*We received a complimentary copy of the movie, “A Stork’s Journey” from Lionsgate to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own and not influenced in anyway.
Our family was able to review “A Stork’s Journey” on DVD. I am amazed every time a new animated movie comes out. If you grew up in the 70/80s like I did before 4k, High Def, Surround Sound, DVDs, Computer Animation…it’s like we were in the stone ages! Think back to what it was like watching a movie on a VHS tape! (Remember, be kind, rewind LOL) now that seems like torture to your eyes!
My oldest wrote the review for the movie. Here are her thoughts:
A Stork’s Journey is a great movie about a sparrow who gets confused about who he really is. At first glance, I honestly thought this would be a good movie. While watching it, the movie proved me wrong deeming it great! I get that the beginning was to set up the storyline, but that was just sad. Just as a note, I absolutely loved the art style of the movie. Just the way the art style flowed with the characters personality and the settings in the movie was fabulous. This is definitely a family approved movie perfect for a family movie night…with popcorn of course.
Featuring the voice talents of Drake Bell (Superhero Movie, “Drake and Josh”), YouTube star Justine “iJustine” Ezarik, and Jane Lynch (“Glee,” Wreck-It Ralph), A Stork’s Journey follows Richard, a sparrow orphaned at birth and raised by storks who believes that he is a stork, too! But when winter comes and the storks prepare to migrate to Africa, his stork family must reveal his true identity and leave him behind in the forest with the other sparrows since he would not survive the long journey. Determined to prove he is a stork after all, Richard ventures south on an epic adventure, accompanied by friends big and small, to unleash his true potential and be reunited with his family.
