ThumbelinaDirector: Don Bluth, Gary Goldman
The voices of Carol Channing, John Hurt, Jodi Benson and Gilbert Gottfried help bring this wonderful Hans Christian Andersen story to life. Barry Manilow contributed heavily to the film's music. Children still seem to enjoy this story about a young girl who was the size of a human thumb. She was kidnapped by a toad, just when she hoped to continue her life with Cornelius the Fairy Prince. This is a good "family film" with few, if any, parts that might be considered questionable for children. Kids are likely to enjoy how Gilbert Gottfried does the voice of a strange beetle and how Carol Channing breathes life into Ms. Fieldmouse.

i loved this movie when i was a kid and i still enjoy it now. the heartmoving the love story, and the whole storyline.
Don Bluth does it again in this wonderful classic tale. It's exciting, romantic, and enjoyable for the whole family. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars were that there were only about 2 really good songs, while the others were only okay or kind of bad ("Marry the Mole"). I've already watched it several times since I bought it! Note: For those who think it's Disney, it's not. It's called 20th Century Fox.
This movie was my absolute favorite when i was younger and i still love it . i always catch myself singing the songs to myself. great for all ages i recommend it to everyone
I think it's a great movie 4 all ages i love the all the songs in this movie!!!! I'am 16yrs old and i still enjoy this movie.
This has always been my favorite movie to watch as a little girl, and to this day I still enjoy watching it just as much as I did back in the 90's. The storyline is wonderful and the songs are brilliant. Thumbelina will forever be my favorite movie. I recommend this movie for children of all ages, and I'm sure many adults would love it too. Classic love story originally written by Hans Christian Andersen.
I love this movie. It's the cutest love story. I love the songs, especially 'let me be your wings.'
This movie was great for all of the kids, is is the most adorable Disney movie ever!
I've always enjoyed Don Bluth's films. These days, animation is dying out and alot of kids and adults are being subjected to horrific animation on television. People are not getting the quality they deserve,animation-wise, and more importantly, story-wise. Don Bluth has always captured the imagination with his depictive artistry and has drawn life into the characters. Thumbelina is just one out of the collective of wonderful Don Bluth films. The story of a young woman who discovers the meaning of the heart and finding out who she is as a person. I would recommend this film to anyone, whether your a kid, teenager, or adult.
