Axel, a rascal and self-proclaimed hero, sets out on an incredible journey with this friend Jono, to save his village by finding a rare plant called Bonta. Along the way he’ll battle the elements, fight the crazed Lizard King and save a princess, all to find out what it means to be a real hero.
Being a hero is not all about one person or thing. In this case it’s about helping others but also about having others help you. Axel is a unique little character that wants to be a hero for everyone in his search for the cactus they call Bonta. He thinks he should do it all by himself but his little friend Juno wants to help so he tags along on the journey.The duo learns a lot about themselves in their travels and about others they meet. They also learn about being a team, sharing and trust. This is a charming and unique animated movie that encourages children with many lessons, for example: being a hero is not always just one person but it sometimes can take a team of friends to help in a situation. Axel and Juno are lovable one-footed characters that the entire family will enjoy. We are proud to award this movie the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
