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!
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! My boys loved the meteorite shower scene because they love looking at the stars themselves and it reminded them of the meteorite showers we will have on August 11th and October 20th.
DISCLOSURE/DISCLAIMER: Thanks to Entertainment One and GKIDS for sending me product for free to review. My thoughts are mine and my family's own opinion and have not been altered by anyone else. I did not receive any other compensation for doing this review.
The movie directly took some of Mononoke's set pieces, with a frightening canopy covering the sky (red mist in this movie, black ooze in Mononoke), and the male and female protagonists coming to in restored world, covered by grass. I mean, if the inspiration was any more obvious, there might've been some legal ramifications. They even "borrowed" one of Mononoke's voice actors. The guy who played Gonza (John DiMaggio) in Mononoke is the main antagonist in this movie.
But Princess Mononoke this movie IS NOT. Not as beautiful, not as character-driven, not as riveting, not as epic, not as thematic, not as thorough, not as rich. The animation is refreshingly different, like crayon drawings brought to life, and that almost makes it worth watching. But the plot, the dialogue (at least in the English translation), and the characters are all pretty poor.
