Product Description

Join Babar, Celeste and Sephyr through the wild jungles to Elephantland where they take on the sinister Rhino Lord.

Review

If Crocodile Dundee and Indiana Jones got together to make an animated feature-length film about Babar, they might come up with this. The tale of Babar's first days as the boy elephant king are a wild action-adventure ride that recounts Elephantland's victory in a war against the rhinos. Some of the action may be a little too heavy for the little ones at whom the film is aimed--elephants are enslaved and their village is burned--but they are set against the broader landscape of Babar trying to do the right thing. Several musical numbers, including an amusing one that makes fun of red tape, help give the film an upbeat pace. Yes, Babar does save the day, but he does it in such a spectacular, eye-popping way that even the adults watching will sit up and pay attention. --Valerie J. Nelson

Format: DVD
It's Babar's first day as king, and is this young ruler nervous. The most pressing thing on his agenda seems to be coming up with a name for the annual Elephantland parade when Celeste bursts in. Rataxes and his rhinos are attacking villages on the outskirts of Babar's kingdom and taking elephants as slave labor. Babar calls out the army, but it will take three days to be ready. Not able to wait that long, he sets out to do what he can on his own. But does Babar have what it takes? With a little luck, smart thinking, and a few new allies, he just might.
I remember watching this movie as a kid and enjoying it. I just couldn't pass up a chance to get it on DVD, and I'm glad to say it was almost as good as I remembered. A couple parts seemed a little cheesy now, but they were minor. There are still a couple great action sequences and the great one-liners I remembered were still present. This is a low budget picture, and its animation isn't up to the level of a Disney film, but it's certainly adequate to get the point across.
This DVD release is bare bones - just the film. The picture is good with only the occasional mar to its full frame image. Sound, in Dolby stereo, was a little disappointing in spot because it sounded a little fuzzy to me. Still, for what it is, this DVD serves up the movie right.
Kids will be entranced by this movie aimed directly at them. Adults will find it entertaining as well if not as engrossing as their kids think it is. Don't hesitate to get this little gem.

I first viewed Babar The Movie when it was released in cinemas, then about six years old and looked to purchase this for my children, as some say even the series had mild violence but it's no Watership Down; it depends on your child, I recall it stirred me and made me sad at times when I was a child but that's why it became a part of my heart, Babar is a sentimental epic, sit down and watch it with your children like my father did with me, you are destined to enjoy it with an open mind.

This movie, although a bit tough to understand for really little kids, remains firmly in my mind even though it has been about nine years since I have seen it. It teaches kids about the wrongs of slavery, and the idea that even a kid can make a difference. I can't begin to express my sorrow since they've discontinued it, I'm considering writing to the prouducer-type-people. Because if there's anything this movie has taught me, it's that no matter your age, you can still change things.

This is a movie that I watched and loved growing up and still love today. I bring it over when I babysit sometimes. It's a movie the kids love and someone my age can sit through and actually enjoy. The songs are catchy and the storyline has a lot of heart. Some scenes when Retaxus's troops take the elephants hostage might be frightning for younger kids. But I got frightened easily as a kid and if I can handle it, most average kids probably can too. I'd recomend this to anyone who wants to watch a movie with their kids they both can enjoy.

My 3 year old son loves this movie and the characters of Babar. In my first viewing of the movie I thought it might be a bit much since the Babar and Celeste characters are trying to escape the villian in the movie, there were fires and loud roars etc...but it didn't seem to bother him at all. He marched right along with them stayed glued to the tv for the whole movie.

Format: DVD
I loved this movie as a little toddler, must have watched it as much as I could when it was shown on cable. I decided to watch the movie again as an adult to see how it held up vs how I thought about it. It held up pretty well, it had elements of comedy along with presenting more mature themes in what I thought to be an appropriate way. I was not exactly sure if my niece would like it, the Rhinos get a little intense, but I would argue it's not as intense as some Disney movies like Lion King, Aladin, or the sharks in Finding Nemo. Turns out my niece watched the movie twice on her birthday, and when I reached for the remote to turn the tv a little louder she shrieked "Don't turn it!", I noticed it was during a scene with Babar and the Rhinos. I think she did pretty well handling the movie and loved the few songs made for sing-a-long. Parents should watch the film and know that it has some mature things in it that younger children might not be ready for, but I would watch it with them and just ask them if they feel scared.

This movie is great for bringing back memories from my childhood. It's also a quality children's story. Maybe a little scary at parts, but definitely a great movie. The DVD itself is in great shape, I would recommend buying from this seller.

As a child I had a vast collection of disney, universal, and other cartoon movies. None stuck out as much as this one! A movie inspired by the cartoon inspired by the drawings that were drawn by. I enjoyed watching it every time it came on TV, and would watch the movie over and over. I can quote it like most people can quote the lion king, because it has very catchy tunes and they stick with me even if I haven't seen the movie in almost 10 years.

Aside from being so memorable, it has a loveable cast of animal characters that are all full of personality and very humorous. It was a very touching story for it's time and it's a shame it never got as popular as the several good disney movies that were released.

I recently purchased this movie because I wanted to remember more of my childhood and it really helped. I used to watch this movie after elementary school and sometimes with friends.

I highly reccomend this movie for all those who watched Babar as a child and miss your childhood. Or... for those of you with kids, get this for them! You won't regret it!
