Anne Hathaway thinks her three-year-old will love seeing her star in The Sesame Street Movie.
Speaking with USA Today the accomplished actor said her son Jonathan would be "thrilled" to see her on the big screen alongside the characters he watches on TV, but he's a little too young to grasp what his mother does. So, in a way, this is the perfect time for her to jump into such a project.
"Three is such a psychedelic age," Hathaway said. "So I don’t think it would surprise him if he came to visit Mommy and she was working with Cookie Monster. He’s at that age where that would be completely normal and possible."
With that in mind, the Oscar-winning actress is can't hide the fact that she loves the show — she's actually a big fan of the character Snuffleupagus. She's not the only one in her family either. Apparently, the show is on frequently in her home. Still, this won't be the first time Hathaway appeared alongside Sesame Street characters either. In fact, she appeared on an episode of the show in 2009 to sing "I Want A Snuffy For Christmas" alongside Big Bird, and of course, Snuffleupagus.
Directed by Jonathan Krisel, known for his work on Portlandia, The Sesame Street Movie will be a musical and Hathaway will star as a real-life person — not a Muppet. Set to release in January 2021, the movie will also be the third theatrical movie release for the franchise after 1985's Follow That Bird and 1999's The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland.
While Hathaway will take to the big screen, the characters of the show recently took to the streets of New York to celebrate 50 years of Sesame Street where the city erected a permanent sign at the intersection of Broadway and 63rd Street. Characters like Big Bird, The Count, Elmo, and others joined Mayor Bill de Blasio for the ceremony, and they even posed for the press!
Hathaway is an accomplished actress who, at the age of 36-years old has done it all. We think her resume, which also includes a role as Cat Woman in 2012 hit The Dark Knight Rises will be one full of roles her son will brag to his friends about at almost any age in his life.
