reed 📽’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was solid! I would recommend it to anyone who has a beating heart because the film is charming and heartfelt. It also tackles really serious issues and topics in a way that will hopefully inspire the children and people who watch it to come together and protect our world and the species that call it home.
The voice cast is superb! The ensemble of characters are all so likable and I think get pretty much equal spotlight. The cast is able to deliver a lot of funny material that really does come off as funny and not as corny.. Ariana Greenblatt is SO talented and so good in this film and I cannot wait you see what her future holds!
The last thing I want to touch on is the CG effects.. they totally blew me away! The animals are so realistic and their mouths look so natural when they talk.. unlike other movies.. and not once did I question whether that animal was really there or not. Well done, Disney!
