Today is the cinema premiere date for Monster Island! It’s fantastic new animated feature from the producer of Top Cat Begins, and the writer of box office hits Madagascar and The Jungle Book, featuring voice talent from Despicable Me.
“A young boy discovers he’s not entirely human and heads to Monster Island to discover his true identify, in this fabulous new animated family adventure that fans of Monsters Inc and Despicable Me will adore.”
It’s the debut feature film from the talented, award-winning animator Leopoldo Aguilar. Monster Island is what every family film should be with laugh out funny moments mixed with thrilling parts and a few tiny bit frightening bits too. It’s packed with witty one-liners and has memorable characters, all manner of extraordinary beasties and an extremely hissable villain.
This is the film to see during the summer holiday and a great choice for the whole family.
Read the synopsis below or scroll down a bit further to watch the trailer:
“When young Lucas finds out he’s not really a human; the news changes his whole world. Especially since his first monster transformation happened in front of the most popular kids at school! After unreasonably blaming his dad for keeping his identity a secret, the angry and embarrassed Lucas runs away from home.
His search for Monster Island and his real roots takes him on a fabulously scary journey that puts him face-to-face with more tentacles, fangs and far-out situations than he can shake one of his new wings at. Ultimately Lucas learns that being a freak, isn’t freaky – it means you’re a member of a brand new type of family, you can proudly call your own.”
I’ve not seen it yet but it looks like something kids will love! Will you be watching it in the cinema?
Update: Monster Island is out on Digital HD and VOD 9th October and DVD 16th October 2017.
