Cinedigm will be releasing the movie on Google Play on January 12th, but we had the option of viewing it in advance and both myself and my youngest son agree that this is a must-see movie for the family.
Bunyan & Babe will be available for free on Google Play from January 12th until February 16th. It will also be playing in twelve theater markets including New York and Los Angeles on February 3rd.
What We Loved About Bunyan & Babe
My youngest son decided he wanted to be a night owl and since I am still recovering from vacation brain, I thought it was the perfect time for us to have some me and him time and watch Bunyan & Babe while enjoying popcorn. The movie is over a little over an hour long, but it kept both of us hooked the entire time.
If you are like me, you probably remember Paul Bunyan & Babe the Blue Ox from when you were a child. This movie was the perfect opportunity for me to reflect on my childhood while also introducing my son to something from my youth.
The movie starts with Travis and Whitney going to visit their grandparents for the summer. Then, Travis witnesses something that he shouldn’t and winds up at Paul Bunyan and Babe’s place. Once back home, with Bunyan & Babe by his side, he stumbles into a greedy real estate developers evil plan and the story really unfolds from there. This was also a learning experience for Travis because he learns that you don’t have to be big to do big things.
Closing Thoughts on Bunyan & Babe
Usually, my youngest son (age 4) is more into movies that have a ton of singing in them as he is obsessed with music. However, this is not the case with Bunyan & Babe. Despite there not being a ton of music in the movie, he stayed awake the whole time and was quiet too as it had him drawn in. I must admit it was rather interesting for me because this is the first Paul Bunyan & Babe the Ox animation that I have seen. Therefore, I would say this is the perfect movie for the entire family.
