We were honored to attend the celebration of young excellence that took place in Hollywood on Sunday, March 23. A beautiful group of people of various ethnic backgrounds was recognized for making a positive impact in their communities. All awardees were nominated by amazing organizations like Jack and Jill of America, Hispanic Heritage Foundation, and Camp Fire, which all focus on nurturing young leaders across the country.

But just before the awards ceremony, the attendees were treated with a special, VIP screening of Warner Bros.' upcoming movie, Shazam!

Directed by David Sandberg, Shazam! is the seventh installment in the DC Extended Universe about a streetwise 14-year-old boy Billy Batson (played by Asher Angel) who can magically transform into the adult superhero Shazam (Zach Levi) simply by shouting out his name. But with power comes responsibility - he has to learn to control his superhuman abilities. That's when his foster brother Freddy (played by Jack Dylan Grazer), a big superhero fan, steps in. Eventually, Shazam's newfound powers get put to the test when he encounters the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. 

There is a beautiful message, carried throughout the film, that perfectly represents the idea behind the event: no matter your age, race, gender - we all can be heroes, and these kids are proof of that!

Few of the cast members, including Grace Fulton (Mary), Jovan Armand (Pedro), Ian Chen (Eugene), Faithe Herman (Darla) as well as their on-screen foster mom Marta Milans (Rosa), presented the awards after the screening. We were able to sit down with them after and spoke about the film and what it represents. You can watch the interviews below.

 

Shazam' will premiere in theaters this week, on April 5.
