Movie Info

Based on the children's book by John Burningham, Granpa brings together original music, heartfelt characterizations, and a universal story line. Emily has a unique imagination, or so she thinks, until she meets her match in Granpa. Together, the two bring to life an awesome jungle, a rolling sea, and a lovely Victorian ballroom. When they start scheming, there is nothing they can't accomplish. Granpa, though declining in health, indulges Emily with specially focused attention. The soundtrack matches the story's magical quality with a middle school choir keeping time with a full orchestra. Lyrical Brit Sarah Brightman contributes a tune entitled "Make Believe." The animation fits seamlessly with the mostly musical narration. The soothing voice of Peter Ustinov completes the tale. Granpa is recommended for ages two and up. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi
