You must 'Meet the Robinsons'

Yesterday I spent the afternoon at the movies with my two children; we watched ‘Meet the Robinsons’. This movie was a dazzling trip to the future through the eyes of Walt Disney. It was not only entertaining and witty but the movie also illustrated some key themes for 21st century living- creativity, curiosity, risk taking, learning through mistakes…
The theme of the movie was ‘moving forward' and the following quote marked the end of the movie.
“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
–Walt Disney

If ever you needed an excuse to show a movie to your class and unpack some of the themes – this is the one.
