Target Age: Young Kids
Buzz Factor: The summer's first big animated adventure is a nature lover's dream, courtesy of the team responsible for "Ice Age" and "Rio." Teen protagonist Mary Katherine (voiced by Amanda Seyfried) is the daughter of a kooky professor (Jason Sudeikis) who's convinced there are miniature guardians of the forest. She finds out he's right when she's magically shrunken and encounters the Leafmen and their enchanted world. Mary Katherine could be this year's Merida as she helps the Leafmen defend the woods from evil. —Common Sense Media
