Normally I wouldn't give a movie like this such a high score, it didn't actually blow me away in the sense that a cult classic feature film would. But where it really shone for me was with the art style and the voice acting. You've heard this story before, an adopted child does not belong and ventures out to find their roots. It branches out a little bit after that but not a lot. Either way, yes the story is pretty typical for a children's animation but none the less it's a very enjoyable watch. It's only been a few hours since I watched it and I think I'll be re-watching it a short while after posting this review.
It's yet another example of kids entertainment being done right, because anyone can enjoy it just like a kid would.
