We Can Be Heroes' young stars have also been celebrating the movie's success. Both Vivien Lyra Blair (Guppy) and YaYa Gosselin (Missy Moreno) have shared the news in their Instagram Stories, which you can view here and here. ComicBook.com recently had the chance to chat with the young stars about the movie, and Gosselin explained why it's important for kids after a rough year.
"I think that in the time that we're in right now, it's hard for kids 'cause they can't go to school and see their friends, and they're like, 'This year sucks,'" Gosselin explained. "And so, I think it was really special that on Christmas day, this movie is gonna come out and I feel like it's giving kids some hope that like things are gonna be okay, and that you can be the leader without having to have these superpowers."
As for Blair, the young actor talked about getting to play the daughter of iconic characters, Sharkboy and Lavagirl.
"I watched the original movie. I think I've watched it three times now," Blair explained when we asked if she'd seen 2005's The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl. "I watched it first when I got the audition, then I watched it when I booked it, then I watched it like halfway through Texas. So, I never watched it before now."
