This review of the movie contains the following information:
Yi (voice of Chloe Bennett) and her father had always planned to travel around China together so when he unexpectedly dies Yi busies herself by working every job she can to save money and take that trip to honour her father’s memory. She is too busy to grieve and too busy for her mother (voice of Michelle Wong) and grandmother (voice of Tsai Chin) who worry for her. Meanwhile, Mr Burnish (Eddie Izzard) of Burnish Industries has spent a lifetime trying to prove the existence of the illusive Himalayan Yeti. Burnish and his employees, headed by the evil Dr. Zara (voice of Sarah Paulson), find a Yeti but it escapes days before the public reveal. Yi discovers the injured Yeti hiding on her rooftop and soon realises he is in trouble. Naming him “Everest” and vowing to help him find his way home, Yi sets off with her reluctant cousins Peng (voice of Albert Tsai) and Jin (voice of Tenzing Norgay Trainor) on an epic journey across China to help Everest (voice of Joseph Izzo) find his family. Along the way they all learn some powerful lessons about love and life and the incredible difference just one person can make.
Children and adolescents may react adversely at different ages to themes of crime, suicide, drug and alcohol dependence, death, serious illness, family breakdown, death or separation from a parent, animal distress or cruelty to animals, children as victims, natural disasters and racism. Occasionally reviews may also signal themes that some parents may simply wish to know about.
Death of a parent, family alienation by failure to deal with grief, cruelty to endangered species and animal distress.
Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
