We sometimes lament the fact that we’ll never know what happens to our favorite Disney characters after “happily ever after.” Sure, we can assume that they live happily, but how exactly? What little moments of their day-to-day lives are we missing out on? We’ve come to love them, to think of them as our friends, to feel a certain kinship towards them. We need to know. Enter the Disney movie sequel. Today we’re talking about our personal favorites, join us, won’t you?
“The ‘learning to be brave’ sequence is one of the cutest animation moments ever.” – Emily K.
The Rescuers Down Under
“I love the dusty, hardscrabble look of the outback, George C. Scott’s amazing vocal performance as poacher McLeach, the rapport of Bob Newhart and Eva Gabor, and the fact that, after seeing the movie (at the Crossroads Mall movie theater in San Antonio, Texas), I was convinced that giant golden eagles actually existed. Fun aside: the film ended up being a technological breakthrough, as well: it was the first Disney animated film to be colored and composited exclusively with the computerized CAPS system.” – Drew
Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea
“Melody is awesome and awkward like I was as a child, and I loved the song she sings when she turns into a mermaid.” – Nicole
The Lion King 1 1/2
“I love it because it breaks the fourth wall constantly and is super funny.” – Ryan
The Return of Jafar
“I got to buy it at the grocery store on the way to Palm Springs and I knew then and there that I was the luckiest kid in the world.” – Shelby
An Extremely Goofy Movie
“Despite giving me unrealistic expectations for college, it’s so self-aware and over the top that watching it is consistently An Extremely Fun Time. Plus, Goofy reminds me of my own dad, so whenever he’s sad I cry uncontrollably, and sometimes crying uncontrollably at an animated sequel is just what my week needs.” – Emily O.
High School Musical 2
“Four words: Zac Efron dance breaks.” – Chelsea
Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World
“I love that it takes place in London (my favorite place), is somewhat historically accurate, and John Rolfe is one seriously attractive cartoon.” – Rachel
Zenon: The Zequel
“Proto Zoa’s return to our lives was a really big deal.” – Emily B.
The Emperor’s New Groove 2: Kronk’s New Groove
“More Kronk is never a bad thing.” – Liz
Planes: Fire and Rescue
“I love how filmmakers weaved in aspects of America’s national parks into the production design and story along with a tribute to the men and women who keep our country safe from wildfires. Also, Julie Bowen.” – Colin
