My husband and I don't have children, but we both enjoy animated movies. We had NEVER heard of this one, and didn't see any previews beforehand. I enjoyed a lot of aspects of this movie, it reminds me of a lot of my favorite movies. Here is a basic rundown of the plot, I will try not to spoil it...:
A teenage girl loses her mother and must go live with her obsessive, disgraced scientist, father; who believes there are tiny people living in the forest. Meawhile, in the forest, there is a battle being waged between the Boggins and the Queen, who is the life force of all things. The Queen is defended by the Leaf Men, hummingbird riding "Samurai" soldiers. The paths of the girl and the Queen entangle during an important forest event that will determine the future of its existence.

...with a dash of a few other movie flavors thrown in.
The only thing I didn't like was the use of the crows and the bats as evil characters. The Boggins represent disease or virus, things that infect and destroy the ecosystem. Bats and crows are both species that help to keep disease in check. Bats control insect population and other species of bats are integral to pollination. Crows are the garbage disposals, and help to clean disease carrying carion from the environment. Aside from that, it was a fun movie that will likely get watched many times.
