Teenager Yi, who lives in Shanghai, is surprised to discover that a Yeti has escaped captivity and found his way on to the roof of her apartment building. Moreover, he’s far from happy. After some initial posturing between the two, it’s not long before they form a bond and the furry stranger is named Everest by Yi and her friends Jin and Peng. Everest is on the run from zoologist Dr Zara (Sarah Paulson) and Burnish (Eddie Izzard), an old and very rich collector of species. So, the teens decide to help him on the dangerous and epic 2,000-mile journey to the Himalayas, where he can be reunited with his family. Along the way, they discover that Everest has a magical relationship with nature, which manifests itself in many wondrous and delightful ways. Written and directed by Jill Culton (Open Season), this collaboration between Dreamworks Animation Studios and Pearl Studio in China is a joyous and rewarding achievement. Boasting a compelling story and breathtaking visuals achieved by the latest animation technology, Abominable is as beautiful as it is funny and exciting.
