Have you ever felt 8 foot tall? Like you were the one that everyone noticed, but didn’t? And in hindsight, you realized that the onlookers weren’t all that much fun
Laika’s latest family film, The Missing Link, focuses on characters
Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman), Mr. Link (Zach Galifianakis), and Adelina Fortnight (Zoe Saldana). Throughout the movie you’ll come to know their personalities and maybe even see yourself in some parts of them. They tackle commitment, family, friendship, honesty, respect, exploration and more.
There are life skills that can be interpreted and would make for a great conversation amongst families after viewing. Our children are interpreting real-life situations on the silver screen. I always encourage you to talk about what they are viewing with your child. See the world through their eyes, it’s fascinating just as the spirit of Mr. Link!
This April, meet Mr. Link: 8 feet tall, 630 lbs, and covered in fur, but don’t let his appearance fool you… he is funny, sweet, and adorably literal, making him the world’s most lovable legend at the heart of Missing Link, the globe-trotting family adventure from LAIKA. Tired of living a solitary life in the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Link recruits fearless explorer Sir Lionel Frost to guide him on a journey to find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, our fearless trio of explorers encounter more than their fair share of peril as they travel to the far reaches of the world to help their new friend. Through it all, the three learn that sometimes you can find a family in the places you least expect.
