Little Impy, as they call him, is loving his new family and ready to explore this strange new world. But when a king from a faraway country vows to capture the loveable baby dino for his private collection, all the inhabitants of Impy's island must join together to save their new friend.

The set animation however, is quite nice: water and foliage effects are well done.

The characters are life like, there is plenty age appropriate humour and important life lessons imparted along the way.

This movie is has kept my grandson fascinated for hours. The characters are life like, there is plenty age appropriate humour and important life lessons imparted along the way.
The story line is easy to follow and describes animals on an island who live toghether and encounter many adventures. It promotes values such as accepting differences in others, the dangers of risk taking, problem solving, seeking help and looking out for others in a moving and light hearted manner.
I inted to purchase one copy for each of my grandchildren.

My 3 year old daughter loves this film. The colors are bright, the character CGI is adequate, though nothing moves very quickly. The set animation however, is quite nice: water and foliage effects are well done. The pig character undergoes some development that is not entirely convincing, but then this is a kids movie originally in German. In the end, the pig's acceptance of Impy is warmly done. Impy's Island is a pleasant film. However, if your kids like extras on DVDs, there are none with this film.

This movie is based on a series of 11 books from the German author Max Kruse (His mother is Käthe Kruse who is a famous doll and toy creator Käthe Kruse 74198 "Nicki" Baby Pale Pink ). The books are from 1969.
This is a classic, lovable and non violent story that children have loved for over 35 years. Animals and people, with all their different characteristics, live together peacefully - accepting and loving each other for who they are.

In effort to be thorough, my tour of computer generated animated feature films has taken me down some odd roads. I recently suffered through The Legend of Sasquatch for purpose of review but did note that the DVD opens with a pretty solid preview of another fairly un-hyped film called Impy's Island.

Impy's looked to soar in the areas Sasquatch came up short: bright, crisp visuals and cleanly rendered textures. I ordered the DVD with fairly modest expectations and upon completing it last night, am ready to share my opinion with the world.

Impy's Island, it turns out, is a 2006 animated remake of the classic 60s and 70s German TV Series "Augsburger Puppenkiste", which itself was based on the novel Urmal from the Ice Age by Max Kruse. Having no prior experience with the originals, I am unable to comment on the faithfulness of the translation but apparently the story (in all of the incarnations goes as follows):

On a hidden tropical island, a fun-loving group of misfit exiled talking animals (mixed with a few people) makes a marvelous discovery when an iceberg, apparently dislodged when the Titanic made its infamous collision, floats into the tropical waters.

Within this particular slab of ice resides an egg apparently frozen in place since prehistoric times. With a little reheating action, the island's inhabitants manage to get it to hatch. What emerges is a young winged dinosaur they name Impy. All would be well for this ragtag group of creatures except for the fact that a king from a faraway country learns of the dinosaur's existence and sets of on an expedition to the island in search of the rare trophy (Impy's head to be mounted on his wall).
