Wonder Park (PG) Family Movie Review and DVD Giveaway (Sent by Paramount)

Wonder Park is a sweet feel-good family movie which has a couple of slightly more serious moments. Paramount Home Media Distribution sent us a copy to review, as well as some Wonder Park goodies, and we all really enjoyed it! Out today on Download & Keep, and on Blu-ray and DVD from 19th August, it's a great film to fill a rainy Summer afternoon.

Wonder Park has a great cast including Jennifer Garner, Mila Kunis and Ken Jeong, and centres on a young girl named June, who has created an amazing amusement park with her mother. They imagine and draw all of the rides and attractions, fill the park with animal characters who have fun all day, and it's a very happy place to be.

When June's Mum becomes ill, June loses her happiness, and she turns her back on the Wonder Park. Unknown to her, it can't function without her and it quickly falls into disrepair, and is overtaken by Chimpanzombies. When she returns she finds it broken and the characters desperately unhappy. June feels the weight of responsibility and realises it's up to her to cheer the whole park up in time to save it, and in the process, she also finds her own joy...


The characters in Wonder Park are incredibly likeable and very sweet. Boomer the giant blue bear (Park Greeter), Greta the Boar (although I claim she's a warthog) and Steve the Porcupine were favourites with all of us. One of the other park residents, Peanut the Chimpanzee, has a starring role in their battle to defeat the Chimpanzombies and restore them back as Wonder Chimps.

Here's a little look at the movie animation and how easy it is for you or your child to have a go at drawing one of the Wonder Chimps yourself...


Wonder Park hasn't really got any peril, but it has a deeper message than just rustproofing your roller-coaster. It is generally suitable for anyone and your young school-aged child will get most from it, but there is enough to keep an adult interested. It will also be a familiar situation for any child who has experienced having a sick parent - and hopefully they'll realise it's actually okay and normal to be frustrated and feel 'hard done to' sometimes.

Wonder Park is available now to Download & Keep, and on Blu-ray and DVD 19th August from Paramount Home Media Distribution.
