I really don’t have much to say about this live action remake of the 1991 animated film, other than “why?” This film is essentially exactly like that one. The story is the same, the characters are the same, the songs are the same, the tone is the same. It is even visually the same, which is an impressive feat, given that the previous film was animated. But, that doesn’t really seem like reason enough to remake it. While I found it very pretty to look at, it added nothing to the original and suffered from the same lack of character depth that plagued most Disney films from the period. In many ways, while this felt like a visual step forward, it felt like a step back in most other ways. It was mildly entertaining but little more than that. There are really so many better children’s movies out there. Go see one of those instead.
