Want a family friendly ecological adventure that seems destined to draw comparisons to the works of legendary filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki? This French import from 2008 clearly modeled itself from the same template and themes that Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke) has revisited with frequency. And yet, in this case, I'm not sure that the comparison will be a positive one. "Mia and The Migoo" is a beautifully illustrated fantasy just now making a delayed North American DVD debut. The movie looks wonderful with hand drawn illustrations and an earthy color palette. It is clear that the film has been meticulously put together and presents a visual feast. And as this story began, I was sure that we had a winner. The tale, however, takes some unexpectedly obtuse turns which muddle its message and make it a bit harsh for younger viewers. Don't get me wrong. I still liked "Mia and The Migoo," it just seems to veer off track in its last third.

The movie starts out as a classic quest. Plucky Mia's father is an immigrant worker that is far away breaking ground on a new resort. Mia decides that she must see him, so sets off on a cross-country sojourn that it's best not to think about in practical terms. She can be spirited and likable, if occasionally bratty (like when she threatens to basically steal someone's boat if they don't help her), and demonstrates a great perseverance. Meanwhile, Mia's father is in danger from strange happenings at the work sight and is, in fact, missing for most of the movie unbeknownst to her. And the tale also introduces the greedy industrialist behind the project and his difficult relationship with his son. As all the characters are on separate paths, there is much to admire and enjoy about "Mia and the Migoo.

From GKIDS, the theatrical distributors of The Secret of Kells and A Cat in Paris, Mia and the Migoo is a heartwarming story about a young girl who sets off on a journey to find her father. Little does she know what she will also see, meet and find along her way. She is fearless, a little bossy at times, and very independent. In this fable-like quest she must also overcome her fears and help innocent, bumbling forest spirits called the Migoo save the ancient Tree of Life that is being threatened by money hungry developers.

I love this film! It has a beautiful eco-friendly message of hope, healing and change for the better. This film took 6 years to make. Created from an astonishing 500,000 hand-painted frames of animation, the gorgeous second feature from award winning French director Jacques-Rémy Girerd and animation studio Folimage is a work of art, breathtaking to behold. Its rich backgrounds and colors are reminiscent of famous paintings in watercolors and pastel. It has won best animated feature in the European Film Awards and the HSBC Environmental Film Award.

This English version features voices of Whoopi Goldberg, Matthew Modine, James Woods and Wallace Shawn. Bonus features include "Making of" Featurette & an Interview with the Director. Total movie run time is 91 minutes long. It is rated PG for thematic elements, some peril and brief mild language so you may want to screen it before having your children watch just in case.

My children, especially the youngest were entranced by this film and thought the Migoo were funny and strange. Zari, my very youngest loved it every time a jungle critter would appear. I thought the bus scene was great!

This spectacular tale is the story of a bold girl, Mia, who sets off on a dangerous journey to find her father, and a boy who accompanies his cruel father on a business trip. The roads of the two kids cross and result in a thrilling adventure about saving the tree of life in a tropical forest together with the mystic Migoos.
Producer Jaques-Remy Girerd truly created a master piece of animated beauty and wonder with brightly colored landscapes and unique characters.
Recurring themes of the film are respect (towards beings and nature), relationships between children and their parents and environmental protection.
Mia and the Migoo touches your heart deeply. The little girls faith on her journey is as powerful as the magic of the cuddly giants. The views, drawings, colors and animation in this film are amazing. A must see!

Was not pleased with how excessively nasty the businessman father was in his work and personal life. Was also disappointed with the role of the Migoo... hoping they would be more conservation focused and less goofy and bumbling. The mountain troll-witch (whoopi goldberg) seemed frightening for no good reason and she took the little girl's sentimental amulets which were never returned. Then the troll-witch never appeared again and it made her character seem unnecessary. The animation was lovely though, as were the scenery shots and landscapes. Mia is one tough little girl who showed much bravery and strength which was welcome. Felt too scary for my 5 year old but my 10 year old liked it okay.
