Loved the movie entirely
Thankfully, I am more native than anything. The storyline fits with the lifestyles of the Natives to their country. I have looked in many titles to locate this movie. My grandchildren loved it and that was important to me. It didn't scare my youngest grand baby which in todays film-making seem to get a great joy out of doing. It was age appropriate for my next generation.
The fact that it was an animation kept me from looking to see what else could be done. The shadowing and gradients were fine for the viewing. It was in fact an animation. It irritates me that cartoons are so depicted that they are almost real. take some of the creativity back a step. 2D graphics are still OK. Not everyone has to be on the level of natural drawing. stick figures are still fun.creativity should be fun and this was that.
If this movie was available now, I would purchase it. Not because it has been fine tuned and written so well that you cant tell if it is real or "ameriteque". Children are more interested in cartoons being able to do something than to watch real life do it.
This movie is a must see if you have small influential children that are trained within this realm. I also wouldn't mind a soundtrack to this. My mother and god-mother both loved the soundtrack.
