Screen Rant: What sparked your interest in joining the cast luck?

Whoopi Goldberg: they asked me [laughs]. This is what piqued my interest. They said, “Would you like to do this?” I was like, “Yes, please.”

Can you describe your experience playing this role? What’s your favorite part about her?

Whoopi Goldberg: I ​​like that I’m a goblin because, honestly, you’ve never seen a brown goblin. You just can’t see them. So, I want to make sure that the fairy tale of the goblin is also passed on to everyone else on the planet. People just think goblins are from one place – they’re not. They come from all over the world.

This allows us to prove it because she is there. She’s a brown leprechaun – not in a big silver box, but she’s still a brown leprechaun. She has a good soul and really wants life to stay the way she expects it to be. And then of course, things changed and she had to deal with changes and how to make things work, and she had to change her perception of good luck and bad luck. Because it turns out, it’s all part of the same field.

release luck The fall comes at a time when the two-and-a-half-year-long pandemic has been one of many sources of pain and hardship for many. Given what’s going on in the real world, can you talk a little bit about what it means to deliver a message of perseverance in this film?

Whoopi Goldberg: Well, that’s all I can tell you. We’ve gotten through this pandemic, we’ve lost a lot of people, and we’ve learned a lot of really bad things. But we also get a lot of amazing things because people are forced to stay at home with their families. You can’t just turn off your phone; you have to talk things over at your dinner table. Suddenly the family starts talking, doing things together, dancing together, doing silly things together. Lovers find themselves in the same position. People without kids suddenly had to actually talk to each other.

We saw Venice’s canals cleaned up. There are fish in the canal! We see the air being cleaned and you suddenly realize, “Yeah, we can make a difference.” We’ve seen it. It was imposed on us, but we saw it happen. I think people don’t realize that we are all isolated from each other in the same house.

For many, the pandemic has brought family back to them. Not for everyone, but for many. What this movie does is, it shows us that we can actually see the good in things that look bad if we’re there. How do we take it out and hone it and stick with it? This is a film about hope, change, laughter, family, who is family, and what family is like. Who knew any of us were, really, at our core? I think most of us are pretty decent people. There are some not-so-dignified ones, but I think most of us are at least trying to be decent. That’s what the movie says. You do your best. Give it a try. You might see a lucky penny if you wish.
