These live action films tell the stories of kids who are learning how to spread their wings. Along the way, they have adventures, test their courage and make decisions they have to stick with. Join them, and you'll wander a city's unfamiliar streets, leap past your birthday, turn a hospital room into luxurious digs and even help the moon get back to the sky.
