Ah, I always liked how bumbling and pathetic Prince John and Sir Hiss were. It made them a delight to watch, even if they weren't threats in any real way. But they did always provide some good action scenes at least.

Hades is a good example of a comedic Disney villain who still managed to seem dangerous, but John and the Sheriff were about as threatening as Team Rocket.


Team. Rocket. Is. The. Best. Ever. Heresy! :lol:

John: Prepare for trouble!
Hiss: Make it double!
John: To protect the world from devastation;
Hiss: To unite all people within our nation;
John: To denounce the evils of truth and love;
Hiss: To extend our reach to the Scots above -
John: Prince John!
Hiss: Sir Hiss!
John: England will blast off at the speed of light!
Hiss: Surrender now or prepare to fight!

I love Team Rocket so much. Get rid of Team Plasma or whatever. Jesse and James are anime icons. :D

I'm not disagreeing on how great Team Rocket is. I just used them as a comparison for how scary Prince John was.

I haven't seen the show in years, but I keep up with developments and the trio are still around.

So, anyone have thoughts on the live-action Mulan remake apparently being worked on?

I'm more interested in the apparent Live Action Winnie the Pooh. I'm not sure how I feel about that. What's wrong with hand drawn? The last film they made of it was excellent.

I suspect Prince John's mother would have made a great villain given the clear pschyoligcal effect she has :wink: Yeah, he is fun but not scary

Feels like Disney is starting to live action anything they can get their hands on. Not a bad idea per-se, a way of giving the classics a new look, but does seem weird for Winnie the Pooh.

Indeed. Jungle Book I can understand. And Paddington too. But Winnie the Pooh? Just feels like it should naturally be drawn.

Oh, and I just found out they're making a Frozen 2.

Shocking. That movie was such a flop, I thought for sure that would be it.

Otherwise we would be hearing the song on the radio, or seeing Frozen merchandise in stores, or having kids dress up like Anna or Else or something.

Has anyone heard who is going to play Mulan in this? I heard a scary rumour that it was a famous Caucasian white actress whose name has now slipped my mind but I can find no reference to this online and so was wondering if it was just scaremongering?

I heard quite a few wanted the woman from Shield, otherwise heard nada. It would be disturbing if they can't find an Asian woman for a story about an Asian woman
