Are you looking for a new movie to see with your kids or grandchildren? There’s a new animated film coming out that you’re bound to love!
Based on a short story written by Canadian director and producer Bruce Stacey (who also wrote “God Rocks!” and “Journey to Christmas,”) “Ice Dragon: Legend of the Blue Daisies” is an allegorical faith-based movie that is sure to please the entire family.
Here’s a sneak peak of the story:
“Melody, a gifted young dreamer and her feisty friend Leif, must set aside their differences and use the power of magical Blue Daisies and an ancient Song to save their world from an evil Ice Dragon. When the blue flowers that once bloomed all around her village begin to disappear, Melody and her eccentric grandfather recognize this as a sign of great danger…but no one believes them! Racing against time, Melody must convince Leif and the other villagers before it’s too late. Great songs and engaging characters highlight this inspiring, animated adventure for the whole family.”

This film is releasing nationwide, but only in select theaters on the following dates:
Saturday, March 24 at 12:55PM and Monday, March 26, at 6:30pm (all local times).
Seeing this movie with your family (or inviting family friends) is a great way to spark meaningful conversations about faith, right and wrong, and other important topics with children. As those conversations can often be difficult, it’s important to find something that you can enjoy together and then talk about deeper meaning and themes afterwards!
Here are a few questions you can ask children after seeing the movie:
- Tell me what you thought of Melody? (Or any of the other characters)
- What did you think that he did that was good?
- Was there anything that she did that you think we could do in our own lives?
- When X happened, what do you think that meant?
- Did any of the characters remind of you Jesus?
- What do you think the moral of this story is?
