Blue & Company: What would John Krasinski’s imaginary friend look like?

The chance was obviously very good. Since Blue & Company is based on an original screenplay he wrote, it was hard not to ask John Krasinski if he had an imaginary friend. Or even if he had.

“You will see, thanks to the film, that I still have”he tells us. “I haven’t checked it in a while, but I will have to. Because it does the answers itself. It does a great job.” The beginning of the feedback, which does not avoid Kailey Fleming, the main actress of the film, who is at his side at this time.

Jimmy’s former interpreter on The Office (along with Steve Carell, who voices Blue in the original version) then gets a little more serious – not without some humorous touches – to wake up this imaginary friend he had as a child. And with whom he imagined the feeling of scenes from the movie as he walked next to him in the video store.

Is this where the main idea for Blue & Company was born, even if it took time to ignite? Because John Krasinski also told us that he has long wanted to tell a story about imaginary friends, but also to make films that his children could see without two voices.

Even on the not-so-bright days, there’s always someone watching over you, a bubble of joy and imagination that you can dip back into whenever you want.

A project that began to be realized during the pandemic: “When I saw the imaginary world in which they sheltered. It inspired me as much as I envied them. Then they started asking questions about the real world, they were more concerned, so I figured I’d put that in there.”

“So they know that on the not-so-bright days, there’s always someone watching over you, a bubble of joy and imagination that you can dip back into whenever you want.” And that’s where one of the main strengths of this May 8th movie is that it will delight and amuse the kids, but not without the adults moving.
