WEEKEND VIBES: Izaac Wang Dishes on his Ultimate Dream Weekend

Celebrate the weekend with your favorite stars in our new YAYOMG! series, WEEKEND VIBES! From late-night snack cravings to their dream party crashers, we’re giving you a glimpse into their weekend plans.

WEEKEND VIBES is back, and today we’re chatting with Clifford the Big Red Dog star, Izaac Wang, about all his weekend favs.

In the new Clifford film, which just hit Paramount+ and theaters last week, the iconic big red dog comes to life when Emily-Elizabeth, a middle school girl who’s struggling to fit in at her fancy private school, adopts a small red dog who follows her home and her love causes the dog to grow! Together with her quirky, fun-loving uncle and only friend, Owen Yu, they’ll have to keep Clifford a secret. But walking a big red dog through the streets of Manhattan isn’t exactly easy to hide, and Clifford goes viral online, causing a biotechnology company to take notice, and is taken for testing! Will Emily-Elizabeth be able to save Clifford and discover that it’s our differences that make us unique? You’ll have to watch to find out – and to see Izaac’s amazing performance as Emily-Elizabeth’s sweet and loyal bestie, Owen!

You can also hear Izaac lend his voice to Boun in Raya and the Last Dragon, and he’ll soon be starring as Sam Wing in Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, coming to HBO Max next year. We were super excited to catch up with this effortlessly cool and laid-back kid and find out how he kicks back when the weekend rolls around.
