The brilliant new movie Mr Peabody & Sherman arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on 6th October!

It’s all about a very clever dog called Mr Peabody and his adopted son who end up on an epic adventure travelling through time!

We recently caught up with one of the stars of the film, Penny!

Here’s what she had to say…

Penny, you’ve lived out the dream of many lifetimes: you were a royal!  What was it like being an Egyptian princess?

I loved the customer service.  And getting to wear make-up, which I’m not allowed to do at home.  But when it came down to being disemboweled and mummified, I realized I wanted to pursue other pursuits.

Boys sometime get too much credit for making history. But you’re absolutely fearless. What do you want girls to know about how they can make their mark in the world?

Everyone has something special about them and everyone should participate.  There are plenty of girls who made history – you need to read a book!  I never let anything hold me back.  I gave that advice to Hillary Clinton and she became Secretary of State!

Your friendship with Sherman obviously changed a lot in your life. How are things with you two today?

We’re still really good friends.  Just yesterday we went to Camelot.  Not the musical.  I mean the original roundtable with the Knights and everything! Is Mr. Peabody going to read this interview?

Your first trip in the WABAC machine was a sort of by accident. Where other adventures have you had in the past you would like to share?

I got to meet Sacajawea one time.  She taught me a lot about nature and also how to make moccasins.

You weren’t the best of friends with Sherman at the beginning, of course. Why is it important to give people a chance to help you see the world in a different light?

The world just seems cooler when you make friends with people who are different than you.  Just think – I would never have flown a plane or eaten Baked Alaska if I hadn’t met Sherman.

As you continue to make your way through time, a lot of fashionistas are going to ask. What are you tips in looking timeless at any age?

Be yourself and wear what’s comfortable for you.  Nothing is more stylish than confidence. Oh, and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

Would ever want to be any of the famous people you’ve met? Or are you happy being the one and only Penny?

Oh – I’m happy being me.  Actually I plan to be famous myself.  Probably I will be President of the United States.  Or I might be the first fashion forward astronaut.

You’re living proof as to why history is so exciting! Why should other kids make sure this subject is one they should never lose interest in at school?

Think of it this way – history is like the best gossip of all time!

Sherman comes from such a special family. Why do you think everyone would benefit from having a Mr. Peabody in his or her life?

Every family is special in their own way.  But there really is only one Mr. Peabody.

Here’s your chance to contribute your own “cherry tree” anecdote to the world? What will be your motto for the ages?

My motto is: be yourself and nothing else.
