Sirocco and the Kingdom of the Winds (2023) Animation First 2024

Two girls are sent to stay with an aunt who is a writer of fantastic tales.  While the aunt sleeps the girls end up meeting one of the characters from the stories. When he opens a portal back to his world the girls follow and find themselves trapped in the world of their aunt’s creation.

Visually overwhelming film is going to be the favorite film of generations of kids. Set in a world of pure magic and wonder SIROCCO delights. It has images that make you talk out loud  as you stare in wide eyed wonder. I was blown away and I never wanted it to end because this was echoed the magic of my dreams.

The story is good and it results in some jaw dropping set pieces. While the film signals much too early that things will be okay, the film still manages to be suspenseful as we wonder how the girls are going to go back home.

I really loved this film a great deal, so much so that I’m considering going to the screening on the weekend.

Recommended where even or whenever you can see it.
