“A fun-filled family animation for boys and girls, CLEO features an all-star voice cast including Ross Lynch (Disney Channel’s Austin and Ally) and Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) as well as the worldwide debut of ‘Hymn’, a brand new song from international superstar Celine Dion.
This entertaining and heart-warming animation introduces eleven-year old Luke and Sophie who, aided by Cleo the dog, rally the children of the town in a snowball fight to claim the rights to their precious fort. With a big dollop of heart and humour, together they embark on an adventure that brings the whole town together and shows that you can find friendship in the most surprising circumstances.”
I have to admit, I hadn’t heard about Cleo until I was asked if Monkey and Mouse wanted to have a watch to tell you all about it, however I know that Monkey and Mouse love a chill out afternoon with a film, so we were happy to take a look.
I chose a day when they had been at the grandparents all day, they got back full of fresh air and low on energy, so they snuggled up on the sofa together and had a watch.
As soon as it started the kids were hooked; they watched the whole thing without moving and I heard lots of giggling and saw lots of smiles! Monkey loves dogs and he was really pleased to watch something where the Dog was a main character and they both loved the story!
From my point of view – the animation was fab, the film was fun and it kept the children enthralled throughout (meaning I got some time to do some chores!). It is a cute, well written, happy film and it features recognisable voices. So, If you fancy a fun-filled film to watch with the little ones – this is one for you!
