Trivia

Following the world premiere at Sundance Film Festival 2017 at the Eccles theatre during the Q&A, the cast were asked what attracted them to the project. Mark Hamill talked about how much he liked the script and the originality of the story, but also joked: 'Also, I actually had lines. You know, that's always a bonus for me'. This is a reference to the fact that all of his lines were cut from Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). See more »

Weird and Brilliant at the Same Time..

Brigsby Bear Adventures is a children's TV show produced for an audience of one: James. When the show abruptly ends, James's life changes forever, and he sets out to finish the story himself. This film was such a refreshing and cool idea about a kid who wants to make a film and as someone who once almost made a film of his own this film inspired me alot and there's an entire twist from the beginning that i don't want to spoil. The perfomances are brilliant especially from Kyle Mooney, Greg Kinnear and the great Mark Hamill. This is a sweet comedy and drama about the importance of filmmaking, parenthood and being accepted for who you are. (A+)
