Number of Times Seen – 1 (12 Aug 2013)
Brief Synopsis – A young girl is miraculously transported into a miniature forest world where she must help the forces of good keep the forces of evil from taking over the world.
My Take on it – This was a fun movie with a very nice concept.
Most of the voice actors are not easily identified just by their voices which actually helps the movie achieve it’s goal of being entertaining without the distraction of all-star voice actors in characters who don’t look like them.
I’m not against all-star voice actors per se, but many animated movies these days try to get moviegoers to fill the seats based on star voices instead of story and this movie actually has a good story with a good concept.
The only voice actor I immediately recognized was Christoph Waltz and he was devious and menacing as the head baddie.
I liked the way they explain how humans perceive the miniature world and vice-versa.
I believe that they have many more stories available from this new “world” and I would be pleased to see more of it in the future.
Bottom Line – Fun animated movie. Not on par with the Pixar standard, but still entertaining. Recommended
Rating – Globe Worthy
