Slightly inferior to the first
10 September 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Panda Kopanda Rainy Day Circus" is the sequel to "Panda kopanda" from one year earlier, so this one here is also over 40 years old. It is 2 or 3 minutes longer then the original and also directed by Isao Takahata and written by Hayao Miyazaki, Japanese filmmaking legends. In this one here, the trio (young Misty lookalike girl, a little panda, a big panda) not only meet the animals of the circus, but even save them. A wild train chase ensues. They become friends with a tiger cub and its mother and there is a cute little cub exchange scene, possibly the highlight of the movie. I must say I enjoyed the first one slightly more, but this one here still makes for a good watch. The difference is minimal only. I would suggest this one to you, but I guess, instead go watch the first and if you are child enough inside to enjoy that one, also check out this sequel here. Both are fairly entertaining animation films and together they run even shorter than a full feature movie.
