About the Film
From the makers of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, Turbo is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an ordinary snail who dares to dream big - and fast. After a freak accident miraculously gives him the power of super-speed, Turbo kicks his dreaming into overdrive and embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the seemingly impossible: competing in most famous auto race in the world. But not everyone thinks this mollusk has the muscle to make it to the winners circle, and it's only with the help of his tricked-out streetwise snail crew that this ultimate underdog proves that no dream is too big, and no dreamer too small.
