With the Non-Disney Princess Movies done I thought before jumping into the next set of movies that we would take this month to revisit the previously reviewed movies and I would give my take on the best and worst Disney Sequels and Non-Disney Princess Movies and then I will say what the next bunch of movies will be.
So let’s start with the WORST Disney Sequels. And Just a note I’m not including the Pooh movies or shorts, which there was one only but still.
So here they are the Worst of Disney’s crap!
The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning – Sure the animation was better than most but the movie lacked focused. We were promised Ariel’s beginning and we get Sebastian’s. Other than that the movie is just clumsy but at least it’s a different story. Really this makes the list for it’s lack of focus and false title.
Little Mermaid II; Return to the Sea – This one was just a lukewarm rehash of the original Little Mermaid and was lazy to boot but I would rather watch this than most sequels if not because I didn’t hate when I FIRST saw it and if they were just going to copy a movie I can think of worse movie to rehash than the Little Mermaid but it’s still bad.
Number 8 IT’s A TIE
The Jungle Book 2 & Peter Pan 2: Return to Neverland – I really couldn’t decide between these two. Both have the same issues, they are dull, safe and annoying plus they were somehow deemed good enough for theaters, What? These movies both suck. At least Shere Khan is awesome.
Lady and the Tramp II; Scamp’s Adventure – Speaking of rehashing, however unlike the Little Mermaid this movie doesn’t get the style right plus the characters are annoying as shit. Puppies couldn’t help this movie and that is just so tragic.
Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas – What can you say about this one? Beast is a Scroogey-grinch, a Jewish Axe, for I dunno why and evil emo Tim Curry organ, this should have been AMAZING with such core story components but alas this was just weak as Zima.
The Hunchback Of Notre Dame II – Now technically I didn’t review this for the Sequel series as I had already looked at it in length because it’s Hunchback but it’s still sucks. Quasimodo tricks a girl with low self-esteem to like him when he see nothing really beyond her looks. I suppose he liked her a bit for seeing the gargoyles but as we see in the original the gargoyles can pick and choice who they interact with like Hugo with Djali and the whole they fight against the soldiers. But coupled with the dumb plot, the songs and animation it’s just awful but I would rather watch it than the rest of the movies on the list and that how it only ranked fifth.
The Fox and the Hound 2 – First off, Midquels are just yucky by nature, second, they joined a freaking band. So dumb, there is nothing in this of substances or entertainment. And again a puppy and a baby fox couldn’t save it. Disney what is wrong with you?
Kronk’s New Groove – This movie, this movie made want to drink bleach to forget it. I really do believe I’m stupider for having watch it. This movie should have been fun but it was just movie reference after movie reference till you break down and weep from the lack of creativity. This one is just an over-all Disappointing.
Belle’s Magical World – Groans, this was yet another Midquel but it wasn’t just any Midquel it was the first Midquel. As a Midquel is just took a shit on the first one since when would have the events had happened? Beast starts acting nice to Belle on first night at the castle when she thanked him from saving her life from the wolves. This movie is dumb and muddles the original.
Atlantis: Milo’s Return – OMFG this was literally painful to watch. I hated every single second of this minus the Lava Dog thing. This one is just a lifeless turd. There is nothing interesting or memorable about this movie. My brain is hurting just having to think about it again, Oh, the pain is too much.

OMG I HATE THE LITTLE MERMAID 2!!!!! The idea of Ariel’s personality just makes me screech! Plus, WHY, DISNEY, WOULD YOU CHANGE FLOUNDER FROM HIS ORIGINAL MOVIE ADORABLENESS!!!!!!????????!!!!!!!! Melody stinks, I never liked the idea of Scuttle being a minority, Morgana sucks, and the whole layout was terrible! I nearly cried in disgust watching it for the first time. I’m sorry, people who like this movie, but this is just my opinion and my opinion is perfectly clear!!!
Ha! Good list! I have always hated Hunchback 2! I have a recommendation, could you do a hypothetical casting of Samantha Barks as Esmeralda? Don’t you think she would be great? She is a good actress and she is beautiful! She has the dark hair and eyes and she has good look of innocence don’t you think so?
I agree with you Samantha Barks would makes a fantastic Esmeralda. In fact I’m pretty sure she is on my master hypothetical casting list, I just haven’t gotten around to writing a post for her yet.
Sounds good, take all the time you need. You have good taste for hypothetical casting!
It’s a pity she is tall, but it doesn’t matter for me! She is perfect for Esmeralda, beautiful, innocent and her voice! Oh, I love the sound of her voice, so strong, so emotional! Even if it wasn’t for a musical HOND I’d love her as Esme. I didn’t knew the name of the actress, but when I first saw he in Les Mis I thought “She needs to be Esmeralda”. Thank you Skylar for letting me know the name of this lovely actress! She can pull the looks of a 16 years old girl for sure. Oh, Jess, I can’t wait to see your post about her, even her clothes in Les Mis remember those of a Medieval Gypsy! ;-)
P.S Her waist is perfect!
Love from Grace, Ireland
You are so welcome! I know, isn’t she perfect? She is so beautiful! But anyway, I like it when I can help people figure out stuff!
