    If I could bring any direct to video film to the big screen it would be (The Search For Christopher Robin). And If I could make it on a bigger budget I would make the animation more cinematic even though I haft to say that it has aged well on Blu-ray with it’s cel animation.

  • Chelsea Warner

    I would have been okay with Bambi II being on the big screen. It had theatrical level animation.

    • Sebastian

      Fun fact. Bambi ll was actually shown on the big screen in some European countries around 2006.

  • I’m with you ladies; don’t think any of the sequels are worth fixing up and bringing to the big screen (except “King of Thieves”). Yet hands down I would have been compelled to watch Morgan’s version of “Jungle Book 2” where the kids have to find their way home, and maybe include something of a treasure hunt because that’s a chapter in the novel.

    I was so excited to hear Chelsea read the Kipling book! A family relative made a comment to me, “I don’t think it’s for little kids” because yes, the protagonist is Mowgli, but it is a book with dark and intense moments. Bagheera’s backstory of being forced to entertain humans means he has experience and wisdom; he is aware of how cruel or compassionate people can be and I think that’s why he is protective of Mowgli because he knows this boy has the capacity to take down Shere Khan. In the book Mowgli has his bratty moments but he’s mostly cheeky and cunning.
