Why? Why? Why?
Is nothing sacred??? Is there no originality?
I saw some of this “sequel.” I was hoping for some sophisticated character development since last we met our heroes. You know, Mowgli with grandchildren who are embracing the new modern world. Then there’s the horrible logging company threatening to strip burn the forest while a grandfatherly Baloo lays on his deathbed chanting “damn them! Damn them all to hell!”
But no. Painful flimsy plot. Mowgli has not even grown an inch. They didn’t even have the dignity to find a voice similar to the original Baloo(what happened to the guy that did Tailspin??). It’s John GOODMAN. And they resurrect the old original musical numbers in their ENTIRETY.
sniff Damn you Eisner.
