Jason Momoa will be the voice Frosty the Snowman, bringing him to life in an upcoming live-action remake as a new computer-generated version of Frosty.

David Berenbaum, who wrote the classic Christmas movie Elf, is penning the new Frosty script, with Jon Berg, Greg Silverman, Geoff Johns and Momoa as producers. Berg said in a statement, “From his role as a fearsome count in a land of ice and fire to the oceanic success we all had with Aquaman, it felt only right to realize Jason this time out of snow.” Silverman added, “we know Jason’s as a true human being filled with love, compassion and a deep connection to ohana – all of which is the living spirit of Xmas and Frosty.”

The classic character made his animated debut in the 1969, based on the 1950s Christmas song of the same name.
