Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame will be unveiled Tuesday honoring Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell, three days before the release of “Frozen 2” where they reprise their roles of Queen Elsa and Princess Anna.
Josh Gad, Jackie Tohn, Michael Schur and Alan Horn are set to join Menzel and Bell in speaking at the 11:30 a.m. ceremony in front of the Pantages Theatre.
Gad supplied the voice of Olaf in “Frozen” and “Frozen 2.” Tohn appeared in episodes of “Veronica Mars,” “House of Lies” and “The Good Place” with Bell, along with the 2017 film comedy “CHiPS.” Schur created and is an executive producer of “The Good Place,” the NBC comedy in which Bell co-stars in with Ted Danson.
Horn is chief creative officer and co-chairman of Walt Disney Studios, which includes Walt Disney Animation Studios, which produced “Frozen 2.”
The stars are the 2,681st and 2,682nd since the completion of the Walk of Fame in 1961 with the first 1,558 stars.
“The Hollywood Walk of Fame makes an extra special effort to pair artists who work together or are related with their stars next to each other,” said Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Menzel won a best actress in a musical Tony in 2004 for her portrayal of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, in “Wicked.” She initially gained fame for her role as performance artist Maureen Johnson in “Rent,” which brought her a best featured actress in a musical Tony nomination in 1996.
Menzel also received a best actress in a musical Tony nomination in 2014 for “If/Then,” where she portrayed a newly divorced 38-year-old urban planner who returns to New York City for a fresh start.
Menzel sang “Let it Go” in “Frozen,” which won the best original song Oscar in 2014 and the 2015 Grammy for best song written for visual medium.
Bell first became known in 2004 for her starring role in the UPN teen noir mystery drama “Veronica Mars,” which ran until 2007, and spawned a 2014 film and 2019 Hulu reboot. She received a Golden Globe nomination in 2018 for best performance by an actress in a television series, musical or comedy for her work in “The Good Place.”
Bell also appeared in the films “Bad Moms” and its sequel “A Bad Moms Christmas” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”
