Audience Reviews for Mio in the Land of Faraway


It is made out to be as great as "The Neverending Story" but is very low budget. The set pieces and creature designs aren't anything grand. It has a song-singing Gnome, a giant furry wookiee creature and children which turn into butterflies. It has a European flavor to it all. Little kids will be amused. I got some chuckles for how cheap it was. Superchannel used to air this repeatedly.
