Who’s Smallfoot?

The main character of the animated movie, Migo (Channing Tatum’s voice) is a Yeti scientist, who is convinced that the creature called “Smallfoot” exists in the real world and is not just a legend. The movie begins with him facing a former TV personality named Percy Patterson (James Corden’s character) who is actually human or Smallfoot.

Other yetis are the members of the Smallfoot Evidentiary Society (S.E.S.).

“Zendaya Is Meechee”

Zendaya plays a character called Meechee, the daughter of the StoneKeeper. Gabriel Gundacker, from Vine, manages to fit in not only Zendaya character’s name – Meechee, but Lebron James as Gwangi all in the same song.

And it sounds so catchy!

Zendaya really loved the song and commented on Twitter, saying: “Sang my name right and everything.”

The song went on Twitter with up to 4.8 million views!  He even released an extended version of it on SoundCloud.

What do critics think?

On review website Rotten Tomatoes, the movie holds an approval rating of 74% based on 23 reviews (including 17 positive reviews) with an average rating of 6.3/10.

“Smallfoot” follows a familiar path, it’s what it does with the journey that makes it worth watching,” says Katie Walsh for Tribune News Service.

“Though not an animated technological marvel, it is a humorous delight for all ages with a great message that encourages thought and challenging the status quo,” reads the review of Yolanda Machado for SassyMamaInLA.

However, some critics left negative reviews:

“Heady ideas for a mainstream cartoon, but unfortunately Smallfoot can’t bear the weight of its big notions, saddled as it is with fairly mediocre animation, mostly forgettable songs and a resolutely by-the-numbers screenplay,” says Alonso Duralde for TheWrap.
