G, with the suggestion that some scenes may scare young children
Madman Entertainment for providing a copy of Oblivion Island for the purpose of this review.
- A simple, all-ages friendly experience that offers a pleasant storyline from start to finish.
- Nice anime-style, 3D visuals with no major noticeable flaws.
- A solid English voice cast, with highlights including Cassandra Lee (Kyuubey - Puella Magi Madoka Magica) as Teo and Patrick Seitz (Laxus - Fairy Tail) as the Baron.
- As with most major anime films, a tonne of extra content!
- It is just that, a simple, all-ages friendly experience that unfortunately does not stand out from the latest films by Studio Ghibli. Could have stood to be a bit more ambitious.
- Only available on DVD in Australia, while North America has it on both DVD and Blu-ray.
