Frozen's Kristen Bell & Jonathan Groff Reunite for Another Musical!

Frozen couple Kristen Bell and Jonathan Groff are reuniting for another movie musical!

The new movie is titled Molly and the Moon, and will see Kristen as Kate, Molly’s mom, while Jonathan will play Molly’s dad Brian. The film is about a “couple who are expecting a child and sing to their unborn baby in the womb. But the film also takes us inside the womb and imagines a little girl in a rowboat singing back and using the sound of her parents’ voices to try and reach ‘the moon,’ or a metaphor for being born,” according to The Wrap.

The story is based on Craig‘s real life son, Elliot, who was born with Jacobsen Syndrome, a rare genetic condition that caused him and his wife to not be able to hold him after his birth due to an urgent heart surgery. The couple sang to their son instead.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Told 'Hamilton' Editors to Keep Jonathan Groff's Spit in the Film!

When the Hamilton movie was released a few weeks ago, everyone couldn’t stop talking about Jonathan Groff and his spit.

The 35-year-old Tony-nominated actor plays King George in the filmed version of the Broadway musical and he’s known for spitting while he sings, which is something that viewers can clearly see in the movie.

Jonathan is aware that he spits while singing and has even commented on it in the past.

Now, the film’s co-executive producer Jon Kamen is opening up about how editors were ready to use visual effects to remove the spit, but Lin-Manuel Miranda and his team wanted to keep it in!

“We said don’t worry we can clean that up — they were like ‘No, leave it!,’” Kamen told IndieWire.

See how people are reacting to the spit.

Hamilton's Jonathan Groff Is Aware That He Spits While Singing, Plus Fans Are Reacting!

Jonathan Groff‘s performance as King George in Hamilton was captured for the movie that is debuting on Disney+ this weekend and one detail of his work has a lot of fans talking.

The 35-year-old actor tends to spit while he is singing and he is well aware!

“I spit a lot onstage,” Jonathan told Variety last year. “I’ve always been a spitter … I start sweating. I just get wet when I perform onstage. It is just what happens.”

Jonathan played the role of Seymour in the off-Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors last year and his spit often hit the fans since the theater was so tiny.

“For the first couple weeks of the run I felt bad, because I’d walk down to the end of the stage in the second song of the show, ‘Skid Row,’ and I can’t help it, I’m just, like, spitting on everyone. And they’re either enjoying it, or they’re laughing, or they’re holding up their programs to block their face,” Jonathan said. “I don’t care anymore, but it made me feel self-conscious at first. I’d never been so close to the audience where I was actually seeing the reaction on people’s face while I spat on them!”

Learn about the one moment of the show that is captured in the film, but now on the soundtrack.
