"Somehow I'll make a man, out of you..."
As a fan of the Disney sing along songs, I enjoyed Honor to Us All. Mulan is not one of my favourite Disney films, but I do like it a lot for its beautiful animation and strong heroine. Plus I do like some of the songs, of which Honor to Us All and I'll Make a Man Out of You are featured and both songs fit the theme of the video very well. I have to say though, my favourite song from Mulan is Reflection. Zero to Hero and I Won't Say I'm in Love are also here, and I have to say while I have never personally been the biggest fan of Hercules' music as I do feel the style of music doesn't exactly fit with the setting I liked the use of both songs here. Guy Like You has always been my least favourite of the (great) songs from the underrated Hunchback of Notre Dame due to placement, but I didn't mind it here. There are some classics here however, A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes and The Siamese Cat Song, and On the Open Road is so catchy. Also there are some songs from the direct to video sequels, don't worry they're the good ones not the uninspired ones of Cinderella 2 or the forgettable ones of Jungle Book 2 or Return to Neverland. The only one that I wasn't crazy about was A Little Thought, and while Where Do I Go From Here is one of the better songs on the tape, We are One and Father and Son relate to the theme of the video much better. As to be expected the animation mostly is crisp and colourful and the music is wonderful and easy to sing along to with A Dream Is a Wish... and On the Open Road the most accessible singing-wise. Overall, another good entry. 8/10 Bethany Cox
