Movie Info

Synopsis: Each night, when Ben falls asleep, his Crayons' magical Crayon Box transports them to COLOR CITY, a world of dazzling hues, soaring fantasy and the whimsy of childhood. When YELLOW is accidentally left behind in Ben's room, she awakens two Unfinished Drawings: KING SCRAWL, a huge monster, and GNAT, Scrawl's sidekick. They follow Yellow to Color City and claim the enchanted Rainbow Waterfall and all of its color for themselves. Soon Color City will fade and our lovable crayon characters will disappear. It's up to Yellow and her pals, BLUE, GREEN, RED, and the twins, BLACK and WHITE, to save the day. Meeting with fantastical creatures and fun adventures along the way, Yellow discovers she has more courage than she knew and learns to believe in herself and to count on the support of her friends. Replete with valuable life lessons, THE HERO OF COLOR CITY will entertain and inspire. (c) Magnolia

Critic Reviews for The Hero of Color City

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (12)

It should appeal to the little ones, but there's not much here for the over-sixes.

April 30, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The story and characterizations never get much deeper than "We're all special in our own way." At times, the five writers borrow a little too heavily from other properties.

Even if you allow for the the fact that the film is geared towards the 5-year-old set, it's still a pretty dreary experience, made even more so by screamingly vivid colors, uninspiring animation and grating songs.

October 3, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A weak Toy Story-esque animated film for preschool kids made with little imagination, little art, and even less soul.

October 3, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It's a fun, fantastical tale for the toddler set but may not translate to older children who are too tied up with heady video games. For adults, it may take you back to a time when crayons were king.

October 3, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This is a pretty lame computer-generated animated movie that will likely not engage kids much past the first grade.
