It's not exactly like the movie but it's a pleasant t.v series for kids.
The nothing is never really explained and i must say i much prefer the movie version where it just sucks everything up. I was a little disturbed by the death of the mother. It was a little much, but after episode one it picks up. Love the little boy with the buck teeth in the tribe. A flying machine replacing the luck dragon is clever.

In all, i prefer the original movie (hated the sequel) but who wouldn't.
