This is a wonderful movie. It's fun, clever and the graphics are amazing. I took advantage of this attractive scene to practice the use of demonstrative pronouns, because the characters use them all the time in a contextualized and visual manner.
I. Before watching the scene, complete the blanks with THIS, THAT, THESE, or THOSE. There is more than one possible answer.
1. __________ is a big nest.
2. What's ________?

3. All your guests pass under __________ door?
4. Oh, ________ is too bad! Now we have to go home!
