I am embarrassed to admit this was one of my favorites as a kid. I mainly enjoyed it for the relationship between the King and Anna, and I always thought they were a great couple and should have married. Now watching it, the people who made this film should have just not bothered.
This 1999 version of The King and I is abominable on almost every level. The animation is pretty good, but that's it. Several elements are borderline racist (some of this comes from the source material, but they added their own little doses of problematic elements too). There are downright stupid story choices (turning the villain into a goody wizard) and the way they watered down the dark elements of the story is truly silly. The less said about those awful animal sidekicks the better.
It tries so hard to compete with the Disney films of the time without possessing any respect for the audience. A waste of time; do not inflict this on yourself or your children.
