“Thumbelina” (1993): Thoughts

Posted in Childrens, Movie at 12:34 am by Rosepixie

This movie stuck surprisingly close to the original story given that it began with Thumbelina as a young woman living in a community of tiny people. She spent the movie trying to carry out a mission that she was constantly derailed from by being kidnapped for various purposes. I was pleased that she actually had a mission and that the prince married her for her bravery and heroic acts, not because she was beautiful. In fact, beauty really didn’t factor in heavily to most of the situations she ended up in. It was a refreshing change to the story!
