still surreal to me. — I never take for granted the fact that this is magic hour that I’m living right now. And growing up, I just want to give a shout out to Robert Guillaume, who passed away today, who voiced one of my idols, who was Rafiki (The Lion King) growing up, and you know, to give life to these characters, to create something like “asante sana squash banana ” that lives on in another generation; my kids are watching that. Or the late Robin Williams as the genie (Aladdin); being a part of that tradition, speaking of traditions, is the coolest gift I’ve ever been given as a performer.”
