A Magical film!
24 December 2018 | by MollygazaySee all my reviews

I have watched this film now 2 years in a row. It's become part of our holiday tradition! I'm surprised by the lower rating. It has a Studio Ghibli feel and the writing along with the animation and VO work is spectacular. Really brings you into the world! I have watched this with kids and adults who have all said they enjoyed every minute! Highly entertaining!
