How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

How does the naming of some of the animals affect our feelings towards them? Do you have as much sympathy for those without a name? One character, that is seen protecting a younger member of a herd, is given the title of “Aunty.” Why do you think the filmmakers chose to title instead of name this character?

All of the major characters in this film are female. Why? Do you think this gender selection has an additional affect on the audience’s reaction to the movie?
