    I don’t know why, but I like this movie. Sure the plot is thin, but I think it’s great for mindless entertainment. I am looking forward to the live action remake.

    Also not a canon movie, but Mickey’s Prince and the Pauper opens with a book.

    Something I find funny si that I grew up watching this movie in Spanish. And the nickname they have for Arthur is very different in Spanish. In Spanish they call him grillo that is cricket in English. When I found out they called in wart in the English version I was like whaaaat that’s sounds so gross. Hahaha
    Love the podcasts.

    The movie to me is just pure fun. The fact that the plot is thin never bothered me. The charcters were entertaining so were the action set pieces.

    The book is vastly different so you can’t really compare it much.

    “Song of the South” isn’t canon? Walt Disney personally worked on the film and one of the most popular rides in Disneyland is connected to it. It most definitely is canon.

    Actually, it was Woolie’s third son, Bruce, who voiced Mowgli.
