With the help of his grandmother, Mamie Norma, Ted will have to thwart the traps of O’Hare and his henchmen to bring Audrey the last living tree seed in the world.

KIRIKOU AND THE WITCH

From 6 years old

The tiny Kirikou is born in an African village on which the witch Karaba, surrounded by her formidable fetishes, has cast a terrible spell: the source is dried up, the villagers ransomed, the men are kidnapped and mysteriously disappear. Kirikou, straight out of his mother’s womb, wants to deliver the village from the evil hold of Karaba and discover the secret of his wickedness. Michel Ocelot struck hard in 1998 with this dynamic and exotic cartoon, putting in our head a song that has become cult: “Kirikou is not great, but he is brave!” by Youssou N’Dour.

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS

HAPPY FEET

From 6 years old

An Antarctic penguin will never get anywhere if he can’t sing! In Happy Feet, poor Mumble is without question the worst singer in the world. His talent is … tap dancing, which he practices as a virtuoso, with confounding ardor. Although his mother, Norma Jean, finds this gift “completely charming”, his father, Memphis, judges that “it really does not make penguin”. Both also know that their offspring will not find a soul mate until the day when they can push their “love song”. Chance does it right: Gloria, the one and only friend of our hero, is the best singer in the region. She and Mumble have always been friends, although this graceful creature still finds it difficult to accept its strange “anomaly”. Banished from the tribe, Mumble binds with the Amigos of Terre Adélie, an exuberant Latin group, led by Ramon … Directed by George Miller (yes, yes, the director of Mad Max Fury Road), this cartoon is extremely well done and stripping humor!

SHARK FEAST

TAll the ingredients for the adventure film are there: from the luscious pretty scientist to the James Bond villain, passing by the faithful companions that are the parrot and the dog, and the nice guide who brings his comic touch well to him. Several feature films have been a source of inspiration for the creation of Tad the explorer; we can cite The Mummy with Brendan Fraser, Lara Croft: Tomb raider with Angelina Jolie, the sagas Tintin and Indiana Jones, as well as’Allan Quatermain with Richard Chamberlain.
