A couple days ago we had the pleasure to receive an invitation to watch the advance screening for Clifford the Big Red Dog and we also attended a virtual event to meet the actors of the movie.
Clifford the Big Read Dog has been in every kids shelving for years, and now you can enjoy it on the big screen in Canada on November 10, thanks to e-One film. Based on the Scholastic Book Series “Clifford the Big Red Dog” by Norman Bridwell, this movie is directed by Walt Becker, and is a family movie you don’t want to miss!
Clifford the Big Red Dog is a story about this little girl called Emily (Darby Camp) who meets a magical animal rescuer in the park. The rescuer gifted her a beautiful red puppy that suddenly grows into this giant dog the next morning. Emily’s mom (who is a single mom) is away on a business trip, and she and her Uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) start this crazy adventure around the city with Clifford. Based on the beloved Scholastic book character, Clifford will teach the world how to love big!
This family friendly movie has also lots of great messages. They touch different topics from bully to single mom struggles, to friendship, to trust. My favourite part was about the importance of believing in magic, and to listen to your gut. It also opened the door to speak with Mia about the struggles and challenges that she can face at school.
It was also so fun to attend the event and meet virtually the actors. They were so down to earth and responded to all the questions. They talk about the importance of reaching out for help when you are being bully, and talked about kindness.
Starring: Jack Whitehall, Darby Camp, Tony Hale, Sienna Guillory, David Alan Grier, Russell Wong, and John Cleese
