Big Laughs and Big Fun with DreamWorks Turbo #giveaway #TurboFastFun

I took my kids to see Turbo in theatres last summer. I have to admit that I didn’t know much about the movie going in. As soon as the film started I loved it. The animation, the character, the voices. This was a movie I knew I’d watch again.

I’m so excited that it’s coming out on Blu-Ray and DVD on November 12th.

{About Turbo}

Turbo is the story of a garden snail with big dreams to race and win the Indy 500. Turbo is bored in his safe and slow snail community. He ventures out one night and gets sucked in the supercharger of a drag racer and accidentally ingests nitrous oxide which gives him super speed. Turbo meets many interesting characters in this adventure packed film. With training, help from his friends and sponsors Turbo makes it to the Indy 500. You’ll have to watch the movie to see what happens to this special little snail.

The cast of Turbo includes Ryan Reynolds, Snoop Dogg, Samuel L. Jackson and Michelle Rodriguez.

To help you warm up your engines for this hysterical film, DreamWorks has compiled a list of other films that have unlikely animal and human friendships in family film!

Dr. Doolittle

Eddie Murphy stars as the title character in 1998’s Dr. Doolittle, a film about a doctor who realizes he has the unique ability to understand and talk to animals! Dr. Doolittle befriends a dog named Lucky (voiced by Norm Macdonald), and Lucky helps him realize his true calling as someone who was meant to bond with and help animals. With Lucky’s (and many other animals’) help, Dr. Doolittle is able to save a very sick tiger, which aids in bringing his family closer together and helps his medical practice.

Free Willy

In 1993’s Free Willy, 12 year-old Jesse is forced to work at a theme park as penance for vandalizing it. There, he meets and befriends Willy, a captive orca whale with a collapsed dorsal fin. Because Willy responds to Jesse’s commands, he earns a long-term job at the park. Jesse eventually learns that the park’s management has plans to kill Willy in order to collect the $1 million insurance policy on him. In an iconic showdown scene, Jesse guides Willy up and over a rock wall to freedom, where he returns to his family.

Mary Poppins

In the Academy Award-winning 1964 film Mary Poppins, Julie Andrews stars as the title character. This magical nanny takes charge of the Banks children, and along with her dear friend, Bert (Dick Van Dyke), takes the children on a delightful adventure through an animated park, where the group dances and gallivants with various cartoon animals (including penguins, horses, and foxes). After teaching the children and their parents some valuable lessons about family, Mary Poppins leaves the Banks’ home, having changed their lives for the better.

How To Train Your Dragon

2010’s computer-animated film, How to Train Your Dragon, tells the story of Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel), a young Viking teenager, who aspires to be a dragon slayer. After capturing his first dragon, he realizes he doesn’t want to kill it and instead befriends it. Hiccup names the dragon Toothless, and fashions a prosthetic tail for him so that he can fly again. Hiccups tries to show his village the true nature of the dragons – that they are actually not cruel – and, eventually, is able to convince the Vikings and dragons to work together.


Dreamers Tito (Michael Pena) and Turbo (Ryan Reynolds) are a perfect friendship match when they cross paths. Even though Turbo can only speak to Tito through written words, Tito helps him accomplish his dream of racing in the Indy 500 and Turbo saves Tito’s taco business!
