Storyline

Physicist Simon Weir invents a portal that can in theory take people to unimaginably distant locations millions of light years away. He tests the portal and never returns. Everyone believe he's dead and the portal is forgotten. His son Jac however does not believe this. When he's 14, he finds his father's portal and decides to go after his dad. He emerges on a strange alien planet of giants, who follow a code of honor similar to Earth's medieval chivalry. Jac meets some friendly locals and finds out that his father is still alive, but imprisoned. The aliens make no distinction between technology and magic, so Jac plans to use this to rescue his dad. What he doesn't realize is that stakes are much hire than that.

I enjoyed and recommended the movie
3 June 2004 | by kamc@earthlink.netSee all my reviews

I saw the focus group screen test in Hollywood on April 4, together with over 300 kids and their parents. The Moebius's design look great and I like the story. The kids love the animation, the landscape and the characters design are out of this world. The audience is very enthusiastic and they all applauded at the end of film!!

I stayed behind with the focus group, to listen to what they like and don't like about the movie and the kids really love it. The focus group describe the color is so vibrant and the ANIMATION - which was almost universally described as "revolutionary," "unlike anything they've ever seen", "feels 3-D", "seemed real in places", "puffed out" The action of the battle scenes, fighting and chase scenes fully impressed them. The movie carry a positive massage of family unity and payback for the bad guy.

The audience that i chat with really like it and they said they will highly recommend to other as well.

I think the movie will become a classic for CG animation and I applauded the people who bring this on the big screen for us.
