Yet the Miyazaki-style magic and gentle subversion of Jill Culton's film stops it from feeling like an extended tourist promo. The 12ft dandelions are a delight.

Here's a defanged, declawed yeti in an animation whose every beat, character and narrative component feels as if it has been algorithmically tested for commercial safety by a computer programme.

Where Abominable may fall down is in the nuts and bolts of charming your little ones. The dialogue is flat, the slapstick flabby.

Abominable strives for originality and, often, achieves it. But it's also never quite daring enough to veer off the beaten path.

[A] movie that has rich potential that it too often squanders in favor of routine cartoon antics.

No, "Abominable" doesn't reinvent the wheel - but it does deliver a lovely ride.
