My three children are studying ancient Egypt in our history homeschool class so we were very excited to view the new Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital copy release of The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec. This is an excellent family movie that is packed from the start with adventure and my young daughter and I were thrilled to see a strong female lead character in this action movie.
The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec , a film by filmmaker Luc Besson features Adele Blanc-Sec who is an adventurer and author in Paris, France in 1912. When a 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg mysteriously hatches in the Natural History Museum, Adele discovers that she has a connection with the extraordinary ancient reptile. As a result, this starts a series of extraordinary events as Adele goes on the adventure of a lifetime. My children were captivated by the onscreen adventure which reminded me of a fun Indiana Jones saga. They shouted encouragement to Adele as she discovers mysterious Egyptian treasures and tries to tame this wild pterodactyl as she is foiling dangerous enemies and faces a “formidable phenomenon” to save her beloved ill sister.
We thoroughly enjoyed this exciting family film which is based on the historical fantasy book series by Jacques Tardi and I am hoping that there may be another movie based on his books. My children loved that it had so many of their favorite things including dinosaurs, mummies and fabulous settings such as Paris and Egypt. I enjoyed the smart, funny dialogue and historical content.
After watching this movie, the kids were so excited to do some of the fun activities and play with their themed toys including the Mummy Excavation Kit and the inflatable Pteranodon which my five year old actually slept with for a week. This movie inspired their imaginations and they have been role playing for days. I love watching my six year old daughter taking on the role of the female lead, Adele Blanc-Sec while her brothers were her assistants.
The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec is now available as a Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital Copy online at Amazon.com and at Walmart and Target stores.
