SSB promises that this is the last time that I shall post about this film.... but check out the below reviews, including Roger Ebert's calling it one of the year's best films....

It is a beautiful, exciting, enthralling, film ... and SSB is psyched to see that it is reappearing now in many theaters. Going to probably take a couple of my rascals to see it this weekend, which will be SSB's fourth time. (Can you tell that I like this film, yet??? ) :) :) :)

Saw it with my DD (8), and she totally understood, and greatly enjoyed it...

One neat thing, is that the main character is a very brave young girl, who experiences some fantastic adventures.

Could honestly same my favorite animated film of all time...
