Dove Review

The animation in this movie is fantastic! I really enjoyed the color techniques used. The characters are very well rounded and dynamic. The theme of this movie is to protect the forests of our natural environment. The animation and characters are targeted for younger kids, but there are a lot of fantasy violent moments between the animals as well as the antagonist Mrs. D’Abondo (voiced by Anjelica Huston).

We are recommending this movie for ages twelve and above, but some parents will feel comfortable with their younger children viewing it. Please check the content listing below and please note that we do not recommend it for very young children due to frightening images.

This movie will keep your children on the edge of their seats with all the fun-filled adventures and action-packed scenes. We are pleased to award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this DVD.
