This retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen classic fairy tale has the digit-sized heroine evading the clutches of various toads, moles, and beetles before she can proceed with her courtship with her dream lover, Prince Cornelius.
This time, while building a hideaway in their new home of the Great Valley, Littlefoot and the gang rescue a mysterious egg from two scheming egg-nappers and make a starling surprise - and new friend - when the egg hatches.

This is a movie best suited for the wee ones, and most adults will nod off, fast. I know. I did. Luckily, sort of, my daughters wanted to see it, again. And I made a serious attempt to remain awake.
The animation will not give the Disney folks a reason to worry, as the cartoon elements look very early 70's Saturday morning cartoon style. The computer animation is decent, and it's a shame that the movie didn't go either way, as the two styles seem to look mismatched, or like two different groups were doing the movie and it was tossed together.
My suggestion to those of you who want to get it for the kids, look for it at the local library, or use your "rent one, and get one free" coupon and rent something for YOU, and make the free movie "Faeries".
The "Under Eight Set" will like it, but be sure you are in a comfy chair, or have a good book handy if you are in the same room this is being watched in.
