Family Movie Night with Kiara the Brave and Space Dogs!

I was recently introduced to Phase 4 Films, a company that is releasing 8 new family-friendly films. I am so excited to be working with them to share these films with you just in time to plan some fun movie nights this summer!

This weekend we had some pretty sever thunderstorms with lots of rain. So we were happy to curl up and watch some fun movies as a family. We started with Kiara the Brave and Space Dogs.

Kiara the Brave was released this past June and takes viewers to Dreamzone, a peaceful and magical kingdom under the rule of King Maximus. The serene kingdom faces sudden change when the King is captured and imprisoned by his evil brother, Dreadmis. The King's daughter, courageous Princess Kiara, must conquer evil and restore harmony in Dreamzone, returning her father to the throne.

Kiara the Brave has an 80 minute run time and is rated PG. This film can be found at your local Redbox, Target, Walmart, and at Amazon.com.

I was thrilled with this film! My daughter is currently very into Princess's. Anything with a princess is ok by her! So she was very excited to meet a new princess and go on this adventure. What I loved about this movie is that it portrayed Princess Kiara in such a positive light. She was very brave and obviously cared a great deal about her family. Instead of needing to rely on a prince to save her, she stepped up to save the day and protect her father. What a wonderful message to send to little girls who truly believe in fairy tales!


Space Dogs was also released in June and is an exciting, animated tale based on the true life story of Belka and Strelka, two dogs sent into space in 1960. Belka and Strelka are a circus dog and a rough-and-tumble stray who embark on an out-of-this-world adventure, humbly becoming the most famous canine cosmonauts.

Space Dogs has a run time of 88 minutes and is rated G. This DVD can be found at your local Redbox, Target, Walmart, and on Amazon.com.

I have found that anything with funny, talking dogs is almost always a it with kids. There is just something really humorous about them and Belka and Stelka are no exception. These two sure make for one silly adventure. My daughter really enjoyed this film, and my husband and I also found it entertaining. Again, this movie is filled with good messages for kids. These two have to work together because without team work they would't get themselves back to Earth. They create a wonderful friendship and overcome lots of obstacles together. It's a fun movie for the whole family and perfect for family movie night!

I received these DVD's from Phase 4 for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
