Build-A-Bear Entertainment and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Film Features Music From The Grammy® Winning Team And Shows How We Are ‘Better Together’
ST. LOUIS, 1 Dec. 2021 // PRNewswire // – Honey Girls, a new music-focused live-action film based on the popular Build-A-Bear IP and product line of the same name, recently premiered to a positive response from fans with over 115 million media impressions in its first week of release and now over 90 million social media impressions. This family wellness film presents an inspiring and uplifting message about the importance of friendship, being true to yourself and how we are “better together”.
With the vast majority of fans giving it a 5-star rating on Amazon, the film makes a perfect family movie night for the holidays as it follows the story of three young musicians from different backgrounds who take part in a competition at the search for the “next big thing”, hosted by superstar Fancy G. However, these three contestants quickly discover that they are “better together”. To avoid being detected and eliminated from the competition, they form a secret group and perform while wearing masks, calling themselves the “HONEY GIRLS”. Their first song becomes an immediate viral mega-hit, creating close contact with Fancy G and forcing them to ultimately decide what is more important – fame or friendship.
The film’s multigenerational appeal is further enhanced by Grammy Award®-winning singer / songwriter and actor Ashanti as superstar Fancy G, and digital star Tessa Brooks as executive assistant. With five original songs written by Mark Nilan, Jr., frequent collaborator of Lady Gaga, and music supervisor Julia Michels, best known for projects like A Star is Born and the Pitch Perfect franchise, the catchy soundtrack is one that all the family will love it! The three “HONEY GIRLS” are played by young talent, Ava Grace as Charlie (disguised as Risa), Frankie McNellis as Alex (disguised as Teegan) and Aliyah Mastin as Maya (disguised as Viv).
Since the film’s release, the Honey Girls plush collection that inspired the story has seen double-digit sales increases. Honey Girls fans can purchase new versions of the original plush characters, Risa (bunny), Teegan (tiger), and Viv (bear), at the Build-A-Bear Workshop locations, on buildabear.com, or through the Bear Workshop Builder 3D, the new interactive and experiential e-commerce site from Build-A-Bear. Each purchase of a Honey Girls plush character comes with a movie download code, making it the perfect holiday gift!
