Nice Artwork, But Missing the Spirit of the Original
8 June 2013 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

I grew up on old "Kimba the White Lion" cartoons and with that said I had to take a peek at the "New Adventures". Now with any remake, things can go either way. In the case of this one...while the artwork is indeed very well done, something is truly missing...mainly the heart, spirit, and like-ability of the original series. That and the voice work seems hopelessly off compared to the original. In the 1966 series Billy Lou Watt worked wonders with her voice as she made Kimba come to life as a friendly, light-hearted, yet responsible and sensible young leader. The new series' Kimba is voiced by an adult who's voice seems too old, and the Lion himself too serious, angry, and yet oddly clumsy...too far a departure from what viewers have known and loved. For newer audiences, this could make such wonderful characters be seen as "run of the mill" or just not someone they could relate to. This could be due to the fact that the new version is more "true" to the original manga series from Japan...but for fans who knew and loved the Americanized version, this approach kind of misses. The "New Adventures" is great for anime fans or Kimba purists, but fans who loved the 1966 U.S. series could be disappointed.
