| Hugely enjoyable animated film, if a little contrived.
I enjoyed this film very much, so much so that it exceeded my expectations. The animation, compared to some of the Disney Direct to video sequels, is in general very good. I wasn't too keen on the character animation of the witch though. The voice talents from Jason Priestly, Tim Curry, Lynn Redgrave and Jane Horrocks, amongst others are also excellent. I do agree though all of them have been better, but they put a lot of enthusiasm into quite well-written roles. Tim Curry has done a number of voice overs and rarely disappoints, likewise with Dom DeLuise, though they have both been in one or two duds. The writing is quite witty, funny and intelligent, and the characters especially Lion and Wimsik are likable. However, there are one or two minuses. The first one is that I wasn't completely crazy about the songs. They weren't terrible, but they weren't outstanding either. Average is the best way to describe them. Same with the singing voices, especially Dom DeLuise, that song didn't really suit his voice. Another minus was the plot. It was clever and simple, but it a little contrived in the way it was put across. In conclusion, I was shocked at the low rating, for I found it a hugely enjoyable and charming film. Adults may find it a little contrived, but children will love it. 7/10 Bethany Cox
