The next big movie to head to Disney+ just dropped it's trailer this week!  Flora & Ulysses is about a girl and a squirrel - but not just any ordinary squirrel. . .one with superpowers.  Based on the Newberry Award winning book by the same name, I'm excited to take a look at the newest family film coming to Disney+ on February 19th!

Flora & Ulysses Trailer Release



Let's talk about how much I love this trailer.  First - the cast.  Matilda Lawler is absolutely adorable in this trailer as Flora and I can't get enough of her spunk on camera.  Her parents, played by Alyson Hannigan (you remember. . .that one summer, at band camp) and Ben Schwartz (yes - the voice of Sonic from last year's blockbuster hit!) are comedy gold as well.  I was really excited to see their chemistry and humor light up this trailer.  The story is also really cool.  I mean, who doesn't love a superhero squirrel.  Ulysses looks like he is going to be a great leading animal and may just be positioning himself for a win in that category next awards season! 

I'm really excited to see this on Disney+!  What do you think?
