Brigsby Bear Adventures is a children’s TV show produced for an audience of one: James (Kyle Mooney). When the show abruptly ends, James’s life changes forever. He sets out to finish the story himself and must learn to cope with the realities of a new world that he knows nothing about.
BRIGSBY BEAR is one of the most Honest, Sincere, & Infectiously Fun movies you’ll see in a long time. Co-written and starring Saturday Night Live’s Kyle Mooney and directed by SNL’s Dave McCary (whom Kyle met in 4th Grade; they have been working together ever since – co-writer Kevin Costello came much later…in the 7th Grade), BRIGSBY BEAR will open in the US on July 28. “BRIGSBY BEAR is a film about friendship, family and nostalgia,” Kyle Mooney. (It is also about a man-sized teddy bear who repeatedly saves the galaxy with his twin-sister sidekicks, as well as super heroes, goodness, fantasy, pop-culture, imagination, dreams, fandom, creativity, and….)
Brigsby Bear is an exhilarating viewing experience. There’s a genuine sweetness to Mooney’s performance, and the entire movie.

Brigsby Bear understands what it feels like to have an attachment to a certain piece of pop culture that is deeper, perhaps disturbingly so, than anyone around you.

Brigsby Bear will reaffirm your belief in the positive powers of imagination, and will make you feel good all over.
