      Another masterpiece by the father of Minions, "The Challenger League"

       First of all, in "Challenger League", I saw several "supporting roles" that appeared in previous animations, such as "Minions" in "Despicable Me" and Mushu in "Mulan" The dragon and the donkey in "Shrek", and this time the scene-stealing supporting roles were replaced with tabletop football puppets. These scene-stealing counter-attackers not only did not get the audience's plan, but once again increased the entertainment of the film. , makes the state of mind when watching relaxed and...

      Every character has its own brilliance

       Usually in the eyes of ordinary people, small people are always insignificant, without brilliance, and cannot compete with the so-called big people. Small people are always at the bottom of the dark, and big people are always at the top of the pyramid. But the light from the top of the tower is only temporary, after all, it can't compare with the scenery at the bottom of the tower.
         The film "Challenger League" is a good explanation of how little people step by step to the top of the...

      Narrator: At the dawn of time, a profound discovery was made about our planet. It was boring. But boredom makes you think. And thinking gives you ideas. And what was the first idea? I'll tell you what the first idea was. "Must... kick... ball." Soccer made us compete. And soccer made us work together. More or less. In other words, it made us... human. Soccer isn't just a game. It's who we are.
