Storyline

The dam where Thumbelina and her father live is breaking due to the rising waters in the nearby pond. Father worries that when spring comes, the melting snows will rise the water higher than ever causing the dam to crack and water to flow over the meadow, thus drowning the little people who live there. Father believes he is too old to take on the journey to find the prince and warn him and his people, so he asks his daughter to go instead. Thumbelina agrees, but in her journey she mets a great deal of characters, both good and evil. To someone not bigger than a human's thumb, dealing with the evil intentions of Mona, a greedy mouse, will prove to be a big challenge. Written by Eric Irizarry

great underrated film
14 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i only just saw this film after talking to someone about it on this board i really enjoyed it though it had great music and the characters were good it was much better than the dreaded don Blithe version which tried to be to much like a Disney movie but don Blithe don't have the talent of Disney anyway this film is a treat . for anyone i am 20 years old and my girlfriend is 18 but we really enjoyed this movie a lot i also recommend good times Pocahontas it was really good.overall a great film that deserves better treatment. i would recommend this to everyone

if you liked this try watching sinbad or 3 muskerteers but not goodtimes version of jungle book really not up to standard of disneys best ever work
