Way better than anticipated
3 September 2019 | by joe-13182See all my reviews

So well done. I thought it was going to be a full CG over production of a classic, I was so wrong. Some younger viewers might be off put by the earlier puppetry style characters growing up in this computer generation age, but not this guy! The characters were true to the original, yet used modern technology to enhance the background and scenery. I think this production was created by people who are true fans of the original motion picture. In my opinion Mr. Henson would be extremely proud.
