The Aeronauts’ incredible journey is beginning earlier than its official release date of December 6. Amazon Prime Video is bringing out the spirit and magic of 1862 to various US cities beginning November 23 in Pasadena, California. Find out how to join in on the celebrations.
The movie is about an adventurous duo who took to the skies to ascend 37,000 feet in a balloon in 1862. James Glaishe (with Eddie Redmayne in the role) is a real-life meteorologist who dreamed to advance the study of weather conditions and is joined by daredevil pilot Amelia Wren (played by Felicity Jones). While Glaishe is a historic figure, Wren is a fictional stuntwoman and widow of a record-attempting French balloonist. Together, they embark on a journey to reach record-breaking heights.
Join the Festivities
All along its tour, The Aeronauts will bring the movie’s magic to life. The Mammoth Balloon – a replica of the balloon the duo traveled in – will be available for magical hot air balloon rides and a stereoscopic photo of the event.
A sprawling Victorian fair provides plenty of family-friendly fun. Period performers, clever cartoonists, fantastic fortune-tellers and happy hypnotists lend gaiety to the atmosphere. Games for all ages and surprise giveaways round out the spectacle.
