Very sad poor follow up to the classic
15 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This move is such a poor follow up to the classic by Rankin Bass. The look, voices and feel is so off in this movie it would have been much better if they made an independent Easter story. It does not explain the affiliation of the two Easter specials. It does not provide enough information for you to enjoy the return charters in full and the stories behind them, which only those who have seen the original classic could appreciate. Irontail is the only charter that is somewhat close to the original in looks but not at all in personality or voice. The feel of "holiday" and "Easter" is absent from the overall storytelling and art direction. The animation feels like a 2005 video game and the music sounds like any other modern Saturday morning cartoon, not at all appropriate for a holiday special. The talents of Christopher Lloyd and Roger Moore is clear but would have been much better in an original Easter story.
