What can be worse than an inferior sequel? A sequel that acknowledges it can't be better than the original
14 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Look, this is probably not very objective of me, but I personally can't stand those sequels that are nothing more than a collection of short stories with characters from the first movie. I still have nightmares from those *insert curse here* Disney sequels. To this movie's credit though, other than on a story level - which still matters A LOT - I didn't see anything else that is inferior to the first movie, with the possible exception of an inexplicably larger role for the elder of the village, an incredibly obnoxious presence that'll make you want to punch him in the face every time he opens his mouth.

Really, there isn't much to say. This is a sequel to Kirikou et la sorcière as much as Belle's Magical World is a sequel to Beauty and the Beast and... I don't know guys... maybe if you REALLY liked the first movie you'll find this enjoyable, but for me, this is something that should have been aired on Saturday mornings, not shown in theaters. If Kirikou et la sorcière didn't exist, this movie would make absolutely no sense: oh yeah, it's THAT kind of sequel, one that's entirely dependant on the movie that came before it.

Again, not a 'bad' sequel, aside from a decent plot it didn't feel like it was missing much of what made the first movie great (the visuals, the morals, the relatability, even the little scares are still there), but while the first movie was a wildly original piece with amazing visuals and a strong, fairytale-like feeling to it, this one feels like it was made by stitching together scenes that were cut from Kirikou et la sorcière. Advised for children who want to see more Kirikou in their lives, but with little purpose outside of that.
