From the studio that gave us How to Train Your Dragon’s adorable Toothless, Dreamworks is back again with yet another lovable mythical creature. This time, it’s Everest in the studio’s second collaborative effort with Pearl Studio, Abominable.

The film opens with a playful yeti breaking out from a building into a Chinese metropolis, finding refuge in a rooftop. Yi (Chloe Bennet) is a tough girl who has been working odd jobs to save money to take a trip across the country that she was planning to take with her recently-deceased father. She encounters the injured creature, heals its wound and name’s him Everest. 

Before you know it, childish Peng (Albert Tsai) and his smooth-talker cousin Jin (Tenzing Norway Trainor) join their neighbour Yi on a cross-country adventure to get Everest back to his family who reside in Mount Everest. Their adventure is not as smooth sailing as they get trailed by Eddie Izzard's villainous rare animal collector Burnish, and a Dr. Zara voiced by Sarah Paulson.

Abominable gets points for its idea and originality but unfortunately, it didn’t quite achieve what it set itself up to do. The film has heart but it still lacks the one ingredient that most Pixar films have. And maybe it wasn’t intended but this reviewer picked up at least 5 scenes in the film that may or may not have been a call out to a handful of Disney/Pixar films. 

Be that as it may, Abominable does have its magical moments. The beautiful landscape paired with Yi’s beautiful violin melody and Everest’s magical powers are the best parts of the film. The scenes that showcases these elements will take you on a journey of its own making, allowing you to forget you were sitting in a cinema for a few brief moments. And much like Toothless, Everest will steal your heart in no time.
