July 23rd, 2019.
We’re almost eight months into this year, and finally - FINALLY - through a year dominated by Disney events ranging from sub-par, to bad, to worse, to impressive-but-not-quite…. there is a legitimate front-runner for Most Enjoyable Premiere Of The Year… With four cast members (all of them fantastic and friendly), the writer of most of the franchise, and the director of this one in attendance…. and even more amazingly, it was at the Curzon Mayfair!
Here’s how it went down:
And then, suddenly……
So… that was that. A genuinely fun premiere in London - with cast who wanted to be there, generally good views, fun photography, nice people to hang around (fans, photographers and even the odd person who just came for this particular premiere)… and for a movie whose trailer is absolutely enough to make me look forward to seeing it.
Usually after a terrible premiere, I’m torn between immediately wanting another one bury the bad memories and/or NEVER going to another one ever again. Here? It was so good I want to bask in the recollection of how good this hobby can be sometimes and not replace it with another TOO soon.
And that’s rare. Until next time!
