The masterpiece of all fairy tales
on 13 January 2004
Thumbelina is a truly enchanting animation!
I was first introduced to it at the age of 8, I was completely overwhelmed by the exciting and original characters, I am now 17 and I still adore the story and its music.
It revolves around Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale, but a little jazzed up.
Thumbelina feels alone and lost in this big world as she thinks that she is the only small person. Her mother may tell her of fairies and happy endings but it is still a dream. That night she meets Cornelius, the fairy Prince and her true love.
They sing a beautiful duet together, let me be your wings, the concept is dreamy and romantic! But that night she is kidnapped by a toad. Winter is approaching and it is a dangerous time for so small a person.
She feels even more lost than before, for she is but the size of your thumb. Will she find Cornelius again and find her way home?
Buy this film and you'll find out for yourself.
