SMALLFOOT 4D Experience

An extraordinary adventure for all ages, SMALLFOOT 4D Experience turns myth upside down when a bright young yeti named Migo finds something he thought didn’t exist – a human. With the help of a secret society of yeti youths, Migo sets out on a spirited quest to convince his community that the legend of “smallfoot” is actually true. Stunning 3D and special effects illuminate the humor and excitement on this discovery of friendship, courage and acceptance. Run time: 14 mins.
