WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In a world co-inhabited by giant monsters and regular-sized humans, the sport of monster wrestling has turned some of the world’s biggest creatures into superstar athletes. A young human named Winnie (Viswanathan) seeks to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a monster trainer, and she soon sets her eyes on Steve (Arnett), an inexperienced monster athlete, to become her fighter to pit against reigning champion Tentacular (Crews)…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Watching giant monsters fight each other has always made for great entertainment, which this fun animated outing gets very right with its unique wrestling angle.
