Trivia

Don Bluth and his animators were originally chosen to be involved with the sequel as early as 1995. However, due to scheduling conflicts with Anastasia (1997), MGM opted to have its in-house animation crew take care of the project. See more »

Cinematic Misery
2 February 1999 | by (Palo Alto, California) – See all my reviews



I knew this movie was going to be bad since before production started. Release day finally came. After a month or so of procrastination, I rented it. And I survived. This so-called sequel to The Secret Of NIMH is nowhere near the creepy-yet-cute level of the original. Instead, it looks more like a bad Rescue Rangers episode. The songs not only shouldn't be there, but they're awful. There's nothing new in the plot-it's pure formula-absolutely pure! It's childish, badly written, and the producers tried to compensate for the faults by encasing the thing with gloss. Didn't work.
