I just didn't click with this movie at all. The score is really nice and the voice acting is great. The animation is good but I really disliked the character designs. They just looked so fake and plastic and smooth.
The whole theme and message just rang hollow to me as well. It was just like 'be you' 'find something in life'. But that was it. It was so surface level. There was no nuance to it, the characters were just like "I want to find something in life". That's so heavy handed to me and not Interesting.
The story was also a mixed bag of plots. I couldn't roll my eyes hard enough when a certain plot shown up. It is the most over done, boring and infuriating plot that for some reason shows up in every other kids movie. It was just so boring and made me just disconnect from the film because up until then I was pretty engaged with it and the world that they had created then they threw it away for a god awful plot that no one likes.
I also didn't find it emotional at all. I thought that this plot would have really resonated with me but it was just so hollow and I don't know, kind of dull.
