Really enjoyable family movie for all
23 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

Everyone enjoyed this movie, from a 3 yr old up to a Granny.

It had music, singing, humour, swords, action and was beautifully animated.

Even difficult customers like the 7 and 8 yr old boys enjoyed it! That is one tough thing to achieve as they are the harshest critics.

I can understand why people may have got annoyed with all the singing, but open your heart <3

It is actually Strange and also Magical. Not what you expect and was a nice challenge on not judging people and accepting love with whoever you fall in love with.
