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!

Number 10

Ariel and Flounder at The Catfish Club The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning picture image

Ariel and Flounder

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.

Number 9

Ariel and Melody, The Little Mermaid II; Return to the Sea picture image

Ariel and Melody

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

Mowgli and Baloo Dancing The Jungle Book 2 picture image

Peter Pan and Jane

 

 

 

 

 

The Jungle Book 2Peter 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.

Number 7

Angel and Scamp, Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure

Angel and Scamp

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.

Number 6

Belle and the Beast Ice Skating, Beauty and the Beast; The Enchanted Christmas picture image

Belle and the Beast Ice Skating

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.

Number 5

Madeline and Quasimodo in Love Hunchback of Notre Dame II Disney Sequel 2 picture image

Madeline and Quasimodo Hunchback of Notre Dame II Disney

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.

Number 4

Tod and Copper The Fox and the Hound 2 picture image

Tod and Copper

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?

Number 3

Kronk and Miss Birdwell do the spaghetti scene from lady and the tramp Kronk’s New Groove picture image

Kronk and Miss Birdwell do the spaghetti scene from lady and the tramp

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.

Number 2

Belle and the Beast, Belle’s Magical World picture image

Belle and the Beast

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.

Number 1

Obby and Milo Atlantis; Milo's Return picture imahe

Obby and Milo

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.

Next time the Best or rather Comparatively the Top Ten Best Disney Sequels.

The Jungle Book 2 picture image

The Jungle Book 2

The Jungle Book 2 is a sequel to the 1967 The Jungle Book. I have no idea what to say about this one. I didn’t really like the original Jungle book movie for a lot of reasons and here are three. Number one, I hated Mowgli, talk about a dull character. Number two, Orangutans in India, No wrong. And Three, Colonel Hathi saying that female Elephants don’t lead herds, F.U.

But at least The Jungle Book was mildly entertaining. Mowgli could get away with being dull because he was the straight guy reacting to things. The Jungle Book 2 has Mowgli at the forefront so the movie is just all-a-round dull and Mowgli is more unlikable in this movie.

Mowgli and Baloo Dancing The Jungle Book 2 picture image

Mowgli and Baloo Dancing

In this movie Mowgli is living in the “Man-village” with his new pals, that pretty girl from the first movie, Shanti and Ranjan, an annoying little kid.

Mowgli misses the jungle and tries to lure the children into it with a crappy song. Going into the jungle is forbidden as you know there is a man-eating Tiger in there. So Shanti gets Mowgli in trouble and he gets grounded. Baloo, who misses his singing partner goes to the village to visit Mowgli with Shere Khan following. Shanti sees Baloo and yells, Baloo then runs off with Mowgli and the villagers run after Shere Khan. Shanti is followed by Ranjan take off after Mowgli.

Mowgli confesses that he hated the rules of the village. Other stuff happens and it ends with Shere Khan chasing Mowgli and Shanti and then getting trapped surround by lava under a statue listening to the bad jokes from a vulture.Clearly Shere Khan will die a painful long death.

And in the end Mowgli goes back to the “Man-Village.” Bagheera and Elephnats are also in this movie. But King Louie and the wolves that raise  Mowgli  are not. Seriously what the fuck Mowgli? You miss Baloo more than the wolves that took care you for like a decade. Hate you.

Mowgli, Shanti and Ranjan

Much like the Peter Pan sequel, they played it way too safe. It is exactly what you would expect from a sequel to The Jungle Book. Baloo sings Bare Nessacity, Bahgeera complains, and the  Elephants act British, The vultures are the Beatles and there is a new annoying new one that should have died. Shere Khan wants to kill Mowgli. Kaa is hungry. Mowgli whines and has a killjoy girlfriend.

Shere Khan and Kaa The Jungle Book 2 picture image

Shere Khan and Kaa

The only characters I liked is Shere Khan. Kaa was ok. Kaa just wants snacks and Shere Khan wants revenge. These are good motives. Plus Shere Khan is voice by Tony Jay who voiced Frollo. The little Elephant is ok too.

Mowgli on the other hand, he was dull in the first movie because he was a blank state character,  here he is just annoying. He wants to return to the jungle because rules are lame. He is like Scamp from Lady and the Tramp II. Then he misses the village. So kid doesn’t know what he wants. Shanti doesn’t really have much of personality, other than she doesn’t like the Jungle.

Baloo dancing with animals that  are not native to India The Jungle Book 2 picture image

Baloo dancing

The songs in this movie aside from the painful repeating of Bare Necessities are ass. They are pretty messy and really disharmonious. They were not pleasant to listen to.

Baloo, Shanti and Mowgli  The Jungle Book 2 picture image

Baloo, Shanti and Mowgli

Another issue is how can Shanti understand the animals? She has no problems talking to Baloo. This ability is never explain and I think the creators just didn’t think or care about a mechanic for Shanti to speaks to the animals. It’s treated as so whatever that one should scarily care about this plot hole.

 Shere KhanThe Jungle Book 2 picture image

Shere Khan

The Jungle Book 2 is really dull and very safe. You pretty much know what’s going to happen from the start. One good thing is Tony Jay’s voice but if you liked The Jungle Book and what more of it just watch TaleSpin and throw this one under a statue surrounded by molten lava, the world will thank you for it .
