Being the mother of two boys , the words race, racing and speed are very common at my house, you know with boys is everything about speed, they race with spoons, food, anything you can think of, so I couldn’t be more excited when I heard about the upcoming movie TURBO from DreamWorks Animation.
Turbo is about a little snail who dreams of racing, his dream is to race cars, how cute is the story! And the best part is that his dream comes true when he accidentally is gifted with super speed and becomes “Turbo-Charged.”
During “The Croods” Parents Blogger Summit at the DreamWorks studio, I had the chance to watch two clips of the film and let me tell you, amazing animation, awesome story with a great message, your kids will love it, I know mine will!
The director and screenwriter of Turbo, David Soren a father himself, when introducing the clips, told us he got the idea for the movie from his son, who loves cars and snails, he also described the film as a mix of racing cars ad superheroes , the perfect mix to be a hit with my boys.
Any kid will identify himself with Turbo from the beginning of the movie, where we see the snail who is voiced by Ryan Reynolds watching an auto race on TV and imagining himself racing along with them, something I’ve seen my boys do many times.
Things get very interesting when ,“Thanks” to an accident Turbo is exposed to a chemical that changes him forever.
In this clip we also meet his brother Chet voiced by Paul Giamatti, who is the conservative and precautious one and thinks his brother’s dream is the craziest thing in the whole world.
I loved this first clip because it teaches children about the importance of being perseverant and to follow your dreams as impossible they might seem.
In the second clip, Turbo is introduced to a group of racing snails and Turbo discovers his new talent, his special super speed power and things start to get very interesting and entertaining.
3 reasons Why I love Turbo?
- The story has a great message, No dream is impossible. If you really want something it will come true.
- DreamWorks Animation, did it again because the 3D Animation it’s out of this world.
- Amazing cast, not only I love Ryan Reynolds for things that have nothing to do with his voice, but Paul Giamatti it’s a great actor and the film includes other big names like Maya Rudolph, Luis Guzman, Samuel L. Jackson, even Snoop Dogg and Ken Jeong, who is the voice of a woman, how hilarious is that!
Turbo will be on the start line on theaters July 2013.
