Babar the Classic Series: Best Friends Forever
Reviewed by Makai Weber Colvin

Hi. I’m Makai Weber Colvin for KIDS FIRST! and I’m reviewing the movie Babar. This movie is about an elephant king named Babar. The movie follows Babar as he tells his kids stories about his own childhood.MakaiColvin_180x250.jpg

Each story is told as a chapter and teaches a lesson, for example showing the children how to learn from their mistakes. My favorite scene in the movie is when the old lady, Madame, teaches Babar how to get along in the big city.

The animation is simple and pleasant. I call it “old school” because the style reminds me of an older cartoon style, like it is drawn by hand and not a computer.  The voices in Babar are so friendly, I feel like I am chatting with my own friends.

I think all ages can enjoy this movie, although older teens and tweens might get bored with the chapters and lessons. I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars.
