Yuri, Lily and Matt, the main characters in the animated series My big friend, Will start a trip to a summer camp. Until then, children were accustomed to communicating with each other at school or in the area where they live. Making new friends there seems to be challenging.

There, they meet Dove Dudum, who at first seems a lot of fun, but the creature wants to tear them apart. This shocking adventure opens in theaters this Thursday, the 12th My big friend – the movie. “Duvi Dudum finally reveals each character’s obstacles, so that viewers can easily understand what they have to face, even if the themes are not so simple and this conflict has a special meaning for each hero”, emphasizes. In an interview with the film’s director, Andres Lebanon Estadao.

In the series, the biggest challenge for children is to deal with their own emotions. Now, they will come across a presentation on how they can face fear and insecurity. In the end, friendship becomes a key element of this process.

“The first decision was made for the series to target audiences, ages 4 to 6, and soon to realize what the major conflicts and pressures in the daily life of this age group are, going through any major changes. Deep down, amygdala is the child’s own subconscious expression, the voice they need to hear, to get to know each other better, and to respect and welcome them as they grow up, “explained Claudia Leiban, co-creator of the series.

The film is scripted by him and Canadian Clive Andersby, with advice from Sesc Rio de Scripts for Cinema Laboratory. To create the characters, the team did extensive research in specialized literature, consulting with educators and psychologists, as well as to understand how educators are instructed to use the theme of fictional friends in a constructive way.

At this age, it is common for children between the ages of 4 and 6 to start appearing for the first time in social circles outside their comfort zone, where they are accustomed to being the center of attention and have facilities that are not appropriate. The film addresses this social and psychological aspect, among others, as children question the ways in which they deal with previously unknown emotions.

Another concern of the team was to show the children without setting an example to follow the villain Dove Dudum, especially for viewers who are still building its value.

“The only villain in the series was the coexistence conflict that children had to resolve. Like most preschool series, the image of the villain is avoided because it is easy for him to become a misleading reference when ethics or the sense of right and wrong is still being created “, analyzes Andres Lebanon.

Unpublished songs help tell stories, walking through different emotions. The entire soundtrack was recorded by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. “The film promotes a sequence of relevant experiences and feelings for our viewers and the adults who come with them, from beginning to end,” the director added.

We humans make up stories. In adult life, they are responsible for our memory, good or bad. In childhood, the same thing happens. “We all like stories, we read books, go to the theater, watch movies or soap operas, listen to music or describe our experiences as true storytellers. This interest in one way or another fuels our social survival. When we tell a story to a child that is sensitive to what might upset or provoke them, it is no different, “said Lebanon.

Inside My Friends – Movies, Children can relate different things to their own experiences. “Among other things, we wanted to talk about distance, aspiration and the joy of reunion, we don’t know if we will go through the epidemic. After all, it is a universal theme that is expressed to any child, but it gains a new meaning in the present time when friends often use movie theaters to meet again after a long time without face-to-face contact. “, He said.

Many parents are now starting to go out with their children with the progress of vaccination against Kovid-19. It was two years with virtually little social interaction among the little ones. “Imagine, then, the children who were born early in captivity and now have the opportunity to realize that the boundaries of the earth are much larger than the walls of their homes. But the series My friend It’s always been about that: developing social skills so you can make friends and make friends. “
