    'The movie follows a teenage lion from the New York Zoo who gets accidentally shipped to Africa and freed. His friends at the zoo including an older lion, a giraffe, an anaconda, and a squirrel must unite to bring him back.'

    Ummmm... Madagascar?

    Well Madagascar and Finding Nemo. What imagination, it's a major leap to combine two movies to make one.[​IMG]

    I thought Madagascar was pretty bad, but this sounds even worse.

    Scary part is most people can't tell Pixar from the CGI dreamworks and disney movies...

    I think it's painfully obvious to tell them apart...

    This sounds absolutely ridiculous. I guess we can also expect an all star cast pumping the budget of VOICE actors up to 20-30 million a piece.

    Actually, I have friends of mine (who usually have good taste in movies) who actually like Madagascar. I haven't seen it yet, but I did see the Penguins short in front of W&G. I assume those are the characters people lean to, rather than the main characters?

    I saw the trailer for this in front of "The Producers". Can't say I was impressed.

    Disney must suspect that this doesn't sound too great. They're releasing it in April, which I can't recall as a release month for any major cartoon in recent history (could be wrong).

    For all of the griping back in the 1990s about the formulaic nature of Disney's cartoons, the animated films made now by anyone except Pixar are in much more of a rut.

    There are two kinds of formulas: Those that work, and those that don't.

    Thank goodness for Pixar. Disney and Dreamworks Animation continue to jump safely onto the "hip talking animals" bandwagon. Got to say I'm growing extremely tired of those hip talking animals...
