Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir DVD

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir DVD
Shout! Factory, 2016. DVD

By day, Mariette Dupain-Cheng is an awkward and sometimes clumsy girl living in the beautiful city of Paris. But she is hiding a BIG secret. Whenever Paris comes under attack she changes into Ladybug, a superhero who uses her powers to fight the forces of evil. Her super sidekick is a mysterious boy her own age that she knows only as Cat Noir. What Marinette doesn't know is that behind his mask Cat Noir is actually a member of her class at school--a boy named Adrien Agreste--on whom she secretly has a huge crush.

Miraculous is a fun new cartoon that is a joy to behold from beginning to end. The CGI graphics are brilliant, colorful, and richly rendered. The cast of characters is diverse and engaging. Girl power abounds--but Cat Noir and the important part he plays in each adventure is nothing to sneeze at. Both laugh-out-loud-hilarious and even poignant at times, this DVD is sure to be extremely popular, especially with tweens.
