I was worried about this film after being disappointed with Rise of the Guardians. I was pleasantly surprised with a fun, bright, and insightful movie. The range of characters is great with different personalities in each person. The animation is beautiful and the scenery is gorgeous. It starts out a bit slow, making you question if the movie will come through, but it quickly picks up and pulls you in with laugh-out-loud humor and a well-paced story. The fantasy and real-world aspects of this film mesh perfectly together to produce a great movie for all ages.
