Betty White is turning 100 and it’s a special occasion!
The legendary actress and comedian will release a movie titled Betty White: 100 Years Young — A Birthday Celebration to commemorate her 100th birthday on January 17. The one-day only theatrical event is expected to show in 900 movie theaters across the United States.
Directed by Steve Boettcher and Mike Trinklein and distributed by Fathom Events, 100 Years Young will center on the behind-the-scenes of White’s daily life, her relationship with her office staff, and her work as an animal advocate. Additionally, viewers will get to see a handful of clips and footage from her roles in Golden Girls, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Hot in Cleveland.
The ticketing website for the event states that the movie will include never-before-scenes, including “a lost episode from Betty’s first sitcom” and “inside stories of her amazing life and career.”
Boettcher said in a statement, “We didn’t want this day to pass without bringing together all the people that love her, from her co-stars and friends to her many millions of fans of all ages, to celebrate her 100th birthday with an entertaining and loving look at what makes Betty a national treasure.”
Celebs and friends of the Golden Girls star that are expected to make appearances include Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Robert Redford, Lin Manuel- Miranda, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Jay Leno, Carol Burnett, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, Valerie Bertinelli, James Corden, Wendy Malick and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
“Who doesn’t love a party?!? This one is gonna be great,” White told CNN.
