After a three year hiatus, Madea returns to the big screen in Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween, but believe it or not, it was funny man Chris Rock who initiated the gun-toting granny’s return to theaters.

HipHollywood sat down with Tyler Perry and the cast of his new flick for a special Q&A session at the YouTube Space in L.A., and found out how Rock inspired the film.

“Chris Rock did this movie called Top Five, and in it, he did this ridiculous spoof that he called and got permission from me called Boo! A Madea Halloween. I was like, ‘Chris, that is so ridiculous,'” explained Perry. “But I was like, ‘Fine, do it.’ So he puts it in the movie, and Lionsgate saw and they went, ‘Umm, Tyler, what do you think about a Halloween movie?'”

In the film, Madea winds up in the middle of some hilarious Halloween mayhem, and Perry enlisted some of the Web’s most talented social media influencers, including Liza Koshy, Yousef Erakat, Brock O’Hearn and Diamond White to help bring Madea to a new generation.

Check out the video above to hear what they had to say about working with Perry, and why he believes this is the funniest Madea flick to date.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
