1) Fantaghiro falls in love and unites three war-torn kingdoms 2) Fantaghiro fights an evil sorceress 3) The evil sorceress becomes a sidekick and Fantaghiro fights an evil sorcerer and now: 4) The evil sorceress remains a sidekick and the evil sorcerer becomes another sidekick to fight an even more evil sorcerer, who is (drumroll!) the father of the previous evil sorcerer! Seriously, those father-son things have been overdone in the movies....
Do I see a trend developping? Do all previous bad guys have to become sidekicks in sequels? Oh well. Part 3 was still bearable, with the old "Evil guys stealing all children" plot eerily reminiscent of "Willow", but this one is just stupid. And full of sappy attempts to tear at 10 year old girl's hearts, with love interests being turned into ugly goblins etc.
