Still trying to figure out all my ratings and all that stuff.
I’m amazed how well Regina King made this film to work as her first directorial (!!) debut. Each character got their moment to shine and develop throughout the whole thing. The four of them also had an incredible strong chemistry between each other which is definitely needed in a character-driven film like this to work as superb as it did. The ending just tied everything together perfectly and was the cherry on top.
MAYBE THE GREATEST SEQUEL EVER MADE.
Just saw this at the world premiere and my Swedish genes are litterally SHAKING.
Also, anyone who decides to rate this under 5 stars clearly hates ABBA and it will be considereded as a hate crime towards ME!
Also, Cher was a freaking legend and Meryl Streep litterally had me STREAMING with tears.
So when I heard “DJ KHALED” as soon as the credits started to roll I knew that my soul and spirit had officially left my body.
Disney’s 2D animation films are so rich of life, soul and heart. Maybe it is just nostalgia and childhood memories but some these remakes lack that joyful spirit. Somehow soulless. This Aladdin remake had a couple of moments and laughs but that’s it. Yeah I’ll stick with the brilliant 2D animation and memories of the OG.
