White, the former Golden Girl, will turn 100 on January 17 and wants to celebrate in a memorable way.

The Emmy-winning television star and comedian has invited her fans to celebrate with her in a movie event called “Betty White: 100 Years Young -- A Birthday Celebration.

“I’m going BIG for my birthday,” she wrote on Twitter, adding, “right to the BIG SCREEN!”

The film will highlight White in her day-to-day life, including “behind-the-scenes on sets, working with her office staff, entertaining at home, lending her voice as an animal advocate and take viewers to her actual birthday party.”

Fans will also be able to see feature appearances from some of White’s famous friends, including 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.

The movie will show clips from some of White’s iconic roles as well, including Rose on “Golden Girls,” her hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live,” her Super Bowl/Snickers commercial, and her role as Sue Ann on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”

The movie will also honor White’s role as the first woman to produce a national TV show and the first woman to receive an Emmy nomination!

White said to CNN in a statement, “Who doesn’t love a party?!? This one is gonna be GREAT!”

Ahead of the centennial celebration, fans rallied to protect America’s sweetheart at all costs.

Many even demanded that the TV and comedy legend be provided with “national security” to ensure her well-being amid these tumultuous and uncertain items.

Throughout the quarantine, the spunky actress reportedly did a lot of crossword puzzles to “keep her mind jumping."

The award-winning star previously credited her health and longevity to “hot dogs and vodka.”

White also had some other advice that we could benefit from: “Enjoy life. Accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look."'

On her 99th birthday, White said that the one thing that keeps her going and positive is “a sense of humor.
