Eddie the Eagle now available on Blu-ray and DVD!
I’ve been dying to watch this movie with my children. I was fortunate enough to screen it before it’s release and interview the stars Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton for this blog. We had tried to get my family to the theaters to catch Eddie the Eagle, but we missed it. So, the next best thing is family movie night, and to make it special I received a special Eddie the Eagle movie night package!
The film takes place in the eighties and at the Winter Olympics. Nothing could be better than a hot chocolate and a movie themed game night to celebrate! We were sent Eddie themed Bingo cards and chocolate nuggets to mark our cards! Do you remember the eighties? I sure do and we never had to worry about smartphones getting in the way of our fun. No texts to distract from our family time together.
The bingo card came complete with images of things found in the movie. It was also set up for playing multiple times. You would play one way and then switch your card with the other players and then play a different way. My boys and hubby were so into it. This was actually our second time watching the movie. I just couldn’t wait for the bingo kit to arrive to see it again!
My entire family loved this film. We need more movies such as this one. It’s the perfect reminder that you don’t always have to be a winner to be a hero. Sometimes just being a part of something that you love is enough, and I think that’s important for kids to know in this age were everything is a competition.
