Brigsby Bear, one of the most innovative and heartwarming stories of the summer, tells the story of James Pope, an adult male who was abducted when he was a child and has grown up loving a television show that was unknowingly filmed just for him . When the show suddenly ends after his whereabouts are discovered, James sets out on a quest to finish it himself.
Full of heart, emotion and nostalgia, Brigsby Bear cautiously straddles the line between comedy and drama, perfectly giving us a story that seems authentic. Featuring an all-star cast where nearly everyone is “someone”, the film pulls you in from the onset as you witness a miraculous evolution in our lead protagonist.
We were fortunate to sit down with Kyle Mooney and Mark Hamill, two of the film’s stars to talk everything Brigsby - including just how Hamill got his face in the sun for his turn as Sun Snatcher.
