Clifford The Big Red Dog is a movie that has been in the making for roughly 20 years and the fun finally comes to the big screen on November 10, 2021 when the film releases in theaters and on Paramount+.  I had the pleasure of joining the virtual press junket for this movie where we had the chance to interview the stars as well as those behind-the-scenes.

Clifford The Big Red Dog - Cast Interviews


Darby Camp and Jack Whitehall star in Clifford The Big Red Dog as Emily Elizabeth and Uncle Casey respectively.  I have really enjoyed watching these two in projects over the years and it was delightful to talk with them about their portrayal of their characters in the movie.  




Of course, the biggest star of the movie is none other than Clifford himself!  During the press junket, I had the once-in-a-lifetime experience to meet with Clifford as well and talk with him about the film.  He didn't have as much to share as co-stars Camp and Whitehall, but his enthusiasm is pretty contagious, don't you think?




Clifford The Big Red Dog - Production Interview


I always enjoy the chance to sit down with producers and directors of a film as those conversations add a new layer of appreciation to the movie itself.  Listening to Jordan Kerner and Walt Becker talk about making the film, their passion for the project nearly leaps off the screen.

When middle-schooler Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) meets a magical animal rescuer (John Cleese) who gifts her a little, red puppy, she never anticipated waking up to find a giant ten-foot hound in her small New York City apartment. While her single mom (Sienna Guillory) is away for business, Emily and her fun but impulsive uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) set out on an adventure that will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat as our heroes take a bite out of the Big Apple. Based on the beloved Scholastic book character, Clifford will teach the world how to love big!
