The animation, especially the fast-paced sequences are as good as anything done by Disney or Dreamworks — possibly better!
Usual Disney ‘tear-jerker‘ storyline — orphans overcoming adversity to excel. Some parallels to 1997 Anastasia — given that Paris figures heavily in both movies.
I had NOT heard of this movie.
The renaming was confusing.
But, definitely, indubitably, a good, compelling Disney-genre film. Kids 8 – 12 would lap it up.
Glad we stumbled upon it serendipitously.
