Sure it does tell the story of Thumbelina except it's narrated by an audio speaker at a crappy exhibit room at the now long demolished Pirates World theme park. This teenage girl who also plays the title character observes each diagram that depicts each scene of Thumbelina. And I guess she's using her imagination to envision herself as Thumbelina as the lady on the audio speaker tells the whole story. The characters of the Thumbelina story all look like they were paid very little cause no one famous was even casted for this movie cause I bet it didn't cost anything to make it. All of the sets which are suppose to be the dioramas at the exhibit all look as crappy as if they really as made out of color paper, Styrofoam, and paper ma-shay. The costumes aren't too appealing cause they all look like they were constructed at some Drama theater class in Florida. The weirdest costumers would have to be these bugs(if they are bugs) the look like multi-arm birds that hop around. Those creatures are the weirdest ones you'll ever see in the story. Plus the singing was a little unbearable too. It'll make you wish the story could rap up right about now.
This make the Don Bluth Thumbelina look like a classic. Cause for this one it just looks like the director was paid by Pirates World to promote their theme park rather than just tell a plain version of Thumbelina. There's not much trivia given for this movie, but it's certainly a movie that'll weird kids out. If you're looking for the worst Thumbelina film, then you succeeded in your search.
