My parents bought this for me on video when I was a toddler and I just loved it. It's an exciting new story. It has some fun songs in it and an interesting story-line. Babar is telling his children the story of his childhood, so the movie takes place mostly in Babar's past. It's a cute depiction of his childhood relationship with Celeste and the rhinos. It also includes our favorite monkey and rhino villain. I remember really liking the music. It's a high-spirited adventure. I have happy memories of watching it as it was one of my favorite movies as a kid, which is why our VHS copy is in such terrible shape. If you have the opportunity to see this, I recommend it. It's designated for children, but I still enjoyed watching it with my little sister. I loved the "Babar" books, so I was more familiar with the character than perhaps the children of today are. Give it a chance. It's an enjoyable movie based off of a very lovable elephant.
