Here's a Cute Clip From Jonathan Groff's Brand New Netflix Series Lost Ollie

The Glee, Frozen, and Looking alum is lending his voice talents to Netflix's latest limited series Lost Ollie.

Jonathan Groff is lending his voice talents to a brand new -- and extremely adorable -- Netflix limited series!

The out actor, best known for starring in projects like Looking, Glee, and the Frozen films, is now voicing the titular role in the streamer's latest effort Lost Ollie. Based on the 2016 children's book Ollie's Odyssey by Oscar-winning writer and illustrator William Joyce, the 4-part miniseries (which combines CGI animation with live-action acting) tells the story of a lost stuffed rabbit named Ollie who, with the help of some other misplaced toy friends, is trying to find his way back to his home -- and most importantly, his best friend and family.

And Out has an exclusive first-look clip!

In the minute-long clip, Groff's Ollie is on the search for a way home to his best friend Billy (Kesler Talbot) with the help of a couple of other misplaced toys, specifically Zozo the Clown (Tim Blake Nelson) and a pink teddy bear with an eyepatch (and some other mismatched body parts) named Rosy (voiced by the legendary Mary J. Blige). Just when Ollie seems like he's about to give up hope trying to get back to his beloved Billy, Zozo points out their saving grace from a distance: a steam train going in the right direction (or as Ollie and Zozo mistakenly and adorably call it, a "Mark Twain").

From the looks of it, Lost Ollie is the wholesome, fun antidote we need amidst all of the ongoing chaos of the world right now.

"A patchwork rabbit with floppy ears and fuzzy memories embarks on an epic quest to find his best friend -- the young boy he desperately loves," the series' official description reads.

Lost Ollie premieres on Netflix on August 24!
