Once upon a time...in the far away kingdom of Dor...lived a brave and virtuous mouse with comically oversized ears who dreamt of becoming a knight. Banished from his home for having such lofty ambitions, Despereaux sets off on an amazing adventure with his good-hearted rat friend Roscuro, who leads him, at long last, on a very noble quest to rescue an endangered princess and save an entire kingdom from darkness. Based on the heartwarming children's bestselling book and featuring the voice talents of an all-star cast, The Tale of Despereaux is a magical, modern fairytale that's destined to win the hearts of young and old alike.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Despereaux is a pleasantly immersive, beautifully animated, occasionally sleepy tale.
Fresh: Despereaux is a rare creature, not only for the handmade look and subtlety of its computer-generated imagery but also for its irony-free embrace of once-upon-a-time storytelling.
Rotten: The imagery is colorful and artfully rendered, but the filmmakers, favoring technological wizardry over story, have beefed up the narrative with teeming rodent civilizations, a seafaring sequence, and gladiatorial action pieces.
Rotten: Despereaux is a little too desperate to be loved.
I love Despereaux! It is one of my favorite movies ever and I recomend it to everyone of all ages. He is the cutest mouse ever and a very brave knight. Anyone who watches it will instantly fall in love with it
