Stop everything you are doing — ABC president Paul Lee just hinted that Once Upon A Time could bring a Frozen spin-off!
“We don’t have immediate plans for a Frozen spinoff, but they’re so inventive, those two…” Paul told EOnline at the TCA Press Tour earlier this morning (July 15), referring to executive producers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis.
He added, “Eddy and Adam are endlessly inventive, so they have glints in their eyes of stories that they can spin for years to come. So it certainly doesn’t rule out their ability or my ability to go beyond Once…Frozen is a wonderful asset. John Lassiter (executive producer of the Frozen film), himself flew up to Vancouver, he’s integrally related to the way we’re doing that. Adam and Eddy always have a twist on every story, so you can imagine their twist is going to be very different. But no, I think it’s the perfect time. We’re thrilled with it.”
The video is just a teaser for Disney Channel’s upcoming Frozen-themed weekend hosted by Josh Gad aka Olaf, who likes warm hugs.
The new pop arrangement of the song will debut Friday, July 18th on Radio Disney with a music video coming on Sunday, July 20th. (Verified users on the WATCH Disney Channel app will get the video on Friday).
The first was “Why didn’t we think of him for our dream casting?” (we promptly knocked our heads after that) and the second reaction was completely joy. We had a mini-dance party in our offices about the news.
Scott, 29, was kind enough to let us ask a few questions about his upcoming role on the ABC show and even a few about his recurring status as Leo on Chasing Life. Check out what he dished below!
JustJaredJr.com: Congrats on getting the role of Kristoff! Tell us how you prepared for your audition and how you celebrated after.
Scott Michael Foster: Well, I watched the movie with my nieces and nephews about a dozen times so I REALLY got to know who Kristoff was before the audition. I celebrated with my family, who happened to be in town when I found out I got the role, at a wonderful restaurant in beautiful downtown Studio City.
JJJ: Everyone is a closet Frozen fan. How many times did you watch it?

TVLine reports that the 29-year-old actor, who currently recurs on Chasing Life, will take on the role of Arendelle’s official ice master and new love of Princess Anna, who is played by newcomer Elizabeth Lail.
We first meet Kristoff as he’s adjusting to life inside the castle — and sleeping indoors for the first time in his life. Princess Anna is still her fun-loving self (see also: every one’s favorite Princess), who “often gets herself into situations where she is in over her head, yet is able to triumph due to her resourcefulness and can-do spirit.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK about the castings of Anna and Kristoff? Do you approve?
Idina Menzel hits the stage to perform at her sold out concert held at the famed Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Monday evening (June 16).
The 43-year-old entertainer sang a selection of her best known hits – like Frozen‘s “Let It Go,” Wicked‘s “Defying Gravity,” and Rent‘s “Take Me or Leave Me” – along with cover songs that ranged from Radiohead to Ethel Merman and U2 to Joni Mitchell. It sure was one amazing night of music!
The concert took place just over one week after the 2014 Tony Awards, where she was nominated for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for her work in the new show If/Then. Unfortunately, she lost the award, so Idina decided to give the acceptance speech she would have given had she won that night. Watch that video on
