Last Saturday my girls and I were invited to hang out on the red carpet at The Angry Birds Movie Premier. A few months ago I got a sneak peek at a few scenes and laughed my head off while listening to the cast talk about the new movie. I could not wait to see the movie in it's entirety, I knew my whole family would love it! And they did. My favorite part of watching a movie with my kids, is hearing them laugh and scream during a movie. It's like all of a sudden they're real people and not babies. We're finally at a point where we can watch a movie together.
About the Movie
The Angry Birds Movie is a 3D animated comedy that many people are anxiously awaiting. We'll finally find out why the birds are so angry.
The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds - or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it's up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.
Say HELLO to the cast of The Angry Birds Movie
From left to right, Keegan-Michael Key, Producer John Cohen, Billy Eichner, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, Josh Gad, Blake Shelton, Maya Rudolph, John Heder and Jason Sudeikis. Casting is superb! Everyone brings their character to life in such a fun way and if you're a fan of the game, it's even more fun to see the characters you already know. Personally, my favorites are Chuck and Red.
Red Carpet Fun
My girls, okay me too, had so much fun getting to hold and pet all these different exotic birds and even a little piggy. They were not angry at all, they were very friendly. Also, as part of the excitement of being on the red carpet, we had to dodge flying birds while a life size Angry Birds game was going on. SO, there was an even more amazing AFTER PARTY that we were invited to and it was a street carnival full of fun and games. Unfortunately, my phone decided to flip out on me and I didn't get to capture any of that fun. But, it was so much fun. We got to hang out with the stars of the movie while all the kids jumped in the ball pit, colored on a wall sized Angry Birds coloring sheet, and ate all the food and sweets they could have asked for.
The animals were brought to the red carpet from Reptacular Animals.
