Age-By-Age Guide
Animation | Life Lessons
When the aspiring prima ballerina wins a place in the Metroquefort Ballet Junior Dance Company, she must decide whether to leave her friends and family to pursue her dream or stay home in the smaller spotlight of Camembert Academy.

Angelina is so empowering for little girls because, even though she's small--she's a mouse, after all!--she has a fierce determination and is willing to work hard to reach her goals. For preschoolers who can't get enough of Angelina, this feature-length movie is a dream come true!
Baby (0-2)
Maybe Babies won't understand how Angelina's decision is even a decision--they would never choose to leave home!--but they will understand her love for music and dance. Two-year-olds may be on their feet, dancing and singing along with her, and may even use a broom to be their partner, just like she does!
Preschool (3-5)
Yes Preschoolers will relate to Angelina's desire to be the center of attention and will find it reassuring to learn that everyone--including Angelina--makes mistakes. They'll enjoy reminiscing with her as she remembers some of the best times she's had with her friends and family and tries to decide whether to accept the opportunity she's been offered. Young viewers will agree with Angelina's younger sister, Polly, who has trouble pronouncing all the dance vocabulary, including corps de ballet and pas de chaval, and sighs, "So many new words!"
Kids (6-9)
Maybe Most kids in this age group have probably outgrown Angelina Ballerina, but those on the younger end may be curious to see how she makes this big decision and will learn the big lesson that "there's good and bad either way."
Tweens (10-12)
No This movie is intended for younger children.
