The Stray Movie Premier & Review

I'm not really the blogger who gets a ton of amazing and awesome opportunities to go to crazy events all the time. It's not really my style, and to be honest, I've become a lot more introverted over the last few years than I used to be. When we moved to Utah though I joked with Derek that I'm going to need to get over that because there's going to be a lot more events for me to go to when we move, since Utah is such a major blogging hub.

Sure enough, two weeks into living here, and I got invited to attend the world premier of the movie, The Stray at the Megaplex in Sandy, UT last week. It was such a fun event, getting to meet the cast from the movie, and then getting to preview the film early with a ton of other influencers. It was totally out of my comfort zone, but so fun, and I'm so glad that I went. 

The movie The Stray, is about a young boy who doesn't have many friends at school, and one day finds himself approached by a stray who is mom and dad let him keep. The dog in a lot of ways truly becomes his best friend, and helps not only the boy, but his entire family as they go through some struggles and major life changes. 

The movie was directed by the same director of The Other Side of Heaven, and Heaven Is For Real, and like those movies, it is based off a true story. It's an amazing feel good family film for the entire family, and I highly recommend that you go and see it if you haven't already! I can already tell this is going to be one of the movies that I run out to purchase when it becomes available! If you haven't seen the trailer yet, watch it below, and then grab some tickets to see it with your family!


  1. I hadn't heard of this movie yet, thanks for letting me know! It looks so cute, and I have to love a movie I can bring my daughter to. She loves dogss, too. ;)

  2. So cute! And funny--that dog has the same genetic mutation that I do (two different colored eyes!)
