Story

Moshi Monsters: The Movie is an animated children’s movie about the adventures of Katsuma (Emma Tate), Poppet (Phillipa Alexander) and their friends as they hunt down a missing artefact.

Mr Scrawl, a movie director, comes to Monstro City in search of Moshi monsters to star in his documentary. Katsuma tries his hardest to catch Mr Scrawl’s attention and become the movie’s star. But there’s a crisis when Dr Strangeglove (Ashley Slater) steals the Great Moshling Egg, which has been discovered by archaeologist Mr Bumblechops (Keith Wickham). Dr Strangeglove wants to hatch the egg into a monstrous glump that will help him to take over the world.

Dr Strangeglove tries to trick Katsuma and friends into taking part in this evil scheme. He sends Katsuma and friends to find the three objects he needs to hatch the egg. But Katsuma and Poppet know about Dr Strangeglove’s plan. They collect the objects with the intention of stealing the egg back. After Dr Strangeglove captures them and takes the objects, Katsuma escapes with the help of his friend Mr Snoodle and releases all of the previously kidnapped Moshi monsters. He gathers them into an army to scare off Dr Strangeglove and his minions. Monstro City is saved, and the egg is back in the safe hands of Mr Bumblechops.

Ideas to discuss with your children

Moshi Monsters: The Movie is a light-hearted tale of adventure and personal growth. Although Katsuma is initially obsessed with being the centre of attention and showing how he is better than everyone else, he soon learns that teamwork is the most important thing. His friend Poppet teaches him that it’s OK to lean on your friends for support, and that sharing the spotlight with others doesn’t make your contribution any less worthwhile.

Because there is little violence and few scary scenes in Moshi Monsters: The Movie, it is suitable for children of all ages.

The main messages from this movie are about the difference between people who abuse their position and power, and people who help others for selfless reasons. The movie shows that behaving selfishly doesn’t pay off and eventually leads to isolation and social rejection.

Values in this movie that you could reinforce with your children include:

  • being humble and not always trying to be the centre of attention
  • trusting your friends to help you when you need it, and understanding that you can’t do everything on your own
  • understanding that there are more important things in life than being famous.

This movie could also give you the chance to talk with your children about real-life issues such as:

  • abusing and misusing power
  • putting your trust only in people you know, not in strangers.
