"Mia and the Migoo" DVD Review...
"Created from an astonishing 500,000 hand-painted frames of animation, MIA AND THE
MIGOO is a beautiful and thrilling family adventure, with stunning backgrounds inspired by
Van Gogh, Monet, and Cezanne. The film is a man-against-nature fable, pitting wild-haired
young heroine Mia against the forces of destruction, with the future of life on Earth in the
balance. One night Mia has a premonition. So after saying a few words of parting to her three
aunts, she sets out on a journey across mountains and jungles in search of her father, who
has been trapped in a landslide at a disaster-plagued construction site on a remote tropical
lake. In the middle of the lake stands the ancient Tree of Life, watched over by innocent,
bumbling forest spirits called the Migoo, who grow and change shape as they please,
morphing from small childlike beings to petulant giants. It is the Migoo who have been
disrupting the construction to protect this sacred site – and now together with Mia they join in
a fight to find Mia's father and save the Tree."
What we thought: This is a pretty cute movie with a really great message. It is entertaining, but also teaches the younger generation about taking care of our Earth. Mia and the Migoo is full of fun and colorful characters and features an incredibly talented cast. It can be a little dark at times and there is some adult language used so it is probably more appropriate for older kiddos. Overall, we think this would make a great end-of-summer movie/lesson for ages 8+. ABCD Diaries gives Mia and the Migoo an A!
