My Thoughts:

We loved A Turtle's Tale, so were excited to hear that another movie in this popular animated series which released for the first time on Blu-ray/DVD/3D Combo Pack on July 9t.  We ended up watching this movie over the weekend, and had a blast!   They love sea creatures, and Sammy the turtle is so cute. :-)  
What I love most about the "A Turtle's Tale" line of movies is how it teaches young children not only about the different sea creatures, but also teaches them that they have to protect the world around us, in order to keep animals like these sea creatures alive and thriving.  In addition to teaching about caring for sea life, this film, like the first, also relays lessons about teamwork and the need to support one another, as well as perseverance.  Many young children will compare this movie to Finding Nemo, but they are different.  This film is geared more towards the younger audience, as the storyline is easier to understand, and the length of the movie is more manageable for little ones to sit through.  
Overall, I have to say that this new release really kept the girls engaged, and was a great film to enjoy family time together.  Savannah had a blast pointing out the different colored fish, and loved the sea horse.  But, Sammy will always be her favorite. :-)
So, if you are looking for cute family film to enjoy with little ones, why not consider picking up this recent Blu-ray/DVD/3D Combo Pack release,  or the original "A Turtle's Tale" to view with your family?  You will not be disappointed with either family-friendly film.  :-)
