    I really hate to admit this, but Cindrella II: dReAmS cOmE tRuE is actually a guilty pleasure of mine. I would use the whole I saw it as a kid nostalgia glasses excuse, but even as an adult I can clearly see why most people hate it and I still can't bring myself to hate it. Hell I found the original Cindrella boring in comparison. There must be something defective with my brain. And heariing the Critic rip it to utter shreds just made my self esteem points drop even lower. This is why I keep my VHS copy hidden in a 10 digit combination locked safe that explodes if you try to open it with the wrong code.

    I liked the Lion King 2, An Extremely Goofy Movie, Lady and the Tramp 2, Bambi 2, 101 Dalmatians 2, and The Fox and the Hound 2.

    I haven't seen any of the other sequels except the Hunchback of Notre Dame 2 and that movie can burn in hell with Frollo. Horrible animation. Horrible songs. Horrible villain. Horrible story. Complete disgrace to the original which was fantastic, my favorite Disney movie, and totally underrated.

    I like to think that the Atlantis series would've been Disney's take on Lovecraft. Too bad we'll never know. By the way there's even rumored to be a live-action remake of Atlantis in the works. Can't we just get a show of it on Disney+?

    Direct to video sequels was a part of my childhood either watching them on tv (on Disney channel) or on DVD, years later I have to say they do not hold up to their original material.

    YOBA MUST DIE! Day ago

    As for Belle world - yeah its leftover of canceled TV series that supposed to be kidna what happened off screen, and mostl likely it was canceled because they didn't manage to make a lot of episodes to tie into middle of the movie as offscreen materials, and yeah episodes was not very good, so more episodes was not shot and what was was released as those mini stories.

    YOBA MUST DIE! Day ago

    Wow, alladin TV show actually had a final episode as 3rd movie? I never ever heard it existed, never saw it in TV that showed TV series from fists to last episodes, and never saw vhs of it, i didn't ever saw wiki mentioning it. Is this another Mandela effect and I'm from time and space wher Disney never finished TV series and it was over suddenly, or advertising was so bad that most of people never was aware of its existence? Damn, it's actually looking good, yeah not as big budget as original movie, but definitely better than series and 1st sequel, which i both loved as kid even despite i noticed some downgrade in quality, which, however was compensated NG quantity of episodes. I loved this TV series so much i never missed a episode, got then all recorded from TV on vhs, Disney shows hours on TV was best at that time (darkwing duck, duck tales, bears whatever they was called, weird something about cop, chip and Dale rr, Guffy kid show, alladin, Winnie the pooh, Timon and pumba, mermaid and few else i don't remember - was really good) of my childhood. Damn i want to rewatch all Aladdin episodes now and finally see this final episode.

    This is really weird, but I don't like the animation of most Disney sequels. They look... more rushed I suppose? They don't look as good as the first movie.

    What Fox and the Hound 2 should have been: Tod has little fox babies and Copper has puppies, one of the foxes and one of the pups become friends and it's pretty much just a rehash of the first movie bit with the added fathers are old friends aspect. Would have been better than what we got.

    I would have loved to hear your thoughts on the other Tinker Bell movies, since there is one that I personally put on when I'm in a sour mood to cool of, the one about the snow fairies. I often felt the same way about movies as you did and It was interesting to hear about movies I didn't even know existed.

    There are a lot of people who hate Mulan II. But even those who do have said that they actually like the relationship between the guards and the princesses, even though that complicates the mission. They say that Mulan is the person who ruins the story, but the interactions between the princesses and the guards is executed in a very natural way. Even if it doesn't save the movie, it should still be noted.

    The Lion King 2, the animation was pretty good, the songs were good and the story line was good. I don't see anything wrong with that one. And besides, Kovu was pretty fucking hot. Yeah, I know he's just a cartoon, but I did have a little crush on him. Same thing with Scar, yeah he was the bad guy but I did like him. I was a kid though, so give me a break. Great movie though, I really enjoyed it. It's funny though because I came across the sequel completely by mistake. I went to the library looking for the original Lion King because my VHS of it broke but yeah, they didn't have the original Lion King but they had the sequel so I got that out because I never saw that one before and I was so excited to find out that they made a sequel to the original. Anyway, I got it out, watched it and thought it was great and I fell in love with the songs especially We are one and He lives in you. Those songs were really good and they immediately got stuck in my head.

    The Lion King 2 Simba's Pride and The Little Mermaid 2 Back to the Sea in my opinion, are the best Disney direct to DVD sequels. But yeah, I definitely agree, almost all of them really do suck.

    I was a 2000’s kid, so I had to deal with a lot of these in my childhood. I didn’t even realise that all or most of them were never in theaters, nor did I notice the lower animation quality. I was not a very smart kid.
    That’s not to say that I liked them, though. I just didn’t realize that they weren’t on par with the originals, as I already found most of the originals to be just okay at best.
    Now that I’m an adult and have a better attention span, I’m going to go back and watch some of the older movies whenever I can.

    That Aladdin movie puzzled me when I was a kid. Why is Aladdin still stealing from the market if he is married to the freaking princess. Did she kick him out the palace or something? In the first movie, he was a street rat, so it made sense he would steal to survive. In the second movie, he is married to the princess and living in the palace, so why the hell was he still stealing from the market? It made no sense.

    Am I the only one who really liked Extremely Goofy Movie? And come on, that soundtrack.

    Generally, the problem I notice with these sequels is that they are trying to cater more to young children, while the originals generally just try for a good story. And that creates a huge difference in quality.

  • Hannah Shribman-Brown

    I wonder if my version of the Hunchback sequel (which would actually be a prequel and would explain why the gargoyles talk to Quasimodo) would be able to do better. Like, have a nine-year-old Quasimodo being daring enough to sneak out and make friends with some kid who doesn't judge him. Hey, it gives them an excuse to bring Frollo back. Of course, something happens and Quasimodo never gets to see his friend again by the end, but then the gargoyles suddenly start talking to him. Isolation madness implication for the adults, happy ending for the kids. It's not a good story, but could it top the story we got?

    I remember watching Lion King 2 shortly after my mom passed away (almost 14 years ago now) and the song "we are one" made me cry. It made me remember that my mom was still alive, in me. I really needed that back then. I was only 15 (my mom was 32). In a way that reignited my love for disney in my teen years. I also Cried for Koda in brother bear when kenai was telling him he killed Kodas mom.

    IrishSkyeOMalley Month ago

    Yes, bear-baiting (as it was called) was an English "entertainment" back then. It involved chaining a bear down, typically by one leg or by the neck, and other animals were set on the bear to fight it (usually they used English bulldogs...a breed of dog that got their name because they were in bull-baiting, which is the same as what was done to the bears). Bear baiting was still a sport at the time Pocahontas was living in London; it was not until 1835 that baiting was prohibited by Parliament.
    One of the few things that this film got right historically is that the people of London did not shun Pocahontas (who was, by that time, married to John Rolfe [it's still debated how much say she had in that arrangement] and was introduced to London society as Rebecca Rolfe) and they treated her as something of a celebrity because the Virginia Company wanted to show people that they could "convert Indians to Christianity" and the company saw an opportunity to promote further investment with the conversion of Pocahontas and her marriage to Rolfe. Ofc, like Disney's first version of Pocahontas, they left out a lot of the "messy" details like the fact that Pocahontas was captured at the age of 17 by English settlers and held captive for a year, during which time she (supposedly) became a Christian, was baptised "Rebecca" and married Rolfe a year later. She also died at the age of 21, most likely from some illness contracted in London.
    But hey, those kinds of facts get in the way of telling good stories...and mediocre ones, like this film.

    Addressing the bear in the Pocahontas 2 movie yeah, a popular method of entertainment for the 'more civilised' English people was 'baiting', which involved tying up an animal, (usually a bear or a bull) to a large stone in the centre of the town and having dogs maul the animal to death. We still have a lot of the stones left up and forgotten in the town centres, and that's also why bulldog breeds were bred, to tear powerful animals apart for people's entertainment. Thank Gods we have movies and games instead now...
