    I feel that this movie may become another "lost" Lucasfilm movie, like Twice Upon Time. ILM did an excellent job on this film, and it's a shame that it wasn't released on Blu-Ray.

    The film itself, like so many Lucasfilm projects, spent so many years in development, and it just had the misfortune of being released during a company transition. It's by no means a perfect film, but you can tell Lucas cared about it; it has his touch and the magic of Lucasfilm's ILM and Skywalker Sound.

    Did not know that this movie existed till now. I am currently watching some of it and man, is it incredibly funny. A lot of dry and visual humor within the film.

    I caught this on Disney Channel back in April when they aired it and loved it. I bought the DVD off Amazon right away. It seems it got a big push in sales and popularity when it aired on Disney, as it was in the top 100 movies on Amazon and Walmart.com. It's such a fun movie. Beautiful animation, great voice acting and singing, a familiar story with an unexpected ending... It's a shame the movie wasn't a big hit, as this would be a great franchise to explore. If Disney promoted it better I feel it could've did great numbers. I seriously think this has the best animation in any animated movie I've seen, topping Moana, which I thought looked gorgeous. Such detail in the environments and characters, it's such an eye-catching movie.

    I watch this almost every day since I saw it a few weeks ago on Disney. Money very well spent on the DVD. Shame there's no Blu-ray release...

    Yeah, I'm aware, but I prefer watching physical media, and I have the DVD, so...

    As do I, almost exclusively. But this one never made it to Blu-ray, even though Space Buddies and Tinker Bell and the Legend of NeverBeast did. Because, ya know, Disney...

    So I haven't seen it since theaters.
