Jason Momoa’s Last Role in Slumberland is his most family-friendly yet. In the netflix trend november title, the Game of Thrones and Aquarius actor plays the satyr companion of a young girl who discovers a dream world. And when I say family-friendly, I’m also talking about Momoa’s newest addition to his family, his pet pig.
In Slumberland, Marlow Barkley’s Nemo sees her stuffed fluffy pig friend named “Pig” come to life at night and joins her on her adventures with Momoa’s Flip. So, of course, the DC actor decided to watch the Pig scenes with his own squeaky bestie. Check it:
In the video for Still watching NetflixJason Momoa hugs his own pig as they watch Slumberland together. It’s a cute minute and a half, as Momoa calls the pig in the movie “pretty cute,” but not as cute as his own. As the pig goes after a piece of food, Momoa rambles that the pig is his “son” and has the “genes” to become an actor like him. He had to add the ridiculous pun and tell him he’s got the “acting chops.” Do you understand?
Obviously it was a little hard for Momoa’s piggy to sit still while watching some clips of it Slumberland, but what a joy we got to see the actor next to his adorable new pet. Earlier this month, Jason Momoa introduced the pig Instagram as “Lau Lau” or “Manapua”, as he was still in the process of choosing a name.
Momoa captioned the post saying that “this is why” he can’t work with animals because he ends up taking them home. In the video itself, the actor said he hoped to take his new pet to the Slumberland premiered in a top hat, but in the background it sounded like his mother was protesting. He was still deciding which name suited the little man. When his mom asked if he was domesticated, Momoa said he’s all Hawaiian and all feral — just like his pops.
When Momoa attended the Los Angeles premiere of Slumberlandhe updates Entertainment tonight, saying the pig was in Hawaii. Since he’s technically a wild boar, the actor apparently couldn’t bring him to the event. You can watch the one from CinemaBlend Slumberland interviews with Jason Momoa and the castvalue actor exclaimed that Flip smells like “rainbow farts of love.”
After Jason Momoa first entered the Hollywood scene as this intimidating badass, it’s been amazing to see his soft side over the years through his social media, interviews and acts like falling in love with a pig and his latest movie view with him.
