STORKS flies into theaters on September 23th
It is not the common story line for a movie. It is not the fairy tale or the animated movie that really does not tell a story. Storks is a movie with a great message of friendship and family.
Learn about the actors
It was a super fun Saturday morning. My son @nicolasjourney was given the opportunity to play junior reporter and he prepared well for his role. He actually wrote down questions and was brave enough to ask them. Here is a recap of his questions and the answers from the actors from the movie.
NicolasJourney: Is it difficult to play the villain of this movie?
Mr. Kelsey Grammer: Nah, it's like water off a duck's back. That's the kind of hairpin I am. I'm good at playing bad guys because I'm also good at playing good guys. I understand the human experience, and that's been my devotion for a long time now. So, that's why it's water off a duck's back.
NicolasJourney: How difficult was the casting process for this movie?
Mr. Brad Lewis: Well, what do you think?
Mr. Doug Sweetland: Difficult.
Mr. Nicholas Stoller: The movie took years, so it kind of stretches out over the period of time in making the movie. Both Katie and Steve Glickman, who does Pigeon Toady, we both cast them as scratch actors who were supposed to be temporary voice actors, basically, at the beginning, but they were so good we ended up casting them. And then we very quickly--like, listening to, like, Danny Trejo's voice, we were like, "He has such"--it's like funny to imagine that character having kind of a gravely, scary voice and it just being this very sweet character. And so, it wasn't actually that hard.
Mr. Doug Sweetland: I don't think so either. The studio, Warner Bros., was really open to casting ideas and Katie is really new, this is her first big movie, taking essentially an unknown who so is the character and letting her just be that character. So, you know, Warner Bros. gave us a really wide berth.
NicolasJourney: It seems that the trend on Hollywood lately is about female characters that are heroines. How do you feel about your character being a role model for so many kids, especially girls out there?
Ms. Katie Crown: I feel great. Yes, I hope they like her. I think she's a really cool character. It's nice playing someone who's really fun, affable, but also super smart. She's an inventor. She builds this great plane. You know, she's got a lot of good ideas. It's really fun being able to play someone like that.
Mr. Andy Samberg: Good question.
Ms. Katie Crown: Yes, excellent.
Did we like the movie?
Yes we did. We found it sweet, funny, it has its hilarious moments. Without any spoilers, I can tell you that Storks delivers more than babies. How do you know that we actually liked a movie? When we are making plans to go see it again when it comes out on theaters.
Be in the lookout for the scene with the penguins and a sleeping baby. The movie hits close to reality when dealing with babies and family situations. Although it is super funny it also has its sentimental moments that might get you with teary eyes.
