The second installment in this live-action trilogy maintains the charm and warmth of the first movie, and continues to do the original story by Cecile Aubry justice. Spectacular landscapes -- the camera capturing the beauty of the French Alps at every given opportunity -- and heartfelt performances in Belle & Sebastian: The Adventure Continues bring the iconic characters to life for a new generation. Bossuet, in particular, is excellent as Sebastian, showing great courage in the face of danger, while also a sympathetic side as he learns that families come in all shapes and sizes.

The traditional feel and innocent core are reminiscent of a Disney film. The music, landscape, and numerous animals create a magical feel, while the scenes of danger and the backdrop of the aftermath of World War II maintain a more somber realism. Parents looking for an exciting family adventure with positive messages and role models will love this well-rounded movie that's full of spirit and heart.
