This animation studio never lets us down. From the same studio that brought you the ever popular How To Train Your Dragon, Abominable scores a staggering 95% from audiences, offering a beautifully animated and overall engaging adventure that the whole family can enjoy.
After discovering a Yeti on the roof of her apartment building, teenage Yi and her two friends embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family. But to do so, they must stay one step ahead of a wealthy financier and a determined zoologist who want to capture the beast for their own gain.
One evening, Yi, a young teenager, encounters the Yeti near her cubby house on the roof of her Shanghai apartment building, which she names “Everest.” While hiding him from Burnish Industries’ helicopters, Yi gains his trust by feeding him Baozi and treating his wounds. Yi learns that Everest wants to reunite with his family on Mount Everest while Everest learns about Yi’s desire to travel across China. When Burnish Industries’ private security forces closes in on Everest’ hiding place, Everest flees with Yi. After narrowly escaping a Burnish helicopter at the Oriental Pearl Tower, Yi and Everest flee on a ship carrying red cola cans, followed by her 2 friends
Yi, Everest, and the boys reach a port in southern China and travel on a truck. After their crate falls off the truck, they end up in a forest. There, Everest awes the humans with his mystical powers of stimulating growth among blueberry plants.
Continuing their journey, the humans and Everest eventually reach the Himalayas. While crossing a bridge, they are trapped on both sides by Burnish Industries’ forces. However, Mr Burnish experiences a change of heart after seeing Everest protecting the children; causing him to experience a flashback to his first encounter with the yeti which was protecting its young.
After the inevitable ‘bady’ trying to spoil things, all turns out well with Mr Burnish agreeing to keep Everest’s existence a secret in order to protect the Yetis, and helping to reunite him with this family on Mount Everest.
