Starchild: The captivating world of movies for Malaysian children

Asher Wang Qi Chuen, 5

Movies are like magic; they can take you on incredible adventures, make you laugh until your tummy hurts, or even teach you valuable lessons.

Some movies are based on real-life events, like when brave astronauts went to the moon, while others are make-believe, filled with talking animals and enchanting places. There are action-packed films with heroes saving the day, thrilling adventures where pirates search for hidden treasures, and stories set in the future with flying cars and robots.

Movies are more than just entertainment; they can teach us important things too. Maybe your favourite movie taught you to be brave like a superhero or to never give up, no matter how tough things get. Or perhaps it’s simply about having fun and going on a wild ride with your imagination.

Recently Starchild asked readers to send in letters on the topic, Favourite Movie. Here’s what they had to say.

“I like popular Disney movie Aladdin. My favourite character is Aladdin who poses as Prince Ali. My favourite scene is where the bad Jafar was tricked into becoming the genie. I learned that I should not be greedy like Jafar,” writes Asher Wang Qi Chuen, five.

Older sister Bethany Wang Qi Syuen, eight, likes Disney’s Frozen series of movies. “I like Anna and Elsa’s characters. From them, I have learned that siblings should love each other and always help one another. I love all the songs in the movies too.”

Hubert Chua Way Bo, six, likes the Transformers movie series. “I like to see robots transforming into cars, lorries and planes. My most favourite robots are Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. Bumblebee is a bright yellow Autobot and he can transform to a cool yellow car! Optimus Prime is red and blue, he is the leader.

“My favourite cartoon TV series is One-Punch Man. It is based on a Japanese manga about Saitama who can defeat his enemies with a single punch,” writes Chuah Seng Koon, seven.
