The WONDER PARK movie review is here. Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Movies, with Ilion Animation Studios handling animation, produce the 3D computer animated adventure. Released in USA and India today, Let’s see what the movie has in store for the kids and adults in WONDER PARK movie review.

The Story of WONDER PARK
Wonder Park tells the story of a magnificent amusement park where the imagination of a creative 8-year-old June (Brianna Denski) comes alive. One magical day, June is running through the woods to find her way home where she discovers an old rollercoaster car and climbs inside. She suddenly finds herself in Wonderland, an amusement park she had created in her mind and put aside. All of her rides and characters are brought to life but are falling into disarray without her. Now, with the help of her fun and lovable park characters, June will have to put the wonder back in Wonderland before it is lost forever.

Good points
Top class animation. Vibrant, colorful, the spectacular fantasy amusement park is a delight for small kids - train tracks shaped like a giant octopus, the Sky Flinger, the animal mascots - Ken Hudson Campbell as Boomer the goofy bear, John Oliver as Steve the irrationally cultured porcupine, Mila Kunis as Greta the warthog, Norbert Leo Butz as Peanut the chimp. The world is ideal for a kid to have a ‘ride’.

Bad points
It’s all visual dazzle and the heart is somewhat missing. Predictable to the hilt, where you can predict every scene and why the word “Wonder Park” is never said in the movie - glaring isolation. The movie tries so hard to be cool in the story telling department, oh what an idea, look at the creativity, isn’t it wow?!, it can’t be unless you have a story like THE LION KING or COCO to say. Genuine wow factor is so less.

Final words
WONDER PARK had a great premise a cute 8 year imaginative kid the world she constructs and those mascots but then it lacks the charm, novelty and wonder moments. The best part - this could be the starting point an offer to Pixar Disney to get the park in their hands.

Rating 2.5/5
