What they say: Get ready for a new take on a classic tale as we get lost with Robinson Crusoe and a bunch of adorable animals on a desert island. From the makers of A Turtle’s Tale and The House of Magic comes a fun-filled adventure for the whole family to enjoy.
On a tiny exotic island, Tuesday, an outgoing parrot lives with his quirky animal friends in paradise. However, Tuesday can’t stop dreaming about discovering the world. After a violent storm, Tuesday and his friends wake up to find a strange creature on the beach: Robinson Crusoe. Tuesday immediately views Crusoe as his ticket off the island to explore new lands. Likewise, Crusoe soon realizes that the key to surviving on the island is through the help of Tuesday and the other animals. It isn’t always easy at first, as the animals don’t speak “human.” Join Crusoe on a fun-filled wild ride for the whole family and rediscover a new take on this classic tale! Slowly but surely, they all start living together in harmony, until one day, when their comfortable life is overturned by two savage cats, who wish to take control of the island. A battle ensues between the cats and the group of friends but Crusoe and the animals soon discover the true power of friendship up against all odds (even savage cats).
What we say: “We didn’t catch this film at the cinema so I looked forward to snuggling on the sofa with my boys to watch it at home…lights out, curtains drawn and popcorn at the ready!
Stranded on a desert island, this Robinson Crusoe has a best friend who is a Macaw named Tuesday (rather than Friday!) and the rest of the islands cute animal inhabitants watch (and laugh!) as he tries to build a home and shelter from the wreckage of a ship…
Mild threat comes in the form of the ships starving cats, whose desire to catch and eat the islands animals forms the rest of the films story.
My children (age 5) both laughed out loud and thoroughly enjoyed the film. The animation is great, as expected in childrens films now, and I’m sure this is a film that we will watch again.”
Robinson Crusoe is available from many high street stores and also online from Amazon.
