Ms. Cat’s Review
The movie starts out showing just how imaginative June is and how Wonder Park came to be through the use of positive affirmation and parenting.
Then darkness enters June’s life, both literally and figuratively, that brings her wonder, belief, and imagination to a screeching halt as she becomes lost in a world she feels is crumbling around her.
As she tries to find herself and continue “just living life” she stumbles upon her park, Wonder Park, come to life. The graphics are fantastic; colorful and wildly filled with wonder (no pun intended).
As she struggles to save the park from the “Chimpan-Zombies” (think I spelled that right) she finds herself and the enlightenment she needed to be able to face her fears of loss and heartache.
There was just the right amount of humor to keep things lighthearted after such a cry-worthy beginning. My 13-year old twins and myself were dabbing our eyes at the momentous beginning and ending.
The movie is full of heart and love that, at points, helps us remember our youth and for our older kids to remember how much we mean to them and them to us. I say older, because the meaning behind it was a bit difficult for the younger ones to follow and understand.
