The Lion King 1½ Review: It exists.

Just in case you forgot, this movie started a trend of forced memes. The horror, The horror! OVERALL MOVIE: 3/10 I prefer Mystery Science Theater or Rifftrax better.

Best Disney sequel?

It seems like most people agree that this is the best direct to video Disney sequel ever made! Granted, that's not quite saying that much, but it's still something. This was loosely based on "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead" which was appropriate for Shakespeare Month. The opening song with the meerkats is probably the best in the movie. I'm going to have to mention the show "Timon & Pumbaa" which was a completely wacky spin off with these two characters. I doubt it's canon, seeing as how it was just a goofy cartoon that didn't really mean anything.

Timon and Pumbaa really are quite funny in this movie. Despite the title, it doesn't take place between the original and "The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride". The entire movie is actually being watched in a theater by Timon and Pumbaa, kind of like "Mystery Science Theater 3000". I'm not going to spoil the ending, but it's really one of the funniest you could ever ask for in a movie like this. The animation here is quite impressive. I guess I can thank Disney for giving us at least one solid decent video sequel. ***

A film made with one purpose: the box office.

This film is a spin-of of "Lion King", focused on the characters of Timon and Pumbaa. Directed by Bradley Raymond, with a script by Tom Rogers, the film features the voices of Nathan Lane, Ernie Sabella, Whoopi Goldberg and Julie Kavner.

When I saw this movie by its cover I thought it would, of course, a continuation of the second film. When I realized it was a spin-of based on friends of Simba, I was a bit disappointed. When I realized it was a bad movie, I was really upset. The director tried to evade the rules and do something that rarely occurs in animated films: a spin-of that elapses before the initial movie events. Its a high- risk maneuver and Raymond was unable to give it the original magic, of the first film. They cannot even be compared.

This film is the following of a policy that Disney has tried to do in recent years: pick up a highly popular secondary character, from a movie that already exists (highly lucrative, of course) and give this character a whole film through a spin-of. This is just to make money at the expense of a success already achieved. Many of these films get similar popularity but much lower quality. So it is here.

The script is not interesting, the story is quite boring. This pair of friends, who once entertained us, didn't bring anything new. The voice actors did a good job, but its one of the few pristine features of the film, along with the design, animation and cinematography. It has some moments of humor but it's not funny, and the jokes didn't stay in in our memory. Basically, Disney should learn to understand that there are characters that were made to be funny and secondary, never to be protagonists.
