Review: All Creatures Big and Small Film FREE for Limited Time on Google Play
The story of Noah and the ark is well known. So many stories have been told from the point of views of Noah and other humans. But what about the animals? Not so many stories tells the Ark tale from an animals point of view.
Note: I received an advanced screening for the purpose of this review. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
But on July 1, 2015, the animated film All Creatures Big and Small debuts exclusively on Google Play, and will share this journey of a lifetime from a very different non human point of view.
I was able to view an advance screening of All Creatures Big and Small and was touched by it. While I know the Ark story, there's much to be imagined about the animals left off the arks approved list.
At the heart of this story is a Father and son duo who plan to get on the ark. What follows their humorous plans is a touching story of hope, friendship and a willingness to be more then what you were. Kids will enjoy meeting the characters and seeing how they have an adventure while trying to survive the flood. Parents will enjoy a refreshing telling of a popular childhood story.
While All Creatures Big and Small is based on a bible story, there's no preaching or scripture quoting. There's just a great storyline that will keep kids engaged and even teach them a few things about how animals evolved over time. You'll have to watch the film to see what I mean. It's pretty clever.
Featuring the voice talents of Martin Sheen and Amy Grant, and distributed by Entertainment One (eOne), All Creatures Big and Small is a family-friendly, feature-length adventure that reimagines the epic tale of Noah's Ark.
Just in time for the long holiday weekend, audiences in the U.S. can reserve a complimentary HD copy on Google Play, beginning June 24, 2015 and available until July 28, 2015. So go ahead and pre-order the movie for your library now.
