About: Wonder Park tells the story of a magnificent amusement park where the imagination of a wildly creative girl named June comes alive.
The animation and story is sound. It certain kept the two little ones I was with entertained.it makes very clear distinctions between the real world and the world of Wonder Land.
The characters are lovable and funny enough for both child and adult to engage with.
There’s a very clear STEM (or STEAM as its called now) focus and I could certainly see how empowering it could be for young girls.
It takes a while to get into. For a film that’s premise is focused on the theme park, it certainly doesn’t feel like much screen time is spent there. Instead, it choses to focus more on the relationships out in the real world. It makes sense; the one impacts the other. However, it does impact how much I enjoyed the film.
It’s a little on the dark side for my liking. While I can only applaude the film’s attempt to address illness, depression and grief it was not the light hearted romp I was expecting for an Easter treat.
