"Exclusively from Walmart & Walmart.com, journey down under and meet a whole new breed of hero in this laugh-filled, action-packed animated adventure with an all-star voice cast, including Rob Schneider, Tim Curry and Alan Cumming. Johnny (Schneider) is a rare white koala bear who just wants to fit in and make friends. But when a twist of fate mistakenly transforms him into a fearless protector of animals, called “Koala Kid,” Johnny finds himself in over his head on a thrilling trek across the outback. With help from his hilarious new sidekicks, including a crafty Tasmanian devil, a lovable lizard and a boomerang-flinging female koala, Johnny may just outwit a villainous crocodile named Bog (Cumming) and become a true hero after all."
I always love family movies that have a great message in them and Koala Kid is definitely one of those movies. Koala Kid is a koala bear that is white instead of the normal grey color of most koalas. In the beginning of the movie, the other kid koalas make fun of him for being "different." So Johnny decides to find someplace where he can be appreciated and he ends up a the circus where the real adventure begins and he must save his new friends from an evil crocodile!
My kiddos loved this movie and I have to say that the imagery is beautiful in it. I loved the characters especially the girl koala bear who has mastered the boomerang and so did my two daughters. I love how strong she was and she made a great role model for my girls. I also liked how my kiddos instantly picked up the message that "Being Different" is not a bad thing. I always try to tell them to be their own self and be unique! This dvd helps me with that message.
This dvd is definitely a great family movie and should definitely be enjoyed by the whole family. I think it would make a great gift and also a great addition to a family's movie collection. The dvd is available now at Wal-Marts nationwide and online for just $ 16.96 so be sure to grab a copy today!
