He said the movie was successful because it provided a narrative for the kids to become attached to while watching it.
"It is not talking at the kids. It is not giving them a list of things to remember. It is engaging them in a story and emotions based on their thoughts towards these characters that then find resolution in the end," he said. "This is giving them choice even while watching."
This might not be the last red carpet event for Glendaal students though, because there is a sequel brewing.
"I know [Feurstein] is talking about a part two on 'How to Unmake a Bully,' so there will be more movies to come," said Eagan.
The students also signed autographs on small posters made for them and given out for people to have as a keepsake of the event.
