Review: It features some measure of narrative detail, but audiences aren’t going to pick it up with ease and it’s otherwise not terribly interesting.

Review: There’s a lot in this trailer that will appeal to younger audiences: the bright colors, the simplified humor, and the idea of getting the parents out of the way for awhile. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows as there’s a hidden darkness beneath it all, but whether that comes through in the film or not may depend on how much the viewer reads into things.

Oscar Prospects:

A solid possibility for a Best Animated Feature nomination.
