I was invited to sunny California last week to enjoy a three day event, getting to know more about Peter Rabbit Movie, while enjoying super fun activities!
I will be sharing it all with you here on the blog, but I wanted to start with the cast interview, which, for me, was the highlight of my trip!
A garden setting with sunny background and chairs set around it to welcome the conversation about how the movie was made with a stellar cast and the director!
Yes, a very intimate press conference with 20+ members of the press and children who had a chance to interview and hear all the fun stories about how the movie was conceived and came to life, blending priceless performances with animation to give you that front row seat inside Beatrice Potter’s world!
Director: Will Gluck
Some of my Peter Rabbit Cast Interview favorite moments were:
” I love that when when we were recording, they recorded us, so when I looked at the animation later, I could sort of see us in the live animation of the bunnies, which is a lovely thing to see!”
- “So much of this is their personalities…..We had so many sessions, so many times to rewrite it….what we thought Beatrice Potter would kind of smile down on us. Does this make sense in her world. We were religious in that regard.”
- “Ideal age range: 2-98, you will never feel left out.”
- “After 3 minutes you will forget these animals are computer generated. The characters come to life and you can see the actors in them, because of the amazing animation job.”
- “The animation process was back and forth with the voice recording … Constantly evolving, which made the whole thing feel very organic, because it was always moving and evolving.”
- “My son said: “what I took out of it was that everybody makes mistakes, but what’s important is how you react after the mistakes.” I thought it was a wonderful message.”
- About Carpool Karaoke with animals:” I would do with all the animals … and we would sing a whole collection with songs which have animals in it, who let the dogs out … songs with animal base in them.”
“The lisp was always in the script. I loved it, tough … it’s quite endearing about a character with a lisp … “I always enjoy playing someone who is different from myself … saying things I wouldn’t say … ”
“The aim with the film is to make children laugh, happy.”
