Marquis Boone, the enterprising entertainment mogul, and motivational influencer released a fan-made film trailer called BEBE. Boone had an idea over the summer. What if the iconic 1992 adult animated comedy film, Bebe’s Kids, was re-imagined and continued where the animation left off but this time as a real-life movie with a psychological thriller twist? Since releasing the teaser on social media people’s reactions started to pour in with over 2 million views on Facebook and thousands of comments, the people are talking. 

Bebe is written by Marquis Boone and directed by Tailiah Breon, who recently directed the Lifetime original film, Kirk Franklin’s The Night Before Christmas. The plot of Bebe revolves around a single mother with three kids. She struggles to understand why after each first date she never hears from her men again. Through a dark contemporary lens, the trailer perfectly brings to real life every animated character from the original film. Brent Black portrays Robin Harris’ character and leads a cast that also includes veteran actor George Lima and Sarah Danielle Toran who has recently appeared in BET’s “Kingdom Business” and “Sacrifice” drama series. “Robin, Jamika, Lashawn, Kahlil, Leon, and even Pee-wee were all cast perfectly,” Boone says.

Boone grew up watching Bebe’s Kids and wanted to use the short to explore the more serious topics the original film never touched on. “I wanted to continue where the animation left off and answer the questions like who was Bebe and where was she? Why were these kids so bad? What was really going on in their home?” Boone adds. “I wanted to create something that would explore the possibility of Jordan Peele teaming up with me and we made Bebe’s Kids into a thriller, what that would look like”. In the film, the audience is taken down a path that confronts many taboo topics such as family trauma, sexual abuse, and mental illness. “I felt like growing up I always thought there was more to the story, more behind the cartoon that we laughed over,” Boone continues. “I thought, ‘man, we could really take this story and deal with some real-life issues in a really psychological way.”
