Not what it should have been
16 November 2018 | by franbelle10See all my reviews

It is not bad, but it is not good either. In fact it is yet another story of attempted overthrow of the throne, something that has already been seen 100 times - just this time, transposed into the universe of Funny little beasts. It's not badly done (in 3D animation), it's just disappointing. It's just another umpteenth ordinary story of fighting between the good and the bad. The enchanting universe of the book and the delicacy of texts written for children is lost. Not to mention the pictorial touch very banal (unlike the TV series that reproduced the gouache style and was shimmering). Pity. Maybe another director will take over the torch.
