Adventure, Animated, Comedy
I wonder how parents will feel about taking their kids to this animated adventure when they discover its message is “question and reject well-meaning religious dogma when it foments division.” High in Himalayan community of yetis, good-natured Migo (Channing Tatum) encounters a human—dubbed a “smallfoot” in local mythology—which rocks his world-view since yetis are taught that such creatures do not exist. Migo eventually crosses paths with a TV nature-show host (James Corden), with the two forming a friendship despite their language barrier, but the narrative focuses on how Migo and the rest of his community processes empirical information that runs contrary to the teachings of the Stonekeeper (Common). The visual world-building feels on the thin side at times, along with characterizations like the Stonekeeper’s rebellious daughter (Zendaya). But a couple of catchy musical numbers and solid physical comedy from director Karey Kirkpatrick (Over the Hedge) keep the energy level high enough to be satisfying, while the story offers young viewers a much-needed lesson in realizing when facing reality is the only way to make the world better.
