Transcript for ‘Betty White – A Celebration’ in a 1-day event to honor the recently passed icon
[MUSIC PLAYING] - It is time now for Pop News and DJ and GMA contributor, Megan Ryte, has the honors today. And the time is right for some Pop News-- what do we got? - Yes, you guys are so much fun, I love to be here, let's get started. So this morning, Pop News is telling you how you can celebrate the lives of the Hollywood stars that made the world a little brighter-- well, a lot brighter. First up, Betty White, who passed away a few weeks ago-- in a one day only event, a film to honor The Golden Girls and The Mary Tyler Moore Show star is being shown tomorrow in 1,500 theaters nationwide. It would have been her 100th birthday-- the film includes co-stars sharing their memories. - She'll be remembered as one of the smartest, funniest, kindest, most generous women in a business that doesn't normally have that kind of people in it. - A celebration also includes White's final on-camera appearance recorded just 10 days before her passing. And also tomorrow, we're helping so many dogs find homes as a part of Betty-- as a part of the Betty White challenge. Join GMA for our big live awesome event-- she loves dogs, She loves the puppies. And tonight, America's Funniest Home Videos remembers its late host, Bob Saget. Saget, who passed away suddenly a week ago, hosted the show for eight seasons, starting in 1990. And AFV will air a tribute that includes some hilarious hosting highlights. Now current host, Alfonso Ribeiro, describes it as a look back at Bob being Bob-- now the show calling him a comedy legend and a kind soul. You can see the full tribute at 7:00 Eastern right here on ABC. And finally, the holidays may be over, but some people are already preparing for Christmas 2022-- I've got friends like that. Disney has just announced a new The Santa Claus, limited series, with Tim Allen himself returning as Scott Calvin-- so excited about this. Now no word yet on the rest of the cast, maybe we'll get a Bernard cameo, I really think that is important, he has to be there. But production is set to start in March, with the series eventually streaming on Disney Plus. Does this mean we'll get it by Christmas, is that possible? - I'm such a big fan of that movie. - Yes, I hope so, you know. - I just took down the Christmas lights, so I need a little bit of time to regroup, and then we'll get back to it. - I've already started on my Christmas list for next year so-- - Eva-- [LAUGHTER] - Hey, Megan, it was so great to have you this weekend. - Thanks for having me.
