When Mor'du is killed towards the end of the film he turns into a will o' the wisp and we realise that they are the spirit of the dead. During the credits a will o' the wisp appears over the credit "dedicated with love and gratitude to Steve Jobs, our partner, mentor and friend." See more »
Once you get past the accents and the stunning scenery there is not much of a story.
I can't believe the "female heroine" still gets buzz as original. When was the last time a kids show had a male hero that wasn't in some way arrogant needing to be knocked down a notch (Tangled, Cars,Buzz Lightyear etc)or a weak anti-hero that realizes he needs help (Woody, Nemo's Dad, etc.
Make a movie with a classic male hero and that would be mold breaking. If movie makers stop treating female audiences as if they are so fragile they could not stand a guy with confidence or deserving confidence, that would be original.
The cliché is that the female characters are always perfect except just a bit too spunky.
