First Look At ‘If’ Family Film About Imaginary Friends Coming To Life

A new and upcoming family film, “If,” poses the question, what would happen if everything you believed and imagined as a child was real?

A youngster using their imagination, much like learning to ride a bike and tying their shoes, is a part of childhood. Most people, if they were honest, would admit to having an imaginary friend or two as a child. Imaginary friends were terrific. They were dependable, quiet and always wanted to play the same game as you. 

In the trailer for “If,” which stands for "imaginary friend," those fictional, childhood companions come to life. They even interact with people in the real world. Of course, this would throw anyone and everyone’s life in upheaval, causing them to question their sanity. Luckily, this is only a movie.

In the clip’s opening seconds, a man encounters a large, purple and friendly creature. The man can hardly believe his eyes, but through their short exchange, the two appear to be familiar with one another.

“Hi!” the purple character says as he greets the man.

“Well, looky, looky,” the man says to the purple, Grimace-looking creature.

Later in the trailer, a young woman spots another imaginary friend. Given the situation, she has a perfectly normal and natural reaction. She immediately feints, falling to the ground, creating a loud thud. 

The imaginary characters explain the reason for their presence in the real world. 

“Our kids grew up, so we need new ones,” one character states.

The film, which is scheduled to hit theaters in May 2024, features an all-star cast. Ryan Reynolds, Steve Carell, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon and Vince Vaughn are all credited as having a role in the upcoming family flick, according to IMDB.

Additionally, the film was written and directed by The Office star John Krasinski. 

Proverbs 18:24 “A man of many companions may be ruined, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
