Scariness A Problem, Great Story & Message Though
The animation was a little scary when I first watched it as a kid. The graphics are simple but very detailed like a Arthur Rickman illustration. So when there is a closeup of characters whether good guy or bad guy, it makes for a sometimes chilling and frightening watch for kids. Overall though after I watched it as an adult, the story has some positive messages for kids about picking science over magic, using magic as a motivator for our hopes, dreams, and work, and whether the main villian is any indication of the society we live in and people we have become.
