Yesterday my kids and I had an amazing opportunity we were able to interview Elijah Kelley (“Sunny”) and Meredith Anne Bull (“Dawn”) from the movie Strange Magic.
SUNNY is an elf with a big heart and a serious crush on his best friend Dawn. Though full of spunk with energy to spare, Sunny doesn’t have the guts to share his true feelings for Dawn. “I think we can all relate to Sunny,” says Rydstrom. “He’ll do anything for Dawn—including setting her up with other guys— because he secretly hopes that someday she’ll love him too.”
DAWN is a li le ﬂighty—even for a fairy. Boy crazy and naïve, Dawn is the super opposite of her big sister Marianne. “Dawn is in love—with love,” says Rydstrom. “She’s a big ﬂirt. Every day she has a new crush, hoping that—just maybe—he’s the one.”
I mean I get to do interviews all the time but this time was super special because I was able to bring my kids along. My daughter actually did the entire interview starting off with the very first question that she came up with on her own.
“How were you able to sing so enthusiastically?”
Elijah said it’s like when you play pretend as a child ( of course he answered my daughter saying) “It’s like when you play pretend”…. and then you get excited and your energy gets more and more and it’s a lot of fun…. (not his exact words but that’s what he said paraphrased)
My kids had a blast, I had a blast, I think even Elijah and Meredith Ann had a blast. Miles and Elijah made each other laugh, at first my son was really not into the interview and then Elijah had him going and they were making each other laugh and then building off of each other. It was really a great experience for me and my children.
When they were talking about favorite scenes they also talked about favorite characters, when Zoe told Meredith that her favorite character was The Bug King, Meredith told Zoe she must be a tough girl to like such a tough character. Zoe smiled proudly as I was of her also. At the end of the interview, they both signed autographs for my kids. Elijah signed one for Miles saying, “I can’t wait to see you on the Big Screen”. During the interview we told him that Miles wanted to become an actor and just by looking at his attitude in the room he said “you’re well on your way”. He was really a great guy!
