How to travel during containment?
Today is Wednesday is Children’s Day! So we thought of them for our confined journey of the day. And also a little to you: it will give you some ideas of occupation for this weekend which promises to be rainy, at least with us. I’m also sure that there are also big children among you, like us, cartoon fans.
So for our stopover of the day, let’s head for the couch for a responsible trip behind our TV screen!
As usual I have arranged them in alphabetical order.
Coco / Mexico
Miguel grew up in a family where music was forbidden, but he dreams of becoming a famous singer, just like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz. So he decides, in secret, to take part in a competition held in his hometown. By trying to steal a guitar from one of the graves in the cemetery on the night of the Feast of the Dead, he will find himself sent to the kingdom of the dead.
The Princess and the Frog / New Orleans – USA
Tania is passionate about cooking and dreams of opening a gourmet restaurant in New Orleans. She devotes all her time and energy to it. Until she met Prince Naveen, who had just been turned into a frog by a wizard. He manages to persuade her to give him a kiss to make him look human again. The result will not be as expected…
The Prince of Egypt / Egypt
In order to save her son from the persecution of the Hebrews by the Pharaohs, Moses’ mother puts him in a basket on the Nile in the hope that he will be adopted. This is done by the Pharaoh’s wife and mother of Ramses II, the future Pharaoh. They will therefore be raised as two brothers until Moses understands that he is Hebrew and decides to leave the palace to take refuge in the desert.
The Lion King / Tanzania
Simba, Mufasa’s son, has an extraordinary destiny because he will be led to follow in his father’s footsteps and become the king. However, Scar, Mufasa’s brother, who had hitherto been the heir to the throne, does not see this in the same light. He will therefore set up a stratagem to drive Simba into exile and seize power. In his adventure he will meet Timon and Pumbaa who will help him grow up and become his new family.
This is a series of 39 episodes about the discovery of America. It follows the adventures of a Spanish orphan, Esteban, who leaves Barcelona and embarks with the navigator Mendoza to discover the new world in the hope of finding his father who disappeared at sea. In his adventures he will meet Zia and Tao, his faithful friends.
Lilo and Stich / Hawaii
Lilo, a 6-year-old girl, is being raised by her older sister since the disappearance of her parents. Without her consent, she takes in Stich, whom she thinks is an abandoned dog. It turns out to be an alien creature, as destructive as it is intelligent, who has fled his planet. He manages to hide his true identity until these creators arrive on earth to find him and destroy him.
Madagascar / Madagascar
Marty, a zebra at the Central Park Zoo in New York, dreams of wide open spaces and wildlife. One night he decides to run away to make this dream come true. His friends Alex the lion, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippopotamus go looking for him and find him at the train station at the same time as the police. This is where the adventure will begin and lead them, without wanting to, to Madagascar.
Mulan / China
The Huns are invading China. To counter this attack the emperor decides that one man per family must join the imperial army. Mulan refuses to see his father, a former soldier and now elderly and ill, leave. In the night she cuts her hair, puts on her father’s armour and leaves for the base where her father was to be posted.
Ratatouille / France
Rémy is a rat who lives in the Parisian countryside and dreams of becoming a great chef. When he and his family are chased out of the house, where they lived, by the landlady and find themselves all separated, he decides to head for Paris to try to live his dream in the restaurant of his idol, the starred chef Auguste Gusteau.
Rio / Brazil
Blu is the last male of an endangered species of parrot. He can’t fly, but that’s no problem in his cage at Linda’s house. This will change when he has to leave for Rio to meet Perla, the last female of the species who dreams of great adventures. He will end up literally taking flight to escape from poachers.
