Most friends I've asked can remember the first movie they saw in the theatre. My mom took me when I was four and it was probably one of my first memories. Thanks to Nickelodeon, we had the fun opportunity to attend a screening of the film, Ferdinand. We invited my friend from college, Dana, and her daughter Star to come along for Jack's
first movie in the theatre!
Star let Jack choose where we would sit and we got settled with our popcorn. Jack literally sat at the edge of his seat the entire time and laughed out loud a lot. Seeing his face light up and turn towards me at various points in the movie made me so happy to have Ferdinand be the first film for him in the theatre. It was an inspiring tale about
choosing love, doing the right thing, and not being afraid to be yourself. When we were walking out, Jack said, "I want to see it again!" Star said she loved the whole movie, especially the end, and I agree with both of them. I don't think this is a spoiler alert, but you will want to stay through the credits!
Then we went to a studio where Nickelodeon recreated a set that was an obstacle course inspired by the "bull in a china shop" scene from Ferdinand.
I put on the bull sumo suit with the assistance of two others and waddled my way onto the set. It was such a fun experience overall and Jack and Star got to take some stuffies as well as the book!
Jack even took his first nap in weeks on our way home and we had the most magical sunset.
Relive the fun with us in this video:
Let me know if you check out Ferdinand in theatres December 15!
