DreamWorks Animation and Pearl Studio's co-production Abominable takes audiences on an epic 2,000-mile adventure from the streets of Shanghai to the breathtaking Himalayan snowscapes. When teenage Yi (Chloe Bennet, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai), name him "Everest" and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish (Eddie Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) to help Everest get home.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Abominable is a heartwarming animated adventure about Yi (voiced by Chloe Bennet), an introverted Shanghai teen who discovers a yeti on the roof of her apartment building and embarks on a journey with two friends to return him home to Mount Everest. Expect peril and a few frightening encounters, some of which involve big chases, dart guns and drones, and close calls while climbing mountains. In one scene, it looks like a character has fallen to their death; in another, two people are swept off the mountain. Everest is chained and locked up (kids are also captured) and shot multiple times with tranquilizer guns. Characters discuss grief over the death of a parent and the loneliness of feeling like your family is no longer complete. There are also clear messages about teamwork, honor, defending and protecting your friends, and recognizing the value of life, and the film offers a positive representation of Chinese characters and culture.
