Best part of story, including ending: What I love about the movie is how happy it makes you feel. The animation is beautiful and the story keeps you engaged.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene would have to be when Beblu,Rafael,Nico,Pedro,and Jewel are in a mini electric train on the way to Luiz's garage.

Opinion about the main character: What I enjoy about the main character Blu is how he overcomes his fears and how he was able to end up with the woman of his dreams Jewel.
