loved it!!!
14 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

coming from a studio based in the the middle east as there first movie, i went to the cinema with not much high expectations,but Wow. Just wow.This movie is astounding.Everything is done so well. The animation is beautiful, the characters are charming,and the battle scenes are just epic. The plot is simple and yet complex, and the world that the audience is thrown into is an extremely interesting one.

It isn't afraid to try new things, which is extremely important in today's industry. Not only does every moment of the movie look exquisite, but the story is smart, original and hugely entertaining. With utmost care applied to its every shot, the adults will be marveling as much as the youngsters.
