WATCH: Josh Gad's "Reunited Apart" YouTube Series Gathers Iconic Film And TV Casts For Feel-Good Interviews
He's featured the casts of 'The Lord of The Rings,' 'Back to the Future,' 'The Goonies,' 'Ghostbusters,' 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' among others—need we say more?
Just when you thought you'd watched everything the Internet had to offer during quarantine, Josh Gad—a.k.a. the voice actor who plays Frozen's Olaf and the the rather talented singer who portrays Disney's LeFou (Gaston's queer sidekick) live action remake of Beauty and the Beast—gives us movie and TV geeks something to look forward to.
He launched a YouTube channel in April and a couple of months after, gave us with a true gift from the digital the world that be made possible by the Internet. He created YouTube series Reunited Apart, first to ease Covid-19 woes of not being able to physically be with loved ones, and secondly, to cheer us up with the best that pop culture can offer.
As the series' name suggests, it has every bit to do with reunions—but they're not just any reunions.
Blessed by the gods of Hollywood, Josh miraculously managed to gather entire casts of some of the most iconic movies and shows of the 20th century! The guys of heavyweight titles like The Lord of the Rings, Splash, The Goonies, and the original Ghostbusters have all appeared on the web series and for many of them, the reunion-slash-interviews in one were the first time they'd "gotten together" in years.
The nostalgia is palapable.
Best of all, the series isn't just for purely entertainment purposes, but double as fundraisers for pandemic-related organizations and social reform causes, too.
Now to make things extra easy for you, we've gathered all episode's of Reunited Apart's first season (definitely glad the show will be an ongoing project!).
