The only possible audience for this film are young children and their exceedingly bored parents.

Trumpet of the Swan is not just lackluster. It's also lackbeauty, lackhumor and lackquality.

May 11, 2001
May hold the attention of the very young, but despite marginal attempts at Disney-style cleverness, the simplistic writing, flat animation and sloppy direction will leave adults bored.

One ugly duckling of a cartoon.

An unmemorable feature-length cartoon destined for a quick trip to video shelves.

The animation is poor.
May 10, 2001
A lame duck.
May 10, 2001
The animation is unimaginative and uninspiring.
May 10, 2001
Though colorful and well-meaning, Trumpet of the Swan collapses as an emotional experience, its restless script unable to build a resonance of feeling that can lift the audience collectively.
May 10, 2001
These people are responsible for lots of those bad, bland '80s Disney features like The Fox and the Hound. Now, their generic, cheap, animation style has murdered another beautiful E.B. White novel.
