Another brainchild of Disney "the jungle Book 2" was the typically pretty, typically the good, typically children and same typical colorful cartoon like and other well-known products of this famous and familiar with childhood Studio.

Itself cartoon Casey Cooper came quite by accident — just flipped channels and at one point came across a headband with the inscription "the jungle Book 2". All of us way or otherwise familiar with the original story of little Mowgli — the boy, who was taken in a pack of wolves, raised Balu and Bagira and which almost lunch the tiger Sher Khan. About this story is written in the book, there are a few cartoons from different years, different lengths and from different studios. But that there are continuation, which tells the story of the same place when Mowgli went to the village in village of the human tribe I personally don't know the.

And in principle, the project came out decent, he brings out childhood memories — enough only a couple of times to see screen: colorful drawing in the good old style, a couple of songs of the main characters on the familiar melody, a few funny episodes, old friends Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo, Kaa and Shere Khan, and the new faces of two young inhabitants of the village. New evil plans Sherkhan and the new adventures of Mowgli and his friends (old and new) at this reason.

Result: all what you need, all we expect to Disney children's animated feature, all should be such a project, some of the original some new — it all it is.

At one time all animated sequels of the famous classic hits from Disney, came out almost any annually. In basically, these cartoons were so mediocre and unpretentious that most of them appeared at once on video, but when this in some countries (including the Russia) cartoons came on the big screens and collected a lot of money. These were sequels of the paintings of the Golden, if not platinum collection study, and here in the first place people from the audience just by name. Now, too, occasionally experience the same releases, but still much less, because currently the Disney company is better to invest in something original and profitable than to cut nonessential coupons hand-drawn sequels, which, as shown, moreover, that even the scanty't work the same fascinating as the originals so still undermined the credibility of the once most popular animation Studio in the world. Exceptions of course there are, for example, the new "Winnie the Pooh and his friends", which even in States came out on the big screen, but the disastrous box-office takings more confirmed that these exceptions, in our time, solely incompetent for the content of these cartoons have to taste well, very young children and not a priori involves a fascinating view for their parents.

By the way, I nothing have against such sequels, because very small children, yet not able to feel beauty and touching the same "Wall-e" than its bright animation, surely these animated creations very easily have on perception. But still a bit annoying that the authors to these cartoons fit awfully judgmental and indifferent. Take for example the culprit of this review "the jungle Book 2", — in its idea, the tape is very interesting. She has its credit colorful animation, funny characters and even a plot conflict that implies something exciting and spectacular. And that up — the picture is not even up to standard duration, and all ideas fly away in the nether because of the incredibly childish approach makers to realize their creations. Beautiful pictures a little, and children should not only cheerful songs to entertain, but and gently introduce a more subtle and interesting moments. After the final events of the last part, passed on to people mischievous Mowgli with all my heart misses my friends of the jungle on previous adventures. And in the jungle time about him less severely misses it devoted friend Balu. And once the Ball is in the village and takes a boy with a and their the trail goes friend Mowgli, Shanti and her little brother. The villain Sher Khan, too, is not sleep is looking for the right moment to take revenge on the nimble boy.

As you can see, invented the story rather has to give a truly exciting and adventure action. Then if authors have enough imagination, then if the budget of the cartoon was very limited, but the fact remains — all the interesting moments associated with the conflict of the characters are insanely simplified, and adventurous so low that simply amazed from the insolvency of the Director's imagination. The only more or less dynamic and exciting scene in picture — this is the final battle of the heroes by Sherkhan, yeah and it awfully lazy thought — impression that the authors simply don't soared, and abandoned there are all sorts of the story delights Recalling that supposedly little babies and it will be enough. The first "the jungle Book", by the way, not too different in depth, and also looks a bit childish, but unlike the sequel, the spirit of adventure the original tape is expressed definitely brighter and friend — creative. The old cartoon, too, focused solely on a very small audience, but it looks more holistic and thoughtful. Yeah and time has demonstrated that the animated picture of 1967, the year many remember and honored to now and here "the jungle Book 2" was forgotten immediately after premiere about it says a lot...

The merits of this animated sequel too much. For example, some of the characters, especially Mowgli and Baloo, rather pleased with her cheerfulness and fun. Hand-drawn images if took over the character and charisma to voice their actors Haley Joel Osment, the younger and John Goodman, and literally sparked to life emotions and feelings. Duet I really turned out very bright and memorable — their dialogues were full of touching, and most importantly a good sense of humor, and songs — fervently and positive. But here but the main villain Sher Khan, almost completely lost its gloomy become and gravity. Quite possibly, the authors do not meant to frighten kids, — but then why such a whimsical personality sometimes needed to put a clown — is clumsy Kaa, Baloo and playful forever kamikawa Ptah, was not enough? All the most successful songs came from the original of the new remember only the "Rhythm of the jungle" — very nice and colorful composition. Animation — beautiful! Nicely drawn locations of Indian villages, incredible colorful surroundings of the jungle with picturesque backgrounds, the atmosphere of the ancient stone buildings — all really looks nice and attractive. Yeah and the characters are drawn very cute and bright that allows moments refers to them as living characters.

P. S. This cartoon is more like the next series of the TV cartoon series than a feature-length animated creation, for wide format still suggests a more meaningful action and a fascinating story. Although children will surely enjoy, and it's possible they remain love friends happily dancing under the fun and the fiery rhythm of the jungle. And as for the adults — you know, the nostalgia thing is very thin, and under a special mood, "the jungle Book 2" may seem very familiar, native and very happy.

In 1967, from Studio "Disney" comes out of another creation, which is not is not noticed. And it is a creation or more "the Jungle Book". The best adaptation of the adventures of a little boy Mowgli, raised by wolves, educated by the bear Baloo and learned all sorts of tricks for the leadership of the Panther Bagheera. In 2003, it is unknown for what comes the continuation Mowgli under the name "the Jungle Book-2". It is the further adventures of boy-savage already in the circle of people that it sheltered.

My opinion that not worth it to continue the story of Mowgli, which completely put bold point of "the jungle Book". Suddenly, out of nowhere appears again the villain Sher Khan, and, if the first part, he was more or less a decent tiger, so in the second he already bloodthirsty tyrant, thirsting for the blood of Mowgli. The ball also has some really a merry fellow too, who lives in General no worries where eating out there and she's gone stupid and is depicted as something ugly and announced the same way. Bagira — the only normal character who was transported in the same what was in the first part, he same a mischievous, smart and clever animal. He Mowgli did not changed, perhaps, he had as something that may grow a little more, then he on the contrary remained the same new and a curious boy.

In General "Jungle Book 2" is disappointed and not pleased, songs and dances here was nothing to the point, the voice acting of the characters was too disgusting, fake squeals, screams, giggles. The bright colors really gets in eyes annoying new characters, some empty.
