Storyline

Jake is a young boy from the village of Shilow located east Mediterranean Sea. His life with his family is ideal. They dance, bake bread, take care of their animals and they are far from any danger. Until one day the Giants who have lost their seacoast castles come knocking and kidnap nearly the entire village. Jake manages to evade capture and with his twin sister Joanie and dog Waldo he sets out to rescue his family. Along the way he encounters a magical Bird, a wise owl and a group of Beavers who aid him and advise him on how to find Giant Mountain and rescue those he loves. There are plenty of uplifting songs and there is plenty of action. Written by Brian Stewart

Great Children's Picture
31 August 2015 | by eldiez4everSee all my reviews

I caught this film last month as part of an animation series. The film is about Jake whose parents are kidnapped by the Giants and now it is up to him to save them. With Joanie and their dog, Jake leaves to save his parents. However the giants are bigger and stronger. But with determination, faith and mental strength, Jake moves forward to face his unequal nemesis. This is a very well-made film for children. Every kid loves adventure and fantasy and this is the perfect combination that will take the audience through a roller-coaster ride, with a great theme and an uplifting finish. The music is amazing. The story idea is captivating. The characters are well-written. I love the dog. Definitely a must-watch for everyone. :)
