Wonder Park

Let your imagination be the light!

In the animated spectacle "Wonder Park," available now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD Combo Pack, the heroine of our story is June (voiced by Brianna Denski), who, along with her mother, voiced by Jennifer Garner, has devised the ultimate playground. In Wonder Park, anything that the pair can imagine comes to life, especially when June's mom whispers into the ear of the park's principal mascot, the splendiferous chimp named Peanut.

Along with June to provide the inspiration and a magical marker, Peanut is able to turn anything the pair can think of into the next star attraction of Wonder Park, forever bringing visitors back year after year, exciting to see what the new thrill ride might be. Perhaps it's a carousel of flying fish or a roller coaster that runs through a wormhole in space! With all of her mother's encouragement to inspire her imagination, June's Wonder Park is without limits and continues to grow and grow, until her mom reveals she's very sick and needs to go away for a little while.

June doesn't know what to think and is completely heartbroken when her dad drives her mom to the hospital. In her mother's absence, she decides to put away all of her Wonder Park toys and focus on taking care of matters at home, and that includes watching out for a dad. With more important things preoccupying her time, June no longer has time for Wonder Park. When it's time for June to go away for the summer to Math Camp, she cannot bear to leave her dad alone and runs back home. On her way, she runs into some familiar friends...

Hidden deep in the woods, June discovers Wonder Park is real, and all of the animal mascots she and her mom dreamed up are also very much alive — but something is terribly wrong: A sinister darkness has taken over Wonder Park and left it in disarray. All the attractions are being dismantled by an army of angry chimp zombies! Greta (voiced by Mila Kunis) is skeptical that June will be able to persuade Peanut to come out of hiding and help them save the park. June will also have to find faith in herself and reignite her imagination to help her new friends.

"Wonder Park" is the perfect summer animated thrill ride the entire family can enjoy. It is full of beautifully designed and ingeniously authentic looking cartoons that are impossible to resist. Full of emotion and adventure, it'll warm the heart and raise the spirit. The Blu-ray is packed with bonus features that include "Sing-Along" sessions with June and tutorials on how to draw Boomer and the Wonder Chimps and much, much more. If you can't take the family to the theme park, bring "Wonder Park" to them. It's worth the price of admission.
