What’s it about? is a large delivery company run by storks. It used to deliver babies all around the world but decided it was easier to deliver parcels instead. Junior is a young stork trying to work his way up in his job but he needs to get rid of the company’s only human employee, an orphan girl called Tully.

One day Tully accidentally turns on the old baby-making machine and creates the first baby the company has made in ages. Junior decides it would be best if they quickly deliver this baby before their boss finds out. They set out on a long adventure, which sees them become good friends while having to overcome lots of dangers.

What to look out for

There is some slapstick violence in this movie such as:

  • Junior keeps flying into plate glass windows.
  • Hunter, the boss, likes to use cute little birds to play with. He hurts them but they get their own back.
  • Tulip makes the baby laugh by continually hitting Junior over the head with a stick. 

There are also some scenes, which could scare younger kids such as:

  • Planes fall out of the sky and there are crashes and explosions, which cause buildings to collapse.
  • Junior, Tulip and the baby are chased by a pack of wolves that want to eat them. They have glowing eyes and howl and screech.
  • Hunter tries to destroy the baby-making factory by driving a huge robotic vehicle through the babies.

Moral of the Story

The message of the story is the importance of family and friendship,
