What a strange kids movie this was. I'm not sure if it's a difference in culture here, but if I was a kid watching this, I would have some serious nightmares(especially when la Llorona shows her demon face). It gets pretty dark too, for example one scene showing a character almost getting quartered. As for the movie itself, it's actually pretty interesting. There's some silliness sure, because technically it is a kids movie still but yeah.. hard to imagine the kiddo's watching this here in this day and age.
For kids who are able to speak Spanish (yes I am bragging a bit) La Leyenda de la Llorona will be a fun if not maybe a bit to scary cartoon. The story of a ghost who walks Central and South America looking for her children who died years ago is a familiar story to Hispanics and this cartoon gives a scary but fun take on the legend. The subtitles are a bit off as far as translation goes so bilingual children will really be the only ones that enjoy it.
