One of my favorite things is a simple love story. To find someone to love and who loves you for who you are is a precious gift. When you find that someone, you don’t let them get away. If you lose them, you search. True love is worth a whole lot.
The Love of Blank and Bow
If you fancy yourself a lover of love and friendship, I suggest you check out Disney Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story. It is so perfectly cute, visually stunning and at its core, a story that celebrates individuality, adventure, love and friendship in a short film that is free and perfect for the whole family.
Blank and Bow are different. They come off the belt without color. Bow finds blank and gives him a bow-tie. They have a connection. She tries to get away with him, but she is caught and sent off to be colored in. Blank won’t let her go that easily, and what follows is his journey to find his love, while he makes unexpected friends and learns that being unique is good and that coloring the world in your own style is great.
Blank is taken through water, snow and wind to get to his gal. When his big friend fashions him a hang glider from a red leaf shaped as a heart, I cried a little. The whole concept is so sweet.
There are no words in this story, and none are needed for you or your kids. The music is perfect for the story line. The bad cranes come around in the end and get a little colorful themselves and of course, true love wins the day. I love the message to paint your world. Sometimes we are all afraid to go for it, to be ourselves and to invite others to join us rather than be angry because people are different. I was reminded by this quirky little move how simple some lessons are. I will watch this with my kids anytime and I encourage you to check it out. Just the stop motion technology will amaze you if the story doesn’t wow you right away!
Now, check out the trailer or the full movie and let me know what you think!
