The Tale of Despereaux Reviews

Brian Webster
Apollo Guide

Extras on the disc include a featurette on the making of the film, an interactive map of the Kingdom of Dor, and a little featurette on the 'top ten uses for oversized ears.'

Like the title character in the story it tells, The Tale of Despereaux is a noble effort that more or less manages to create a kind of instantly likable post-modern fable

The Tale of Despereaux is actually the tale of Despereaux and several other characters and the whole mish-mash becomes too top-heavy for its own good.
