Julie Andrews is the Chief Tooth Fairy

Most beloved and much-honored star on stage, screen and television Julie Andrews weaves wonder for today’s young in the upcoming family movie “The Tooth Fairy” with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ashley Judd, Stephen Merchant and Billy Crystal.

Andrews play Fairyland’s no-nonsense matriarch, Lily who sentences Derek (Dwayne Johnson) to two weeks of hard time as a Tooth Fairy. Derek awakens one night to find – under his pillow, no less – a summons accusing him of Violation 70136: “Dissemination of Disbelief.” Before Derek figures out what that even means, he suddenly sprouts wings and is sucked up into a vortex that deposits his now tutu-clad frame in a pastel alternate universe known as Fairyland – a magical version of a massive train station, which is about to become Derek’s new training ground.

As the stern but ultimately warm-heated Chief Tooth Fairy, Andrews, a film icon who has delighted audiences for over 40 years – from her roles in “Mary Poppins” and “The Sound of Music” to her more recent work in “The Princess Diaries” enchants in the following q&a:

Q: After doing so many magical family movies, what is in “Tooth Fairy” this time?

A: “I found much appreciate in its message. The thing that really sold me on doing it was its message that children must be allowed to dream and fantasize and use their imagination. I think what makes a good family film is a quality of joy and perhaps a certain innocence and children also need a sense of wonder. We all need it!”

Q: How close is this story to you personally?

A: “It so embraces everything when I write my children’s stories. Everything resonated in this film.”

Q: How strong is your character in the movie?

A: “Lily, my character is a really tough lady, she’s the head of all tooth faiyland. She is the tooth fairy. And she’s tpugh kind and an enormous kingdom and has a lot to do. And it’s up to Lily to put Derek (Dwayne) in his place.”

Julie Andrews may be more familiar with today’s young audience as the queen-grandmother in the hit movie “Princess Diaries” films. But prior to “Princess Diaries,” Andrews has long been a highly regarded for her works which are now considered classics including which is her feature film debut “Mary Poppins” in 1964. It is for her portrayal as Mary Poppins that brought her an Academy Award®, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA Award. She earned a second Oscar® nomination and won another Golden Globe Award for her unforgettable portrayal of Maria Von Trapp in “The Sound of Music.” She received her third Academy Award nomination and won another Golden Globe Award for her “dual” role in “Victor/Victoria.” Andrews also voiced the character of Queen Lillian in the hits “Shrek 2,” and “Shrek the Third.”

“Tooth Fairy” opens January 22 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
