I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
The new animated adventure, with original music and an all-star cast, SMALLFOOT turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human. This family friendly film is in theaters September 28th and I just got home from an advance screening with my family for #SmallFootSaturday and I am here to say that it is a must-see with the kids!
News of this “smallfoot” throws the simple Yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in an all new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.
Check out the trailer below!
“Smallfoot” stars Channing Tatum (“The LEGO® Batman Movie,” the “Jump Street” films) as the Yeti, Migo, and James Corden (“Trolls,” “The Emoji Movie”) as the Smallfoot, Percy. Also starring are Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”), Common (“Selma”), LeBron James (upcoming “Space Jam 2”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Danny DeVito (“The Lorax,” Oscar nominee for “Erin Brockovich”), Yara Shahidi (TV’s “Black-ish”), Ely Henry (TV’s “Justice League Action”), and Jimmy Tatro (“22 Jump Street”).
“Smallfoot” is directed by Karey Kirkpatrick, Annie Award-winning director of “Over the Hedge” and Annie nominee for the screenplays for “Chicken Run” and “James and the Giant Peach.” The film is produced by Bonne Radford (“Curious George”), Glenn Ficarra (“Storks,” “The is Us,”) and John Requa (“Storks,” “This is Us”). Serving as executive producers are Nicholas Stoller, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Jared Stern, Sergio Pablos, and Kirkpatrick. The creative team includes editor Peter Ettinger, and composer Heitor Pereira.

Yes, I am sure many adults can see the where the plot is going right from the beginning and that is fine because the movie takes you a fun journey with twists, turns and a lot of humor that kids and adults can both enjoy. The characters were fun and what surprised me was how much I enjoyed even the main human character, Percy.
SPOILER ALERT: I am not an emotional person but even I got a case of the feels at the very end of the movie! The whole movie just comes together with PERFECTION. There is not a thing I would change about the whole movie. I absolutely recommend this movie to all my friends with young children and I want to watch this movie time and time again. There is nothing scary about these Yetis!
