Little Giants

Best films with kid heroes

Add a list or tag with showdown:kids

Grown ups be crazy. This Showdown celebrates the brave, funny and loyal young heroes of the silver screen. Kids who stand up for what’s right, friends who stick together when things go wrong. A little guy saving an orca, a girl riding her whale, a kid home on their own, the boy who lived. List up to ten of your favorite films of any genre where the kid is the hero (even if they were to blame for opening the gates of hell in the first place). And whatever just happened, blame it on the pig.
