A Brief Info About the Little Sorcerer Movie

An evil witch has imprisoned Prince Alex (Chris Niosi) in the body of a mouse, and the only way for him to return to human form is to find the fabled Life Stone. Fortunately, the prince has two faithful companions, Ella and Crystal (Geri Courtney-Austein and Ashley Bornancin), who join forces to embark on a cross-country rescue mission in order to save him. Their friendship will be put to the test as they encounter more challenging difficulties along the road.

What do you call it when a tiny kid tries to make up a narrative and gets into the habit of repeating things like, “and then this happened, and when this occurred, and then this happened”? That is exactly what this film is. There is no real point to the plot; it is simply a series of events that happen without any discernible reason in a world populated by characters who lack both personalities and goals. In a strange twist, the most engaging part of the film is the opening exposition, which explains why Alex is a mouse and how he came to be. Why didn’t the producers pay more attention to that story? Instead, this production comes across as a cheesy sequel to a film that never existed in the first place. This is the first time that any of the key characters are involved in the climactic battle. It is impossible to describe all of the weird choices made in this script because there are far too many to mention here.

The animation is cheesy and uninteresting, and I spent the entire film trying to figure out whether the language was dubbed or spoken in English. The mouths are somewhat in sync with the voices, but not quite. In addition, for approximately 10 minutes, a side character appears whose recording quality is considerably different from the rest of the cast. According to the sound quality, this actor appears to have been recorded underwater or something similar, which speaks to the low amount of attention that was put into every part of this production.

There is very little bad content, which makes this appropriate for the majority of audiences; nonetheless, I can’t imagine anyone outside of the preschool demographic having a good time with it. The themes are straightforward and unambiguous, and they center on friendship, trust, and forgiveness. Have a really little child at home who is interested in magic and talking animal sidekicks? They might have a good time with this movie. Alternatively, you could turn on literally any other major animated picture and receive the same features, only in higher quality, so I guess the decision is up to the individual.
