Watch the original un-dubbed version and you'll get a good kids movie.
3 April 2018 | by Animany94See all my reviews

A sequel to Jungledyret Hugo was unavoidable if you remember the ending of the first movie. And in my opinion it didn't disappoint. It added more drama this time, because Hugo actually finds the spoiled life of moviestars comfortable and luxurious which conflicts with his street-oriented and free-spirited friend Rita's relationship with him.

After Isabella's fall into insanity in the first movie we now get her husband Conrad as the main antagonist. He has the same plan like that of the first movie, but will go to more extreme measures to get Hugo which makes him a more serious threat to Hugo. Nothing new, but the menacing actions make up for that.

We get more songs in this sequel and they are great! But bare in mind that the American dubbed version is terrible. I am from Denmark, so I know the original version and it was on par with the first movie.
