(2019) (voices of Brianna Denski, John Oliver) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Computer-Animated Dramedy: A young girl stumbles upon a real-world representation of an amusement park she created with her imagination and must save it from a darkness that's spread over it following her mom's illness.
- June (voice of BRIANNA DENSKI) is a girl who lives with her Mom (voice of JENNIFER GARNER) and Dad (voice of MATTHEW BRODERICK) who encourage her imagination, creativity, and ability to build things. Her favorite is imagining a sprawling amusement park that she and her Mom have named Wonder Land where a variety of talking animals build wild rides and welcome human guests. But when her Mom ends up gravely ill and must go away for treatment, June loses her desire to continue and puts away all of her Wonder Land drawings, toys and such.
When she's sent off to math camp with her best friend, Banky (voice of OEV MICHAEL URBAS), she realizes she can't leave her dad alone. With Banky creating a distraction for her, she leaves the bus group and heads off through the woods when she comes across a long-abandoned and overgrown roller coaster car. It ends up taking her into a real-life version of Wonder Land, complete with talking animals representing her stuffed toys.
There's Peanut (voice of NORBERT LEO BUTZ), a chimp who comes up with the ideas -- from hearing June or her Mom's voice telling him what to create next -- as well as beaver siblings Gus (voice of KENAN THOMPSON) and Cooper (voice of KEN JEONG) who build everything. Erudite porcupine Steve (voice of JOHN OLIVER) is the safety officer and Boomer (voice of KEN HUDSON CAMPBELL) the bear tests the rides, while Greta (voice of MILA KUNIS) the boar is the boss of them all.
But unlike in June's imagination, things aren't great in the real-world Wonder Land. In fact, they're downright bad what with "zombie" chimp dolls having overrun the place that they're tearing apart bit by bit. That's all happened since an ominous vortex known as The Darkness appeared over the park. From that point on, and realizing she's the cause of that, June does what she can to make things right and save her and the animals' park.
