Older siblings have always wondered about their younger brother or sister…
Being an uncle is not only about spending time with and goofing around with nieces and nephews, but also having a legitimate reason to see the newest animated movie as an adult. It’s true. Having been hooked by JT’s (Justin Timberlake’s) catchy song of the summer, “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” for several months, I was looking forward to seeing the movie that featured this song and those famous, crazy-haired troll dolls my older sisters collected way back when.
“Trolls” is in theaters and, lucky for me, one of my nieces invited me to see the latest film in the DreamWorks film roll. Now, since “Trolls” is still new, no spoilers will follow. Instead, what caught my eye was a preview for a new animation from the same movie studio that might have also caught the eye of my niece. She is an older sister to twin baby boys and, perhaps, the trailer below rang somewhat true with her…
and me as well, the youngest of three kids.
Well played, DreamWorks…well played.
P.S. Apparently, political commentator and former Florida congressman Joe Scarborough is the inspiration for the animated father.
