Enjoy a BIG adventure this summer with the TINIEST of creatures in Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants!

The girls and I saw the most amazing movie today, Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants, which arrived on DVD this past Tuesday (May 26th) from kaboom!Entertainment, in addition to releasing in theaters and on Demand.  This fun fill adventure that centers around ants has no dialogue, except for the voice of Richard Dreyfuss, who acts as the narrator.  The ants themselves communicate and tell the story via a synchronized soundtrack of music and sound effects -- which I have to say is really cool. Little ones especially with love how this animated movie is told through sound as they will not have to concentrate to follow along with dialogue.

In addition to the unique communication of the animated stars, the imagery and scenery that make up this animated movie are simply stunning.  Who knew that an animated movie could makes insects look really cool.  Want to see what I am talking about?  Check out the movie's trailer and see what I mean...

And, here is more about the movie:


"After a couple leaves their picnic in a hurry, a gang of hungry ants moves in to steal what could be their most coveted treasure: a tin box filled with sugar cubes.  But before they can get away with the loot, a newly-born ladybug strays from its own family and gets trapped inside the box!  The ladybug is soon spirited away by the ants as they try to transport their prize across the woods toward their colony. Together, the insects embark on an epic journey to protect their sugar."

Like I said earlier, my girls and I loved this movie and will definitely be watching it again soon. Savannah even wants to bring it to school and have the teacher show it next week during bug week.  Once you and your kids watch this adorable, you'll want to watch it again and/or pass along to family and friends to enjoy.  When they say "good things come in small packages," I am not sure they were referencing ants.  But, with this new animated feature release, these insects will warm your heart and keep you entertained from beginning to end.  I highly recommend this movie is you are looking for fun family-friendly movie to watch this upcoming weekend.
