With fans going crazy over the trailer for Justin Bieber’s 3-D movie , it seems that he wants them to know one thing about the February release: It’s meant to inspire them to do whatever it is they’ve always dreamed of. Good thing it’s called “Never Say Never.”
“I want to let people know there’s a lot of people that are discouraging in life and that will tell you you can’t do something, but you just got to remember that the sky’s the limit,” he told MTV News at an L.A.-area book signing over the weekend. “You’re able to do whatever you set your mind to as long as you remember to keep God first and stay grounded. So I think the movie really explains that, and it’s really inspiring.”
The flick’s director, Jon Chu , echoed that sentiment when he spoke with MTV News last month.” “It’s really an interesting sort of pass between his real life to his music, so I think in the trailer, we break it down every step of the way in his life. Everyone said, ‘It’s not possible,’ ” Chu said. “Every step, everyone’s always said, ‘No, no, no, no.’ And he’s always said, ‘Yes, yes, yes.’ And that sort of ‘never say never’ idea is conveyed in the trailer.
“That’s sort of the power of our movie: to help inspire kids to follow their dreams, and anyone really, kid or adult,” he added. “It’s been sort of a family journey of fulfilling your destiny.”
The trailer, which debuted last week, was filled with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with some of the people important in Bieber’s life, including mentor Usher and manager Scott “Scooter” Braun. Chu said that if Bieber’s fans were tempted by what they saw in the trailer, they should love the film when it hits their local theater.
“We talked about the story of us sort of going back to his life and seeing a lot of archival footage and things that have never been seen that his mom shot when he was a kid,” Chu said. “We don’t have as much of that in the trailer, [and] the movie uses a lot, ’cause we’re finding it really fascinating to see him grow. It’s one of the very few generations that have been able to be shot when they were a kid to a teenager and see all the steps of his development.”
