Extinct Movie appeals to Imagination and Reality

Flummels, a made-up word for fluffy critters, are cute little creatures with big eyes and floppy ears. One hundred million years ago, they were everywhere until they became extinct.

One day, Op and Ed, two young Flummels who love to play, tumble into a mysterious wormhole that transports them to the present day. Suddenly surrounded by skyscrapers and city lights, the Flummels are very confused about their whereabouts. They go on a crazy adventure through Shanghai, meeting new friends and making epic memories. A unique hybrid of stop-motion animation and live-action, Extinct is a heartfelt and hilarious story about friendship, family, and the bittersweet reality of growing up.

‘Flummels’ is an entertaining but sophisticated tale that should appeal to both younger children and adults.

The film’s animation is colourful and smooth, with well-drawn characters who are instantly likeable (and hilarious), making it easy to follow their story.
