This gorgeously ornate, amusingly operatic CGI fantasy takes place in the Indian Ocean, where a settlement of “piranha birds” lives on the back of an octopus, which feeds on the birds when he gets hungry. Facing extinction, the birds get the idea to send a message in a bottle out to see. A white mouse named Eddie answers their call and travels to their island with an escape plan – but will it work?
