SMALLFOOT
May 18, 2019  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

Some very recognizable and attractive people are heard but not seen in this clever 2018 animated comedy, which is about a hidden community of yeti “discovering” a longmored human – in their parlance, a “smallfoot.” Channing Tatum provides the voice of Migo, Zendaya plays Meechee, Common is the Stonekeeper, and LeBron James is Gwangi. Quite a crew, especially notable given that they’re all being hired, in this case, primarily for their vocal skills. So are Danny DeVito, Gina Rodriguez and especially James Corden, who has the title role. Lots of fun, for kids and adults – and it manages to say something significant not only about friendship and faith, but about myths and religion.
