VIDEO: SHAZAM! STARS: Meet “Mi Shazito” with Zachary Levy, Asher Angel & Jack Dylan Graze

Imagine if you could be a Super Hero with just saying a word?  SHAZAM! and BAM! you have superpowers! Amazing right?

 

That is the case of Billy Batson’s (Angel) character. He is a streetwise 14-year-old foster kid that can turn into a adult Super Hero (Levi) thanks to an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart, Shazam is the adult version of himself  but doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them!

 

The best thing about this movie is that it’s not only about being a superhero, it’s also about family! You will have a tons of fun watching this movie! We promise you!

 

Our reporter Maria Fernanda Viera talked with the stars of the film including Zachary Levi’s mini me (as he call him) “Mi Shazito”.

 

Watch the official trailer here:

 

ABOUT SHAZAM!: David F. Sandberg (“Annabelle: Creation”) directs New Line Cinema’s “Shazam!,” the origin story that stars Zachary Levi (TV’s “Chuck”) as the titular DC Super Hero, along with Mark Strong (the “Kingsman” movies) in the role of Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, and Asher Angel (TV’s “Andi Mack”) as Billy Batson. Peter Safran (“Aquaman,” “The Conjuring” and “Annabelle” films) produced the film.

 

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).

 

“Shazam!” also stars Jack Dylan Grazer (“IT”) as Billy’s best friend and ultimate superhero enthusiast, Freddy, and Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou (“Blood Diamond”) as the Wizard. The cast also includes Faithe Herman (TV’s “This is Us”), Grace Fulton (“Annabelle: Creation”), Ian Chen (TV’s “Fresh Off the Boat”), Jovan Armand (TV’s “Hawaii Five-0”), Marta Milans (TV’s “Killer Women”) and Cooper Andrews (TV’s “The Walking Dead”).

 

Firmly set in the DC universe but with his own distinctly fun, family-centric tone, the screenplay is by Henry Gayden, story by Gayden and Darren Lemke, based on characters from DC. Shazam was created by Bill Parker and C.C. Beck. Jeffrey Chernov, Christopher Godsick, Walter Hamada, Geoff Johns, Adam Schlagman, Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia and Dwayne Johnson served as executive producers.

 

Sandberg’s creative team included his “Annabelle: Creation” director of photography Maxime Alexandre, production designer Jennifer Spence, editor Michel Aller and costume designer Leah Butler. The music is by Benjamin Wallfisch (“Blade Runner 2049,” “IT,” “Annabelle: Creation”).

 

A New Line Cinema presentation, “Shazam!” is set for release beginning April 3, 2019. It will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures.
