Nelvana's most recent movie.
15 October 2008 | by joebrian55See all my reviews

I have to admit, this movie is the best Nelvana release I have ever watched. This film is so good I call it "Once Upon A Forest meets The Little Bear Movie but with different characters." This weekend, I watched it with my little sister. We both liked it. It doesn't matter if Franklin has a different voice, all that matters is that it is a VERY good movie.

It all started when I was surfing Wikipedia at school one day when I noticed that a Franklin movie was released. In the fall of that year, I was frantically looking for this film and believe me, I was too frustrated I nearly gave up. This fall, I found the DVD cover for this movie in a Wal-Mart flyer and I just got it for my birthday.

My favorite characters are, Franklin, Samantha and, of course, Little Crow. I like how Little Crow calls shiny things "Shiny pretties". It isn't one of those movies with a sad ending, but with a happy ending because Granny gets cured and Franklin is declared hero.
