Suddenly filled by a long-forgotten sense of purpose, Bunyan and Babe, the blue ox, get wrapped up in a brand new adventure, and together with the help of their new friends, Travis and Whitney, they save the town. Together they learn ...

The Amazing Blackstone:
[upon learning his brother's sneaky plan]

Exceptional, would watch again!
An amazing film! I have never experienced anything like this ever before! The dialogue was absolutely top notch and the characters were amazingly portrayed. The voice acting was incredible as well! I have never been through such an experience as I have with this film. The best movie of 2017 and probably of all time!
