The movie Spark has a teen Monkey and his friends in an intergalactic battle. It sounds like this is verging on the ridiculous but let’s go with it anyway, it is an animation after all and it has some pretty decent names attached too. Let’s give the trailer a whirl below.

In a world which looks to be inhabited by Monkeys, Foxes and Hogs, we find Spark and his friends hiding out in an underground bunker after the planet was destroyed by the evil Monkey Zhong. Spark wants to stop being treated as a kid so he can join his friends on a mission to save the world from Zhong’s evil plan. Obviously, this loony animation is aimed at an audience no older than the age of five.
