I LOVED THE MESSAGE!!!!!
I will spoil this movie in some parts because I'm getting my point/message out, so beware. When I watched the trailer for this movie I was like this would be a cute kid movie to watch and even though I'm a teen I'll give it a try. When I went to the theater with my family, we were all cracking up at the characters personalities and just funny cute humor. This movie had a bigger message in it though. It sounded a lot like the Christian religion. The Christian churches have all of these things like Christmas is on December 25th and you are celebrating "Jesus's" birth and on October 31st it's okay to dress up and go have fun because it's Halloween. But, they aren't okay and true. If you question and look into those things you find what really is true about them. That's what this movie is about. There is a village of Yetis and in this village is a Yeti named Migo. Migo (and almost all of the other Yetis) doesn't ever question the laws (the stone tablets) that he's always known to be true, because if you have questions then you just push them down and they'll go away. Migo one day sees a human (a "small foot") and goes to tell his village, even though he knows that small foots don't exist because the stone tablets say so. He doesn't want to lie and say he didn't see one so he is banished from his village and is off to find a small foot to prove the tablets wrong. He finds a small foot and brings him back into his village. He shows the village the small foot and they start to question if the other stone tablets are true or not. The Stone Keeper doesn't like that the others know the truth so he convinces Migo to lie and say that his small foot is a type of yak. In the end, Migo apologizes and tells everyone the truth that everything they know to be true is one giant lie so they would be safe from the small foots. When you believe what everyone tells you to be true, how can you know what is wrong? You just know it's wrong? Do you give in like the others? Or do you take a stand and test everything that you're told and do not compromise to the world? The message I received was to test everything you're told and do because it might not be true. Look into it.
