A Really Cute and Heartfelt Short!
9 January 2019 | by masonrobledoSee all my reviews

Huh who knew DreamWorks did short films?, because I sure didn't and this one shows that they still got what it takes to be at odds with Pixar, this short is about a Bilby protecting a baby chick from all sorts of predators in the Australian Outback, it may be short but it has so much to offer, amazing animation as always from DreamWorks, the characters are cute and funny, the comedy is surprisingly strong, the score is amazing, it's touching and adorable and I like the two main characters, they are both loveable and work off each other very well!.

I highly recommend this short, properly the best DreamWorks has done since Captain Underpants: the First Epic Movie, it shows that they still can make great entertainment with good animation as always and making something for everyone to enjoy, it's making me even more excited for the new How to Train Your Dragon Movie that is coming out soon.

This short easily gets a 10/10.
