Your favorite movies are getting the abuela treatment, thanks to Jenny Lorenzo.
The comedic actress stepped into her ever popular Cuban abuela character in a new video by We are mitú to show just how different grandmothers might pronounce some of Hollywood’s biggest hits. If you think you’ve never heard of “Jur Ass Is Parked,” aka “Jurassic Park,” “Estar Guar,” aka “Star Wars,” or “Engsepsyon,” aka “Inception,” you’re probably wrong.
Lorenzo also opened up about why her character is so special to her on Thursday via Facebook. The actress explained that the role was inspired by her own Cuban abuela, who recently died.
“This character means the world to me and I am ever so happy to see people enjoying her as well,” she wrote in the caption.
She also defended the character from critics in the post.
“Every now and then I’ll receive a comment stating how offensive and stereotypical the character is, but there is absolutely no malice behind the portrayal as she is intended to represent everyone’s mami/abuelita to some capacity,” she wrote. “Aside from bringing laughter, my goal with this character has always been to bring about nostalgia and admiration.”
Watch Lorenzo and her abuela character take on classic movie titles in the video above.
