RKS 2023 Film: “Katak the Brave Beluga”: Do You Need to be a Brave Parent?

Do you meet the requirement often intended with animated films offered to small children? Are you ready for sappy sweet voices and simplistic plot lines. Perhaps these kiddie animated films are cringeworthy? Even so being a parent put on a brave face and smile as don’t we all have to make sacrifices for our children?

Good news with “Katak the Brave Beluga”. Although the voices are a bit overdone with innocence this film is watchable by both parent and child.

Katak must travel a great distance to retrieve grandfather Beluga, cad that he was, for leaving pregnant grandma Beluga behind. Grandma Beluga is on her last fin and will seeing grandfather Beluga revive her? Suspense!

Katak makes all sorts of cute friends on the way including Canada Geese with Newfoundlander accents, cod, sturgeon, puffins, seagulls and seals. Humour!

Katak encounters enemies including a polar bear and a killer whale. Fear!

Katak is bullied. Social relevance!

Katak and his pod face dangers of commercial shipping. Educational relevance! Environmental messaging!

Katak is maturing and still has his puppy gray colour whereas he should be turning white. The nastiness of social exclusion!

Katak shows that physical aberrations can be overcome. Bravery and Global Inclusion!

All said and done parents. You won’t suffer terribly through their film. The little mites will love it.

This Quebec film will have an extensive theatrical release in Canada on February 24th.
