  • the film tells the story of an avid comic book

  • fan named Flora, who saves a squirrel she named Ulysses.

  • But pretty soon, she finds out that Ulysses

  • has unique superpowers.

  • And their antic-filled adventures change Flora's life forever.

  • Let's hear from the cast and crew of "Flora & Ulysses."

  • I'm here with Matilda Lawler, Alyson Hannigan, and Lena Khan,

  • the cast and director of "Flora & Ulysses."

  • Hi, guys.

  • Hi.

  • Hi.

  • Alyson, can you tell us about "Flora & Ulysses"?

  • It's just this incredible story of Flora,

  • and she's a very imaginative, wonderful girl, that

  • saves this squirrel's life.

  • And then discovers that that squirrel is now a super hero.

  • And a lot of entertainment and action

  • and adventure and everything ensues after that.

  • Matilda, tell us about your character, Flora.

  • So my character starts out as a cynic.

  • And she decides that she can't hope,

  • and she has to just observe.

  • And then as the story goes on, she meets Ulysses.

  • And Ulysses kind of brings her family together,

  • and then gives her hope again.

  • Lena, what do you hope the audience takes

  • away from watching the movie?

  • We're dealing with a crazy time right now,

  • and I'm just kind of hoping people,

  • when they come out of it, with all the stuff kind of life

  • throws at you, they can kind of see a different way

  • of seeing the world.

  • OK, Matilda and Alyson, we are going to create

  • a squirrel sonnet together.

  • So we need to come up with a list of words,

  • starting with you, Matilda.

  • I need you to give me a noun.

  • Hm.

  • Paris.

  • Err, flying.

  • Is that a verb?

  • I cannot wait to see how this sonnet turns out.

  • Old.

  • Uh, scuba diving.

  • Lives.

  • Lives.

  • Yo-yoing.

  • Young.

  • Uh, Australia.

  • OK, are you ready to hear our squirrel sonnet?

  • Yes.

  • Yes.

  • Today is going to be amazing!

  • The lingering smell of Paris makes me want to sing.

  • What kind of day would it be if I did not try to fly

  • it is, after all, my routine.

  • In my own old way, I scuba dive, live, and yo-yo into action

  • to give life to the day!

  • For any other squirrel, this would be young, you see.

  • But Australia happens to be my specialty!

  • (LAUGHS)

  • Thank you, again, so so much, Matilda and Alyson,

  • for playing this wonderful game,

  • and for creating this beautiful and powerful sonnet together.

  • (LAUGHS) Eh, questionable.

  • Make sure to stream "Flora & Ulysses,"

  • tomorrow on Disney+.

  • We have reached the end, folks.

  • But you can't say we didn't deliver.

  • There were Muppets and a super hero squirrel.

  • I mean, name another YouTube show that can deliver both.

  • Be sure to head over to Disney+ to stream all

  • of your favorites.

  • Happy Sweet Sixteen, Jenny.

  • You too, buddy.

  • And now, I'm going to open up my "What's Up,

  • Disney+" Sweet Sixteen birthday presents.

  • See ya.

  • Wait, you got presents?

  • Andre, you got presents?

  • Andre.

  • Holy unanticipated occurrences.
