We received screening passes to see the Abominable movie in theaters. All opinions are my own.
I love watching new movies with my family, especially animated movies. I had seen a couple of trailers for Abominable but wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I am going to tell you right now, I LOVED this movie! We laughed so much, had a few emotional moments and the overall storyline was fantastic.
The Abominable movie starts out with “Everest” (the name they give to the Yeti) being trapped in a facility. He is able to escape and hide on the top of a building, but he got injured. Yi (played by Chloe Bennet) finds Everest and is able to bond with him through her music. She plays the violin.
Over the course of a day, she finds not only herself and Everest on the run but also her friends Peng (played by Albert Tsai) and Jin (played by Tenzing Norgay Trainor) on a crazy adventure trying to get Everest back to Mt. Everest, where his home is.
They are chased by Dr. Zara (played by Sarah Paulson) and Burnish (played by Eddie Izzard) and their team who want to capture the yeti and will stop at nothing. There are several twists and turns and a lot of learning and growing in the movie.
We love that the violin is a huge part of the movie. It is her connection to her father who passed away not long before. My daughter plays the violin and so we all loved seeing it upfront and center in a movie.
Overall, the movie is clean, really funny, and perfect for all ages. This is a must-see this weekend when it comes out. I am betting that you will want to go see it more than once. It is just that good!
ABOUT ABOMINABLE MOVIE
DreamWorks Animation and Pearl Studio’s co-production Abominable takes audiences on an epic 2,000-mile adventure from the streets of a Chinese city to the breathtaking Himalayan snowscapes.
When teenage Yi (Chloe Bennet, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building, she and her friends, Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai), name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth.
But the trio of friends will have to stay one step ahead of Burnish (Eddie Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) to help Everest get home.
