    • Yeah, didn’t it keep with the book’s original title, An Adventure with Scientists, elsewhere? Band of Misfits does sound so very generic, but some marketing team was probably afraid Americans wouldn’t want to mix pirates with scientists, especially mixing Darwin in there.

  1. I admit I overlooked this one too – I had Brave down as a lock for the Oscar in this category. Now I’ll have to suit up and check this one out. What’s it like for very young children? Not too scary?

    • I’d say it’s pretty good for the little ones. Not much violence (though Cutlass Liz has a thing about casually stabbing people) and very few scary images. Kids will probably love Polly and Darwin’s monkey assistant, Bobo.
