(2019) (voices of Chloe Bennet, Albert Tsai) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Animated Adventure: A Chinese teenager and her two friends try to help a magical Yeti get home to Mount Everest.
- Chinese teenager Yi (voice of CHLOE BENNET) is still grieving the recent death of her father. To cope, she has thrown herself into a series of odd jobs to make enough money so she can go on the cross-country China trip she and her dad always dreamed of. Her plans get sidetracked when she discovers a magical Yeti (voice of JOSEPH IZZO) hiding on the roof of her apartment building. It soon becomes clear that the creature is on the run from a wealthy industrialist named Mr. Burnish (voice of EDDIE IZZARD) and his duplicitous scientist-assistant, Dr. Zara (voice of SARAH PAULSON), who want to recapture the beast and exploit him.
Yi ascertains that the Yeti only wants to get home to his family on Mount Everest, and so she takes it upon herself to make sure he does. She affectionately nicknames him "Everest" and is joined on her trek by her awkward, but well-meaning neighbor and classmate, Peng (voice of ALBERT TSAI), and his cousin Jin (voice of TENZING NORGAY TRAINOR), the best-looking and most popular boy in school.
Yi lies to her mother (voice of MICHELLE WONG) and grandmother Nai Nai (TSAI CHIN) that she has gone to visit a college with Jin in Beijing. But soon she, Everest, and their companions learn that Burnish and especially Dr. Zara will stop at nothing to get Everest back in their possession.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Young kids and tweens will likely have great interest.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For action and some mild rude humor.
