Product Description

Amazon.ca

Ranking just behind the best of animator Don Bluth's films (Anastasia and The Secret of NIMH), Thumbelina is a bubble-light version of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale. The finger-sized heroine goes about the old-fashioned trials of trying to find a good man, but the film is clever enough to make it endearing for the 3-6 set and more than passable for adult viewers. Barry Manilow provides much of the song score, which helps immensely. The ballad "Let Me Be Your Wings" is as good as Disney's best. Carol Channing and Charo have a good ol' time with their songs too. The voice of Thumbelina is none other than Jodi Benson, who gave voice to Ariel in Disney's The Little Mermaid. --Doug Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Question Oct. 17 2013
By Sophia
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
J'aimerais beaucoups que sur les DVD et Bluray on puisse savoir si le doublage est VFF ou VFQ. J'ai acheté ce film en esperant qu'il soit VFQ mais étais VFF donc pas les paroles qui je connais. J'aimerais beaucoups savoir si une des versions de Thumbelina vendu ici (en bluray de préférence) est VFQ. Si quelqu'un pourrait me répondre, ne vous gênez pas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Lovely, A joy to watch June 19 2006
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Don Bluth movie Jan. 9 2013
By Duchess TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have some other of his movies that are much better than this movie when it comes to a storyline being put together (such as Secret of NIMH, American Tail 1 and 2, Land Before Time series), but I still got quite a few laughs out of it for me to rate it a 4 star movie. It is based on a story by Hans Christian Anderson. The animation was very well done and the music was good too. Sometimes I find it hard for me to find anything 'really funny' for me but this time I would say that this was a good buy from that perspective. Also, the music that was done in this movie, as there was quite a bit of that too, and was arranged by Barry Manilow. I have never been a fan of him, really, but from the music scores that were in it, they were enjoyable. Bottom line then, for a great price you get a fun movie and yes, I would recommend this as another good movie for our DVD library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbelina Dec 27 2011
By Mrs M.
Format:DVD
Hadn't seen this movie since I was a kid and the one I remember is the movie with Danny Kaye. So when I saw this DVD version of Thumbelina I wasn't too sure what to expect. However, I was delighted with the animation. It's not a Walt Disney but it was excellent nevertheless and would recommend it for any kid that does not know the story which was written by Hans Christian Andersen. The music is by Barry Manilow and is very catchy with one song leaving you humming it long after you have watched it. Suitable for any age group including adults who are young at heart! One that you will watch over and over again.
