Brigsby Bear (2017)
Thursday 29th March 2018
Dave McCary (writer and director at Saturday Night Live) makes his directorial debut with Brigsby Bear, "a truly original and remarkably touching comedy" (Ben Barna, NYLON). Co-written by Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live, Zoolander 2) and Kevin Costello, Mooney stars as James, a young man whose world has just been turned upside down and as he transitions into his new life he relies on a children's show he grew up with to get him through.
Brigsby Bear also stars Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Claire Danes (Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Homeland), Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® Award-winning Greg Kinnear (Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, Modern Family), Emmy® nominated Matt Walsh (Veep) and Michaela Watkins (Casual, Transparent). Brigsby Bear is available to Download & Keep on 2nd April 2018 and debuts on DVD on 16th April 2018.
Bonus materials on the DVD and digital release of Brigsby Bear include: Twin Speak: Kyle & Dave, a featurette in which Kyle Mooney and Dave McCary reflect on their creative partnership that spans from grade school to Saturday Night Live; An Evening with Brigsby Bear, featuring a Q&A featuring Kyle Mooney, Dave McCary, Mark Hamill and more; The Wisdom of Brigsby Bear, a collection of life lessons from Brigsby himself; plus, a filmmaker commentary and hilarious gag reel. On the exclusive digital release, fans can get more with deleted and extended scenes as well as a coveted lost episode of the Brigsby Bear series entitled The Festival of Kindness.
James has grown up with the kids' show Brigsby Bear and the programme has grown with him as well. One dramatic night, James' insular world is upended. Upon learning the series has been cancelled, he adopts the old adage that the show must go on. By becoming Brigsby Bear's new creator, James finally builds meaningful connections his life has lacked.
