Josh Gad is opening up about why he started his YouTube series, Reunited Apart, and we can’t seem to let it go. (Sorry, had to.)
PureWow recently sat down for an exclusive interview with the 39-year-old actor, who shared brand-new details about Reunited Apart. Gad created the show as a form of at-home entertainment, bringing together casts of iconic movies in a virtual setting while simultaneously giving back to charities. Although it has turned into a must-watch production, the Frozen star revealed that his two children—Ava (9) and Isabella (6)—were his original muses.
“Reunited Apart was inspired by my kids—watching all the movies I grew up with and celebrating these incredibly important films and seeing their responses for the first time,” he told PureWow.
As someone who enjoys bonding with his family through entertainment, Gad has a standing appointment at his daughter’s school, where he reads Harry Potter to the class. When the coronavirus pandemic hit, the actor started looking for similar ways to connect with children.
