MEET ELIJAH KELLEY (“SUNNY”) AND MEREDITH ANNE BULL (“DAWN”) from the movie strange magic #Strangemagic
My son and I had the opportunity to meet and interview Elijah Kelley (“Sunny”) and Meredith Anne Bull (“Dawn”) and we were very impressed with how nice they are. They are both down to earth and friendly. The interview, mostly done by junior reporters took place at the Disney Studios Building and the stars were warm and welcoming.
You might recognize Elijah Kelly from Hairspray. Red Tails and Lee Daniels' The Butler. He is an actor, singer and dancer. Elijah's character, Sunny is an elf that is in love with Marianne’s sister, Dawn. Sunny is funny and a very good friend, but Dawn cannot see Sunny pass the friend zone. Sunny ends up being brave and fearless as he tries to rescue Dawn.
Meredith Anne Bull has been in the movie Good Intentions and Harold. She is an actress and singer. Meredith's character in the movie, Dawn is a fairy princess, and Marianne’s little sister. She is really flirtatious and only sees Sunny as a friend.
