Celeb Secrets: We’re so excited for the world premiere of your new movie. Can you give us a little recap of what we can expect from the movie?

Brianna Denski: “The movie will be fun filled and adventurous. It’s really great to watch, family friendly and all the good stuff you’d expect. Heartfelt scenes. Stuff like that.”

CS: Can you tell us a little bit about your character and what we can expect from her?

BD: “My character is a strong, imaginative little girl who’s not afraid to take on the world.”

CS: Your character is all about building her dream theme park in the movie and is able to make it come to life. Did you have a favorite theme park that you would go to growing up?

BD: “When I was growing up we’d always go to Lake Compound. It was very close to my house. I have a lot of fun memories there. I would go there every summer whenever I had free time.”

CS: If you had your own dream park and it came to life, what would you like to have in it?

BD: “The absolute scariest roller coaster that only the very bravest people would ever ride.”

CS: Your co-stars are some really big names in Hollywood. Jennifer Garner actually plays your mom, which is so crazy. Tell us a little bit about that. Did you get to meet any of them while working on the movie?

BD: “Unfortunately I didn’t due to the fact that it’s voiceover, however I really wish I did.”

CS: If you do get to meet them, maybe at the premiere coming up this Sunday, what would you want to say to Jennifer or any of the other cast members?

BD: “Honestly it would be about how it’s a really big honor to meet them. Mila Kunis and Jennifer Garner have been my acting role models since I was younger. It’d be a really big moment for me.”

CS: If you could describe the movie in three words, what would they be?

BD: “Adventurous, full-filled, action-packed. And entertaining. There’s four.”

CS: Since we are Celeb Secrets, do you have any fun memories or behind the scenes secrets from working on the movie in the recording studio or anything like that?

BD: “My favorite behind the scenes secret is that my real life friend that I use for inspiration for all the heartfelt scenes, like the scene where I had to connect with another human being… we’re actually not friends anymore.”
