This proved to be an incredibly good and endearing animated movie.

The animation was top notch and I just assumed it was Disney. It was not. This is a Canadian movie with French collaboration.

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.
