What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Missing Link is an animated family comedy about a trio of adventurers who go on a journey to find Bigfoot's long lost relatives. Mr. Link (voiced by Zach Galifianakis) is an 8-foot-tall creature living in the Pacific Northwest who's discovered by (or recruits) Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman), a fearless explorer. Frost is thrilled to discover the "missing link" between humans and animals and decides to help Mr. Link reconnect with his cousins in the snowy mountains of Shangri-La. They're joined by a guide, Adeline Fortnight (Zoe Saldana); together the three of them traverse the globe on an exciting adventure. Timothy Olyphant, Emma Thompson, and Stephen Fry also join the voice cast. This comedy from the animators of Kubo and the Two Strings and The Boxtrolls looks like it will be a fine pick for families with big kids and tweens, but expect some rude humor and peril.
