Pretty aesthetics, but very mediocre story
15 November 2020 | by patrick000000111See all my reviews

It looks pretty and feels magical, but thats about it. The movie seems to want to check to many boxes at once and ends up forgetting to do the most important thing: be a good story. The story is rushed and not unique, the personalities feel completely fabricated and dialogs unrealistic. This movie is probably fun for very young children, but thats about it
