    Instant classic.
    Easily ranks among the best from the Disney Studio, and a very worthy successor to Mulan 1998, a similar story equally well done.
    Oddly also seems to be best work ever from Dwayne Johnson, perhaps not the first name I would have associated with "voice acting," but a star turn nonetheless.
    If you want to be picky -- which is the reviewer's job, after all -- the momentum slows a little at the top of the third act, but the ultimate themes of redemption, forgiveness and self-discovery at the finale are an absolute joy.
    As they used to say, "for children of all ages."
