If your kids are dreaming of snowball fights and building snow forts, they will surely enjoy the new animated movie SNOWTIME! from Shout!Factory Films, which is now playing at select theaters. SNOWTIME! follows the kids in a small village, as they try to keep themselves entertained over the winter break. The kids divide themselves into opposing teams with Luke and Sophie as team leaders, and the team that occupies the village snow fort at the end of winter break wins the snow fight. SNOWTIME! is about more than just a snow fight, as the kids learns valuable life lessons along the way, and the movie features the importance of friendship, teamwork and unity.
Here in South Florida our kids keep asking about snow, and our little one thinks it will snow as soon as the temperatures dip below 70F. “Snow Mommy, Snow pleeeeease,” she says, and she does not believe me, when I tell her that it doesn’t snow in South Florida. The closest our kids have come to snow here in South Florida have been hail and fake snow at the skating rink, so the movie SNOWTIME! was the perfect show to watch on a cool winter day.
SNOWTIME! is directed by Jean-Francois Pouliot, co-drected by Francois Brisson and directed by Marie-Claude Beauchamp. It is based on the film classic La Guerre des Tuques (The Dog Who Stopped the War), and it is a great way to showcase how a little competition can teach kids a lot about life and friendship.
