Synopsis

A magical Yeti must return to his family.

Dove Review

Dove Review:

After Yi (Chloe Bennet) loses her dad, all of life’s magic seems gone, but once she discovers a young, magical Yeti, Everest (Joseph Izzo), on her apartment rooftop, a new adventure begins.

Burnish (Eddie Izzard) and Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) try to recapture the Yeti for a science exhibition that would make them famous, but thanks to Yi and her friends Peng (Albert Tsai) and Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor), the Yeti has a chance to return to his home, Mount Everest.

The mad scientists chase Everest and Yi and her friends all across China. But Everest’s special ability to manipulate nature and Yi’s newfound magic through her violin give the audience hope that the Yeti will return to safety.

Though Abominable alludes to several Chinese religious elements, the value of family and friends wins this animated adventure a Dove-Approved seal for All Ages.

The Dove Take:

Abominable offers an animated magical adventure across China that the whole family can enjoy.
