“That was a lot of fun. How often do you get to be blue and 12 feet tall with a tail?”
“Battle of the Year” may look like a frothy dance movie in the tradition of “Step It Up” and “You Got Served” but Alonso says it has a pretty good underlying message as well.
“It’s a fun movie, it’s a dance movie and it’s in 3D. We’re not in there trying to save people from blowing up our planet or anything like we did in ‘Avatar’. It’s a movie about teamwork and coming together and working out our differences. As individuals, you can be the best you can be, but if you don’t know how to work as a team, then you don’t really have anything.”
