This animation tale about an elephant named
Horton, who is able to hear a population of tiny people living
on a dust speck.
Of course no one else possesses Horton's
elephant ears, so none of the jungle residents hear anything
coming from the dust speck.
Deciding that the elephant is crazy, Horton's
fellow creatures decide that something must be done about him
before he becomes a danger to the community.
Although the story goes to extremes, Horton
Hears a Who! teaches a solid lesson in tolerance.
After all, a person is a person, no matter
The look may be different, but the rhyme's
the same in this "modernized" version of Theodor S.
Geisel's book of the same name.
One hour longer than its TV debut, the
animation is stylish and the voice characterizations are right
on, making it a perfect family film.
Who'd of thought?
This family friendly film for kids is a
very tiny tale, but has a lot of good messages for all ages.
The high-spirited translation of the 1954
classic book of big helping the small is from the Blue Sky Studios,
who are the people behind the film Ice Age.
They are true to the Dr. Seuss vision and
make full use of GCI power without sacrificing the delicacy of
the author's illustrations.
They deliver an amazing, colorful, visual
animated winning story of an elephant who never forgets that,
"A person's a person, no matter how small."
