Dreamworks’ newest children’s movie of 2019, Abominable, portrays a heartfelt story that put a smile on our faces. Despite the character personality differences, they all came together to accomplish a common goal of saving a creature from its impending doom. This is very similar to the plot and main goal of Dreamworks, How to Train Your Dragon. The graphics and character design resemble closely to Disney Pixar’s Coco.

This gives the film an overall warm feeling, despite being set in the Himalayan Mountains. The musical element of the movie added more insight to the main character’s personality. It also gave more character to the abominable snowman, Everest. The creature has the power with his humming to make plants and other items in nature grow to unimaginable sizes. This is important to the overall storyline because it gets the characters out of trouble several times throughout the film.

This helps to keep the movie exciting and moving along. Several times throughout the film he manipulates nature to keep the adventure exciting for the audience. There never seemed to be a dull moment. The characters’ bond with each other can show children the importance of sticking together while things around them go wrong, even if they don’t necessarily like the people they are around.

The humor in Abominable added a sense of happiness and relief while the main problem occurring was being solved. The humor several characters made helped keep the situation light and the characters hopeful for a good outcome. This humor is suitable for all ages and keeps everyone entertained.

All audience members could relate to at least one of the characters at some point in time. The characters go through problems some kids may be going through while watching this movie. How the characters react and cope with these problems can help these children do the same. This movie is a wonderful experience for the whole family.
