Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.
This is a wonderful film that all ages will enjoy. It is very educational, in covering the life of a turtle, and it is fascinating to watch Sammy and his friends grow up. The script is peppered with events in human history that the turtles can only ponder over, such as a space capsule returning to the ocean after the first lunar landing, and a messy oil spill. At its heart, "A Turtle's Tale" is a love story, with wonderful moments of poignancy. The animation and depiction of sea creatures are beautiful, and the film overall has dazzling colours. The voice talents are all great, and it is clear a lot of care was put into casting each role. The soundtrack, comprised of contemporary pop tunes, is also very entertaining. This is a film that will stick in your memory until it demands a subsequent viewing.
