Enjoy a BIG adventure this spring with the TINIEST of creatures in Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants! Giveaway Opportunity!


Good things come in small packages! That’s certainly the case with the adorable, animated feature Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants.  These endearing insects will be in theaters, On Demand, and on DVD May 26, 2015 from kaboom! Entertainment.


This epic adventure has the added twist of almost no dialogue – think Wall-E meets A Bug’s Life! These animated stars communicate solely via a synchronized soundtrack featuring music and sound effects to tell the tale of their journey. With the lone voice of Richard Dreyfuss as the narrator, Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants is the buzz worthy spring feature you won’t want to miss.

Younger children are sure to love this one! I would recommend for children ages 4-8.  As stated above, there is little dialogue and younger children are more likely to enjoy the sound effects and music. Also, a fun one to watch with the family!
