Good for small kids (2-4), thoughful for those in between (5-8)
27 January 2019 | by larindomSee all my reviews

Most of the reviews seem very off to me - I really cannot believe we saw the same film? Or maybe they reviewed it for much older kids, which is wrong.

The movie has great themes and a great simple animation style. Even my kid at 1,5 just left his toys to watch along.

Enjoy it for what it is: a great story with slow pace (like old time Barbar) and simple animations and voices.

Recommended!
