I love this film. And I am fifteen. I have always liked it. It was my favorite film as a toddler.

I know you probably already know all about the story about Thumbelina, but I am going to tell you anyway. The movie version.

It starts out with the swallow (I don't know how to spell his name but it sounds like shockimo with an accent)telling the story of how Thumbelina came to be. It goes on to show how Thumbelina thinks she is the only one her size. She then meets Prince Corneliouse (I don't think I spelt that right) whom she falls in love with. He promises to visit her the next day, but in the night she is captured by toads. The mother wants Thumbelina to marry her son. With the help of the swallow she escapes and tries to find her way home. In the mean time Corneliouse discoveres her missing and tries to find her. But winter is coming! Thumbelina is on her way with her friend the swallow looking for the veil of the fairies (I think that is what it is called). She is however held up by a beetle who in the end doesn't like her. The toad, who has been searching for Thumbelina, gets him to nab the prince for a trap. Corneliouse has also gotten himself in trouble. He has fallen into a lake and the lake froze! Thumbelina finds herself awakening in Mrs. Feildmouse's den. They go to meet Mr. Mole who likes Thumbelina very much and talks Mrs. Feildmouse into helping him woo Thumbelina. Thinking Corneliouse dead Thumbelina finnaly agrees. The Beetle has found the Prince and brought him to the toad and he tells him where Thumbelina is. The toad goes off to get her. The prince is then freed from the ice by some bugs. During her wedding Thumbelina changes her mind about the mole and runs off. Now everybody is after her.

I didn't see "Thumbelina" until I was in my 20's, but since I love animation, it didn't make much difference. I love this movie and finally got it on DVD a couple days ago. Jodi Benson did another great job lending her voice to the lead character and the music was great too. The only complaints I have about the movie, to echo other reviewers, is that some of the animals in the farm were very strange looking. Also, I couldn't help but notice that Thumbelina was constantly losing her balance no matter where she was standing. Still, I think Don Bluth did an excellent job on "Thumbelina" and that it deserved much more recognition. I admit, I'm a softy for fairy tales, and I actually love her innocent, naive personality. It was great to see her make the right decision at the end though, even knowing she might be alone. Unlike what some reviewers have said, I think that makes her a great role model. We all have to go through a learning process. But without being silly and over analyzing the film's psychological effect on society, it's just a fun and enjoyable movie that I would recommend for any young girl or adult who's young at heart.

My grand daughter enjoyed this movie so much. It was so incredible to watch her relate to the music. And towards the end, she smiled so big, she clapped her hands with joy, and she walked to bed dancing. This will definitely become one of her favorite movies. This was a excellent buy.

I just rented this movie this weekend and watched it with my six year old daughter. The story line is not so predictable like Disney ones are, and there are a lot of twists and turns in the plot. I don't like the fact that this is again another "My Prince Will Come, and we'll live Happily Ever After" story like all the others, but at least there is MORE to this story than that.
It shows that males can lie and cheat to get a girl...and that sometimes you have to look out for yourself and don't believe everything you hear. So based on that I give it 5 stars...plus the singing is great, and so is the animation. This movie is not cheesy like some others you may find for kids. Definitely get this movie, it is more than worth it.

I'm fifteen, and I saw this movie just recently while babysitting for some little kids. That was a week and two days ago. The movie and songs have been going through my head ever since. I have to say, I loved it, as much as I did when it first came out. I agree with all of you that those tufts of hair on Thumbelina are kinda funky looking. The scene in the mole's house is one of my favorites. I love the song "Sun". It is really poetic and symbolic. All in all, I think it is a great movie, although certain aspects of it are a bit farfetched. Such as Cornelius freezing, and the bugs just thawing him out. Hello? How unreal is that? But I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good love story or good music.

I am amazed and disgusted at the absolute kitsch that appears in this film in the guise of entertainment. Thumbelina as a character causes me to lament and weep for all those who follow, for lo, they shall be forced to endure her witless--dare I say it--drug induced rambling, absence of neural tissue, and apparent constant readiness to sell herself in one form or another to the nearest insectoid male, up to and including a foppish, brainless young man with wings. No one's child should be forced to endure this film. The very fact that it was created speaks of the coming doom of humanity.
