If your kids are anything like mine, every once in a while they discover a movie so much that they have to watch it over and over and over and over again until they’ve memorized the whole movie. Then they watch it a few more times just for fun. We just received STELLALUNA the mail to review this morning, and already my children have watching it three times and they were angry when I turned off the television and told them that it was time to hang out with me. (Okay, I guess that’s not the strongest endorsement, but they really did love the move!)
Based on the beloved, best-selling children’s book by Janell Cannon, the fun-filled animated feature STELLALUNA follows a spirited young fruit bat who finds friendship, love and acceptance in the most unexpected places!
When the adorable young fruit bat Stellaluna is separated from her mother, she’s adopted by a family of birds. Soon, however, she discovers finds that she just can’t fit in. Her playmates like to sleep at night; she wants to fly. They whistle and sing; she doesn’t even have a beak! But just when it seems like Stellaluna will always be an outsider, she makes an amazing discovery that’ll help her to cherish the things that make her different. And, she’ll also discover that an open mind and an open heart can lead to the greatest gifts of all.
I have to say that I am really digging this movie. It’s funny, it has a great message, and the kids are in love. Luckily for us all, STELLALUNA will hit the streets on Tuesday, February 14th (just in time for a last minute Valentine’s Day gift to the kiddos). The movie also comes with some great bonus features including:
- Stellaluna Activity Booklet
- A Read Along Function…….. AND
- A Sing-Along Feature
I suggest you all run out and grab your copy ASAP!
