The animated movie “Smallfoot” is hitting theaters September 28th. This movie was really funny, while still managing to have a consistent plot. The movie is about yeti that live on a mountaintop surrounded by clouds. These yeti have a set of basic beliefs written in stone. Literally carved into stones worn as a robe by the village leader, is the rules and beliefs of the tribe. These include some such as, you must ring the gong every day for the giant light-up snail to appear (Sun). Another is “Smallfeet (Humans) do not exist”, and “the mountain is held up by large tree trunks above the nothingness,” and “Below the clouds is nothingness.”
These are all obviously lies. However, the tribe believes them. So, when Migo (The main character) is wandering around, his world is turned upside down when he sees a plane crash in front of him, and out of it comes a smallfoot. However, the human’s parachute catches the wind while Migo gets the tribe, and his evidence is lost.
Luckily for him though, he is not the only one who believes in the smallfoot. A secret group of the yetis’ approach him while he is wandering and he soon becomes friends with them. They use rope to lower him beneath the clouds, but another yeti approaches them, and they get startled enough to drop the rope. Migo rolls down the mountain and finds a town. He finds the human he saw on the mountain, and grabs him. Migo takes the human back, and they communicate through motions on the way back. Finally, Migo gets home and shows his tribe. I will not tell you the reaction, but the rest of the movie includes the flipping of a yeti tribe’s world, lies and cover-us, and even an attempted murder. (no actual murder scenes included, just the kidnapping of a human and the uncertainty of what the leader will do with it.)
I think that everyone should see this movie. It is very funny and still kid friendly. However, even though it is animated, it still includes actors like Danny DeVito, James Corden, and Channing Tatum. This is a great movie to see either at home with your family, or at a theater with your friends. Either way, I think you’ll enjoy it.
