The U.S. Department of Defense released a video Friday with Brie Larson talking about her experience with the 144th Fighter Wing in Fresno.
Larson spoke highly of the 144th pilots and hoped her new movie “Captain Marvel” will inspire girls across the world.
The 144th Fighter Wing is based in Fresno.
“It’s exciting for me to think that perhaps this film will spark something in little girls — to see that they can fly … let’s make girls fly,” Larson said.
The DoD also tweeted photos of Larson, along with costar Samual L. Jackson, posing with 144th pilots at various places.
