Sammy's Great Escape - A Turtley brilliant movie!

The last time we went to the pictures we had the usual bombardment of trailers - you know, those that go on so long you've actually finished your popcorn before the movie even starts...

One such trailer totally caught Ruby's imagination and she's been banging on about it ever since and badgering me to go and see it.

Well, I'm pleased to say that 'Sammy's Great Escape' is scheduled for release on 15th February and I'm pretty sure I know what we'll be doing that weekend.

Sammy and Ray, leatherback turtles and friends forever, are enjoying an atoll’s water and sand, shepherding new hatchlings Ricky and Ella out to sea. Suddenly, a poacher swoops in and ships them off to be part of a spectacular aquarium show for tourists in Dubai. The kingpin of the place, Big D the seahorse, enlists them in his plans for a great escape. But with their new friends Jimbo the bug-eyed blob fish, Lulu the snippy lobster and a whole family of penguins, Sammy and Ray hatch breakout plans of their own. That is when little Ricky and Ella arrive, determined to break in to rescue them. After a series of thrilling adventures and narrow escapes, our heroes head south to meet up with Shelly, Sammy’s first and only love.

It's the follow up to A Turtle's Tale which we haven't actually seen yet - guess I'll have to get that on DVD!  But still, she's adamant that it's THE film to see.

We've recently been watching The Reef, another Warner Bros underwater animated adventure, so maybe that's what's sparked her interest?

Do your kid's enjoy going to the cinema?  What films are you looking forward to this coming half term?


  1. My DS (age 4) also enjoyed The Reef, when a friend gave us their copy on DVD. I took both DS and DD (age 2) to see The Polar Express at the cinema after xmas, and they were gripped! I'll look out for Sammy's Great Escape, although if DD has her way, we may be watching Tinkerbell instead :)

  2. Hi ThreeCounties Mum! We were gripped with the Polar Express this year too. We even saw it at ThomasLand in 4D (think cold water and snow coming at you!)

    Oh and I think Tinkerbell is also a must too :0)
