It was something wonderful that they both dreamed of doing. But then he died. And then this man whom Yi cherished most, was suddenly … gone. It felt as if everything of worth in Yi's life had died, too. But the dream of the trip, well, it would live on. And Yi was determined to make it happen. Then something remarkably unexpected happens: Yi finds a young Yeti on her apartment building roof. But she soon figures it out. I know, crazy, right? I mean, how does some supposedly mythical creature end up on your roof in Shanghai?
Turns out it escaped from a nearby lab owned by an eccentric billionaire named Burnish.
The Abominable Son-in-law
And that adventurer and entrepreneur wants the big furry beastie back to prove that he did see such a creature years before while climbing Mt. Zara—keep careful watch on seemingly every street corner. Yi is joined by Jin, a social media-focused friend, and his basketball-loving little cousin, Peng; and the three teens set off to do the right thing by the young Yeti.
They name him Everest—after the mountain that they must somehow find a way to—and they do everything they can to help the creature. And the adventure helps Yi to not only connect with the memory of her father, but also to find a sense of healing through sharing her own pain and loss with her friends. Ultimately, the film subtly highlights the importance of friends and family when it comes to finding a way through deep personal loss and grief. And they both rejoice when Yi returns home with open arms after her adventure.
One particularly selfish character experiences a softening of heart after witnessing beautiful and magical happenings.
That magical ability is also given to Yi at one point as well. We find however that the instrument is actually hidden away, and Yi reserves playing it as an almost spiritual kind of communion between herself and her deceased father. Later, that violin is accidentally broken and mended by Everest with his own magical Yeti hair. Yi then plays the violin at a giant mountainside Buddha statute that her father always wanted her to see.
Yi uses the violin a couple more times for its powerful magical abilities in moments of great need and peril. Jin is obsessed with technology specifically, his smartphone and social media, and he initially rejects the idea of any magical or spiritual elements in the world. After he sees many magical, inexplicable things, however, his perspective changes.
That said, the film never explores any aspects of the Buddhist religion beyond its focus on that statuesque image. Yi later looks up to see a particularly twinkling star, perhaps a reference to her father watching over her from above. Peng also makes a wish on a dandelion. And the selfie-focused Jin is kind of vainglorious about his own good looks at first, too. In their pursuit of Everest, helicopters and armored cars repeatedly swoop in in threatening ways and large guards with tranquilizer guns take aim at the Yeti and his young human friends.
And several of the vehicles crash in storms and other magically induced events. We also witness several madcap pursuits, both through the streets of Shanghai as well as in wilder environs. Burnish can seem a bit menacing as he yells and swings his metal tipped cane around. Another villain ultimately emerges who imprisons Everest and his young friends, purposely causes an avalanche and pushes Yi off the side of an enormous suspension bridge.

Yi bandages up the bloodless cut. Guards shoot a dozen tranquilizer darts at Everest, knocking him out cold. One human is shot by a dart, too, knocking that person out. She also lies to her mother and grandmother when she deems it necessary to shade the truth. There are a few light toilet giggles in the mix of things. In order to get Everest back home, the kids stow away on board a barge. They break into shipping crates, lie to their parents and make other reckless choices as well that this playful animated adventure invites us to overlook in the bigger context of the story of rescuing Everest.
The young popcorn munchers in your family may just see a big furry beastie with a lolling tongue and a silly grin, but there's more to this delightful Yeti tale than meets the eye. Yes, as the trailer suggests, Abominable tells the sweet story of a young Chinese girl crossing the wilds of her native land to help a magical creature get home.
It's sometimes goofy and slapstick, sometimes majestically animated, sometimes an outrace-the-bad-guys snow chase. But beneath its standard-issue, kid-flick elements, this pic examines something more serious: the impact of grief on a child. Not the sad side of grief—which is what most flicks geared toward kids will deal with.
Instead, Abominable offers an animated exploration of how great loss can tempt a person to bury her feelings.
