This spectacular family-friendly feature from Hollywood’s DreamWorks Animation and China’s Pearl Studio takes us on a wild adventure from bustling modern city to gorgeous countryside to mystical mountaintops, all in an effort to help a charismatic creature evade his captors and find his way home.
Having fled the secret laboratory where he’s been detained, a young Yeti frantically scurries through the streets of Shanghai before hiding on an apartment rooftop, where he takes solace in a billboard advertisement for travel to Everest. It’s also where he meets Yi (Chloe Bennet), a resourceful girl struggling through adolescence while nursing a profound personal loss. Yi and the Yeti discover a shared fondness for Yi’s grandma’s dumplings — which the Yeti consumes in crazy quantities — and a love of music. An outspoken advocate for Asian actors and film roles in Hollywood, Bennet voices Yi with an impressive mix of American confidence and Chinese family values.
Yi quickly surmises that her new companion is being hunted by a squad of ruthless militiamen, led by wealthy collector Burnish and the zoologist Dr. Zara. Recruiting two cousins as accomplices, Yi determines to help the Yeti get away. With their pursuers hot on their tails, the quartet hop on a barge bound for the Himalayas, where the Yeti can be reunited with his family.
Written by Jill Culton (Monsters, Inc.) and co-directed by Culton and Todd Wilderman, Abominable recalls such beloved family adventure classics as E.T. Featuring the voices of Eddie Izzard and Golden Globe winner Sarah Paulson, the film brims with humour, derring-do, and surprising twists, leading us on a journey of friendship, healing, and love.
