      2:14:43 Actually...
      It makes no sence...
      Since..if she was Young Ursula...
      And she got the nickname(or had a name) Ursula...
      *How did Ariel bot recognise her in first movie?*
      I guess if you write it in a scene where Ariel never sees her or her transformation/banishment by king it can kinda work but still.

    I don't really agree with the criticism for Bambi 2 tbh. I really loved the Great Prince's characterization-- he's someone who always has to be alone and essentially has to love his family from a distance due to his role in the herd. He's stern because he's never known anything else, until he spends time with his son and begins to realize how nice it is to have a close relationship with somebody. He knows he needs to be cold and distant because of his role, but he can't help letting his walls down because Bambi brings him so much joy, and so much of the conflict of the movie is because the Prince doesn't know how to express these complex emotions because he's never had to before. The movie also touches on dealing with the loss of a loved one, and does it in a very subtle way by showing how Bambi and the Prince handle their loss in different ways. Bambi asks questions and talks about his mother in order to cope, while the Prince would rather pretend she never existed so he doesn't have to process it. Idk I just think they handle a really heavy topic in a really charming way.

    Yeah... The Goofy Movie. 10/10 for the disappoint level on the lack of any resolution as to what happened to Roxanne. So much time devoted to her in the original movie and then... she disappears from Max's life....

    I'm trying to make my Annabelle story more than just fanfic but a story filled with love, friendship, trust, and character growth. Where most of these films fail, I'm trying to make Annabelle succeed. And that's my tribute to Walt Disney.

    Have a look at the original DuckTales, Gummi Bears and Gargoyles. They are done by TMZ. If they didn't emulate the Disney style in those shows, I really doubt on what watch. Or maybe you really dislike HunchBack 2.

    I love Lion King 1 1/2, but that's mainly because I liked Timon and Pumba so much when I was younger. I like the little reaction cuts they do as they're "watching the movie" and I enjoy Timon's family dynamic. I'm biased because I grew up with it, but it's my favorite Disney sequel and I love going back to watch it occasionally!

    A couple of these I nearly skipped, because I couldn't remember watching them, and I prefer to know what the commentary is on about. But of practically all of those, something or other made me realise I had, in fact, seen most of them. Disney sequels are so very forgettable; I'm not totally sure why they do them. I mean, money, but I do think they're raking it in with the original hits.

    Even if most are garbage, at least direct to video sequels attempt to bring a new story to the audience rather than being just a high budget cosplay re-enactment of the original movies, like all the shameless live action remakes es people keep going to see for some odd reason.
    They do have two things in common: they’re inferior to the original and no one asked for them.

    You sorta missed the point with Aladdin and his father. The point was that yes,he did go to get riches for his family...but then he learned of the hand of midas. Desire caused him to lose sight of his original goal as he became obsessed with the hand of midas. Its in the end when his sons life is on the line that he gets his priorities straight.

    Lion King II is one of my favorite Disney movies. I actually like it more than the original. I thought it was really cute, and when I was a child I adored it. Also, I enjoyed Mulan II. Looking back on it now, I can see the problems, but as a little girl I thought the princesses were adorable and the story was sweet.

    Lion King 1 1/2 was based on the 1991 movie "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead", which is who the respective characters are based off of in Hamlet. Hamlet, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead. The Lion King, The Lion King 1 1/2. It was an interesting idea.

    As a kid, I loved these Disney sequels, especially Aladdin 2 & 3 and Simba's Pride. It's just Jasmine.... Her animation was off, or she didn't look like the original Jasmine. I dunno. But she freaked me out. I definitely remember thinking that the animation looked different, or not as good, in all of them.

    As you go through life you'll see
    There is so much that we
    Don't understand
    And the only thing we know
    Is things don't always go
    The way we planned
    But you'll see every day
    That we'll never turn away
    When it seems all your dreams come undone
    We will stand by your side
    Filled with hope and filled with pride
    We are more than we are
    We are one
    If there's so much I must be
    Can I still just be me
    The way I am?
    Can I trust in my own heart
    Or am I just one part
    Of some big plan?
    Even those who are gone
    Are with us as we go on
    Your journey has only begun
    Tears of pain, tears of joy
    One thing nothing can destroy
    Is our pride, deep inside
    We are one
    We are one, you and I
    We are like the earth and sky
    One family under the sun
    All the wisdom to lead
    All the courage that you need
    You will find when you see
    We are one
    this song I hate as a kid. but as I got older a wiser I realized how wise it was an it meaning. an get me teary eyed.T-T
    favorite part is (Tears of pain, tears of joy
    One thing nothing can destroy) as that how I know im alive an no matter what worth living. thay may be suffering but sooner or later you will have different tear of pain. the good kind. I love the 2ed one more it just felt more relatable vs the 1st as not every one know how it feel being framed an having someone part fo your family kill ur dad. vs 3 were it felt like so much relatable thing were going on from family stuff to love. to hate too race.

    Honestly, you should check out Tinkerbell: Legend of the Neverbeast.
    It's not that bad, Tinkerbell isn't even the main character in it, just the brand. Which, actually makes it feel different from the rest of the series. The tone feels different and calmer moments aren't ruined by needless pop songs.
    Just food for thought.

Still, this is just my personal opinion

    Simba's Pride is definitely the most tolerable sequel that was made. There were some pretty decent songs, especially the villain song. The new characters were somewhat enjoyable to watch as well. Some bits were extremely forced with the romance, but it expanded the world appropriately without becoming implausible.

    Honestly I liked the Little Mermaid sequel and prequel and the Lion king one. Lady and the Tramp 2 and Patches London Adventure were good too, I used to watch those all the time as a kid. The pochohantas one was kinda weird but pretty good. Brother Bear 2, Mulan 2, and Tarzan 2 were also pretty good, in my opinion. Bambi 2 was good, I liked it a lot. I liked Fox and the Hound 2 as a kid also. I loooooooved the Tinkerbell movies!

    In my opinion, I feel like Mulan 2 wouldn’t be half as bad if they hadn’t included all that shit about mushu. I watched Mulan 2 several months ago, and though objectively it is bad, I kinda liked it. I feel like what was dragging it down though was… Mushu. The plot about Mulan and Shang transporting the three princess and learning a lesson on independence & self discovery was fine imo, and hell- it probably could’ve worked so much better if Mushu wasn’t there to fuck shit up. The whole plot line about Mushu was so fucking stupid. I feel like the writers wanted to do the Mulan/Shang story but also wanted Mushu to have his own plot line/character arc but couldn’t do both so they tried to mash them together as if that would work (spoiler: it didn’t). If they had just kept the Mulan/Shang story it probably would’ve been a decent movie, but the whole “oh no I’m not gonna be a guardian anymore boo hoo” shit with Mushu really ruined the movie- and Mushu as a character- for me tbh. I really enjoyed the first Mulan, and I understand that people really liked Mushu in the first one, but I think he probably just should’ve sat this one out in the sequel (or at least had a smaller role). Just my opinion 😕

    Yep bear baiting was actually a thing during that time.If anything the Pocahontas 2 movie was doing it nicely. Poking it with sharp objects was just one way they did it.
    They set dogs on them, used the boiling oil, the Bulls to fight the bear, even went so far as to have them be branded an show them not fighting back to show how tough their bears were..
