Once again Out & About with Kids was invited to be part of the Media at the Red, well actually bright yellow, Carpet at an Australian Premiere. Paramount launched DreamWorks, Puss In Boots 3D with great fanfare and hype at Hoyts EQ on Sunday.
Lucky Australian guests sashayed their way down the carpet being entertained by fortunetellers, clowns and flamenco dancers. The younger guests had already had the talented attentions of a group of expert face painters and there were many Kitty’s and Puss’s smiling broadly with excitement as they made their way inside to be the first to see the movie in Australia.
There were the Oz celebs that scored a pass including the always-delightful Irwin family. Bindi Irwin, poised beyond her years, with adoring brother Bob ever so cutely following her lead. They are fantastic ambassadors for Australia and a credit to their deservedly proud Mum Teri.
The hype went into overdrive with the arrival of the International stars them selves. Director Chris Miller and DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg were generous with their time on the carpet. The real fan and paparazzi craziness was saved for very special guests Antonio Banderas, and Salma Hayek who provided the voices for the lead characters Puss In Boots himself and Kitty Soft Paws.
Both stars chatted with Out & About with Kids saying how much they loved Australia and were looking for ward to spending some down time here with their families after the 14 country promotional tour. These two talented and gorgeous celebrities deserve all the fame thrown their way. Star struck, you bet!
Puss in Boots is released in Australia on 8 December 2011 from Paramount.
