I mean, she doesn’t entirely understand what’s going on. I think that my daughter thinks that her Olaf doll is some form of black magic. That Daddy is somehow throwing his voice into this little teddy bear. Because sometimes she’ll press it and I’ll be standing there, not moving my mouth and it’s like some sick ventriloquist is doing some weird dummy show for his daughter.
But Ava’s smart. She got it the second she saw the Frozen teaser in a movie theater. I took her to see ‘Monsters University .’ And the teaser trailer for ‘Frozen’ didn’t have any dialogue. It only had my laugh. But as soon as she heard that laugh coming off of the screen, Ava looked at me and said ‘That’s Dadda,’ Josh concluded. “I swear to God that I had never explained it to her. I had never told her ‘Your Dad’s in a Disney movie’ because Ava’s only 2 1/2 and she doesn’t understand Disney or movie. But the fact of the matter is that she knew that voice coming off that movie screen was her Dad. And now, that’s how Ava identifies the characters from ‘Frozen.’ First there’s Elsa, then Anna and finally Daddy.”
