DreamWorks Animation-Forgotten/Minor Characters #17: The Poachers

It’s no secret that I’m no fan of DreamWorks Animation’s 2005 film, Madagascar. But some people may not know that I’m also no fan of its 2008 sequel, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.

Kung Fu Panda was an instant success when it was released, both critically and financially. Its success led to it becoming a franchise spawning two sequels, a few shorts, and a couple of television series. It has always been one of my favorite DreamWorks Animation films and I’m glad to have gotten to it on this Forgotten/Minor Characters journey in time for its 10th anniversary!

2 Comments

The fourth animated film trailer of the week has debuted, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World!

The film looks to be just as good as its predecessors to me. I’m loving the Light Fury as well as F. Murray Abraham as the villain! Gotta wait till 2019 to see this though!

What do you think of the trailer?

We got our third animated film trailer for the week today, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

I, for one, am loving the art design and the overall Spider-Man story here! I feel this could be one of the best animated films in a while as well as one of the best Spider-Man films in a while!

Are you all excited about this film?

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming 2019 animated film, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, has debuted!

I’m looking forward to it having been a big fan of the first film! I would like to see more, but I’m happy with what we’ve seen so far.

Official ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2’ Trailer Debuts!

An official trailer for Disney’s upcoming Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 has debuted!

So what do I like about this trailer? Well, I’m loving how the animation is as good as its predecessor, the voicework seems to be the same, and that the Internet lends itself to numerous possibilities for a plot! Also, I LOVE Alan Tudyk’s KnowsMore character and how the filmmakers raised our concerns as to why the film isn’t titled Ralph Wrecks the Internet!

In terms of cons, I wish that the trailer gave us more of the plot. And although I do like the Princesses scene (like, mind you, not love), I am upset that “Belle” seems to suggest that she was kidnapped or enslaved. I know that they did this as a joke, but I feel Belle would be the first to tell you that was neither kidnapped nor enslaved and would be upset if you thought otherwise.

All in all, I’m hoping to like this film more than its predecessor, which I’m not really a fan of. Gotta wait till November 21, 2018 to find out!

The 2007 DreamWorks Animation film, Bee Movie, is one that is often derided, mocked, and made memes out of. Be it the fact that people find the plot of a bee lawsuit against humkind outrageous or the fact that Jerry Seinfeld voices a bee, many people don’t like this film all too much. I, on the other hand, have always enjoyed the film and still do. Yes, it’s nothing spectacular, but it definitely isn’t god-awful and it has some interesting themes in it, such as discussing cultural appropriation before cultural appropriation was even a thing!
