Abominable Blu-ray Review #AbominableMovie

From the studio that brought you How to Train Your Dragon, this heartwarming and humorous story follows teenage Yi (Bennet) as she encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in China, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Trainor) and Peng (Tsai), name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish (Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Paulson) to help Everest get home. Heartwarming and a visual masterpiece, “ABOMINABLE is a movie for all ages with laughter and life lessons and a little bit of wonder thrown in” (Allison Rose, Flick Direct).

What a great movie, this was! My kids were very excited when I presented them with a family movie night! Everyone grabbed their blankets and we headed for the couch. The family movie has an interesting story line that appeals to all ages. My kids ages vary from 11 to 3 and everyone including myself and my husband were intrigued and interested in the movie for the entire time.

The female lead, Yi is a very interesting character who embarks on a journey of finding herself and where she fits in the world after the loss of her father. She stumbles upon Everest, her new found Yeti friend and demonstrated much determination to help Everest get back home to his family, where he belongs. Peng a younger companion provides much comic relief throughout this exciting story. All three of the characters that take on the adventure of travel demonstrate bravery and break down personal barriers that were holding them back from becoming who they truly are. Throughout the movie, Yi and Jin also begin to develop respect and appreciation for each others strengths and values. This movie has so many opportunities for discussions about reality life events and situations.

My entire family truly enjoyed this movie and would highly recommend it to any viewer of any age! Abominable is now out on blu-ray and DVD for purchase, this would make a great gift to watch over the holidays. To celebrate the release of the movie being out for purchase, Dreamworks has a fun and unique downloadable Bao recipes created by Top Chef 's Chef Shirley Chung that you can make with your family.
