Chatting to Joe Sugg and Casper Lee about Wonder Park

Wonder Park is a splendiferous new animation that tackles the issue of explaining emotional intelligence to young children: how to express feelings and transform negative emotions into something positive! For this alone it is very educational. London Mums have been lucky enough to meet some of the stars involved in making this film. While I was cruising the North Sea, my lovely friend and London Mums’ contributor Rosalba Costantini met Caspar Lee & Joe Sugg  about their voice-overs as beavers in Wonder Park. I am a bit jealous, actually. Check her interview on our YouTube channel. I love her Italian accent! And when she keeps the cheeky beaver duo focused with her finger ‘one answer each!’ Ha Ha. Enjoy! I could watch it on repeat all day long! Well done, Rosalba, you rock! Spoiler alert!

The story

Wonder Park tells the story of a magnificent amusement park where the imagination of a wildly creative girl named June comes alive. One magical day, June is running through the woods to find her way home where she discovers an old roller-coaster car and climbs inside. She suddenly finds herself in Wonderland, an amusement park she had created in her mind and put aside. All of her rides and characters are brought to life but are falling into disarray without her. Now, with the help of her fun and lovable park characters, June will have to put the wonder back in Wonderland before it is lost forever.

The verdict

Wonder Park is a colourful and adventurous animation made by Paramount Studios that will help young viewers understand how to deal with emotions.

 

Ultimately  it is the story about a child feeling anxious about her sick mother, and how she copes with the distressing situation by avoiding things that once made her happy.

Emotional intelligence is one of the things that seems lacking in the young generation but yet one of the most important ones in life. I have made it my personal mission to educate my son on how to be kind and sensitive to others. It does not necessarily come easy to him and to most people these days. Wonder Park can be a good conversation topic on this important issue so from my parenting perspective it’s a good family film to watch together over and over again. 

Rating: PG (for some mild thematic elements and action)

Wonder Park is released on 12 April, with previews from 8 April 2019.

London Mums’ rating: 7/10
