THE OOGIELOVES IN THE BIG BALLOON ADVENTURE is a unique, interactive movie experience for young children and their families. It is a family musical that allows children to be children, encouraging them to sing and dance with their friends on-screen and to help “move” the adventure along. From the opening title sequence until the ﬁnal song and dance number, children are invited to take part in this fun and fantastic Oogielove adventure.
The ﬁlm follows the Oogieloves – Goobie, Zoozie and Tooﬁe – as they set out to ﬁnd ﬁve magical golden balloons in time for their good friend Schluufyʼs surprise birthday party. With the help of their best friends, J. Edgar, Windy Window and Ruffy, and the support of many extraordinary new friends whom they meet along the way, the Oogieloves travel throughout all of beautiful LovelyLoveville on their search. They’ll need plenty of creative thinking, teamwork and enthusiasm to rescue these one-of-a-kind balloons in time for the big celebration. But when the Oogieloves work together with the audience, they can achieve anything!
At a private Pre-screening of the soon to be released Movie,Participating MomBloggers had the pleasure of meeting the movie’s producer, Ken Viselmann (The Teletubbies and Thomas the Tank)and writer Scott Stabile in a round table discussion where they shared the vision for this movie prior to the viewing. They wanted to make the movie an active experience instead of a passive experience. One in which caretakers could actually interact with their children.
When it was time for the all to view the movie it was fun for all! The kids both young and old were very involved,waiting for the verbal and visual cues to actively participate. Throughout the movie there was use of repetition in song and dance to create a bonding experience between child and caregiver. Although the movie is geared to 3-5 year olds my 11 yr old son and 13 yr old niece enjoyed it just as much! What I really Loved was that Oogieloves was “refreshing” to say the least! There were no hidden adult innuendos nor inappropriate behavior that are still found VERY often in “kid” movies or television programs. For this reason its a #ratedGGG by Oogielovers! They anticipate The Oogieloves to be the largest Independent Family Movie to open Labor Day Weekend, with the Only original content this year that is Rated G and is Not a Documentary!Let’s help promote this movie and it’s message, and it’s goodness!
