Ever since the test footage leaked, we’d been dying to see the "Merc with a Mouth" on the big screen. And boy, did he get quite the following.
Unlike my other entries thus far, Mowgli’s Brothers is a rather short film — a television animated special, to be exact. I first heard about it through the Nostalgia Critic when he mentioned it in his Disneycember review on Disney’s The Jungle Book. Naturally, I got curious. It’s supposed to be a pretty accurate adaptation of the original story by Rudyard Kipling; but to be honest, I haven’t read the book, so don’t expect any comparisons to be drawn in this review. With all that said, let’s begin.
This was my very first anime film, having seen it at four-years-old. To this day, after multiple viewings, it’s still my favourite – of Miyazaki’s films anyway, as I haven’t seen very many anime films by other animators.
I refuse to believe that this show didn’t have the popularity it needed to continue, because nearly everyone I know within my age range remembers and looks back fondly on the Teen Titans animated series.
I have re-watched all the episodes of this show several times, and knowing me, I’ll probably continue re-watching the series for the rest of my life.
I'm probably one of the only people on the planet that hasn't seen Frozen until this year. Disney was going through a weird phase where, up until Frozen, none of their movies were truly getting the same audience that, say, The Lion King did during their Renaissance. Early 2010, or maybe even earlier than that was when I started paying attention to Disney films less and less, so I didn't end up seeing many of them, especially after the snooze cruise that was Cars.
