The Story

Tuesday, the parrot, lives with his buddies on an island in paradise. Or at least they did, until they woke up after a nasty storm and found themselves looking at a strange creature that has washed up on their shore. This strange creature turns out to be Robinson Crusoe. The first thought in Tuesday’s head was that Robinson could be his way to get off the island. Robinson befriends Tuesday and his friends, in hopes of making survival easier. It takes a while, since Robinson doesn’t speak “animal” and the animals don’t speak “human.” They are just going along happily co-existing on the island, when out of nowhere a couple of wild cats show up and try to take over the island. A war breaks out, but Robinson and his animal friends stick together and find the power of true friendship.

My Thoughts

I found this movie to be truly interesting. Being an adult, but I am more drawn to animated movies, rather than action films. I feel that this movie is one that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. My husband and two teenage boys watched this with me, and we all enjoyed the movie. It kept us engaged, and wasn’t boring at all. The story line was interesting, and the animation was well executed. Overall, I am very pleased with this movie, and I am happy to have it in my collection.
