I don't recall The Little Mermaid either.

I do remember a Jungle Book one, a Lion King one, a Tarzan one and lastly a Lilo and Stitch series!


The Little Mermaid series was in the early-mid 90s.

I love Robin Williams performances in Aladdin however I fully agreed with him not wanting to be the centre focus of that movies promotion and such!! In the end, it did change how Disney and Animation were cast and to be honest, I think I preferred the old way, the new unique voices and not "Oh that's Mandy Moore" "Oh that's Kristen Bell" and other such roles!!

Sort of ruined a lot of it for the people who make a living with their voices!!

I discovered the other day that when filming Aladdin the producers told Robin Williams to ignore the script and make up the lines himself as they thought he was funnier than the written material.
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

Oh yeah Robin Williams was at his best when he was improvising, the man was brilliant!!

I want to watch Aladdin again just to see the genie, I'm going to miss Robin Williams. It really hit when I watched Good Will Hunting a few days ago.

Saw the Jungle Book which I hadn't seen for ages. The art-work is impressive, sometimes falters when characters are moving but the backgrounds are beautiful. Has some nice songs (surprised the King of the Jungle one was so short), decent villains and voice-work, nice characters and a brilliant ending but wasn't too fond of the kid.

Saw the sequel to one of the great Disney movies, The Emperor's New Groove, called Kronk's New Groove about the henchman Kronk's (Patrick Warburton) new life. It is a little slow to get going but the film certainly tries, bringing back the old guard like Yzma (Eartha Kitt) and the Emperor Kuzco (David Spade) (I wish they hadn't brought back Kuzco given way they used him), adding new voices like Tracey Ullman and John Mahoney, adding songs which generally don't work and a few new ideas.

While it is nowhere near the greatness of the first film, Kronk's film is still warm and funny, providing plenty of chuckles, some sweetness and a good time. :D
