The week leading up to the show on my brother’s disappearance was a rough one… The kind where you just need a big ‘ol hug from your best friend. So, when Alex and I were offered a road trip to Los Angeles to screen the movie Earth to Echo with our kids at the famous Grauman’s Chinese theater in Hollywood, stay in a hotel with adjoining rooms and then have our kids interview the cast of Earth to Echo the next day, it went above and beyond the much needed embrace to a trip of a lifetime!
Since Alex and I have known each other since we were in 4th grade, it was a fitting film for this trip as the story follows four childhood friends that find an adorable robot-like creature during an adventure on their last night in their neighborhood before it’s taken away.
Having done several celebrity interviews myself, to watch my three older kids (ages 10, 8 and 5) and Alex’s two kids (ages 8 and 5) in action as THE reporters was an absolute, teary eyed blast! Not only did they prepare their questions in advance, they quickly overcame their fears of meeting four movies stars that they had just watched on the big screen! So what types of questions did they ask? Watch the short clip below of our very own Breezy Mama junior reporters interviewing Teo Halm (Alex), Brian “Astro” Bradley (Tuck), Reese Hartwig (Munch) and Ella Linnea Wahlestedt (Emma) here:
Earth to Echo opens in theaters every where July 2.
