Filled with Illumination’s signature subversive humor, authentic heart, and unforgettable characters, and hailed as “something the whole family can enjoy” (Collider), MIGRATION is a hilariously funny, feathered family vacation like no other! Fans can join the Mallard family, as they embark on a journey south for the winter to Jamaica via New York City, only for their well-laid plans to go awry, leading to new friends and unknown horizons.

My review:
My favorite character in this film was the little sister, but they were all good. Awkwafina was also hilarious as a New York City pigeon (voicing it). 

The voice cast in this one definitely had a ton of A-listers: Kumail Nanjiani as the dad duck, Elizabeth Banks as the mom, Keegan-Michael Key, Awkwafina, and Danny DeVito as the uncle duck. 

I did think it was a little scary for very young children; I would recommend it for those 7 or 8 years of age and older, unless you have a 5-6 year old who is more mature / doesn't get scared easily. (for example, there's a scene where the duck family fears they will be eaten by another creature ... sorry if spoilers!)

Overall I really liked this movie, though, and would give it 3.5/5 stars.
