    One foot in, one foot out.
    All ideas and concepts for this movie felt like they only fleshed out half of it before releasing it to the audience. The musical scenes were too overdone, not magical but flooded with extra movements. Bland side characters with carbon-copy personalities. (Also too many of them for a 1.5 hr movie, in my opinion.) Asha, the main character, and the villain did not have believable enough motives. Colors were dull and the vision this team had for executing this animation style fell flat.

    I give this such a low rating because this was the first time I've been so disappointed in a Disney movie. I was the only one at the theater showing, so I don't know how other people reacted. I'm usually not very picky, and I tried to find positives the entire time, but the only positive I was able to find were the great singing voices of the voice actors. (Lyrics unfortunately didn't count) Sorry ):

    Bunch of haters
    Was this top 10 Disney movies of all time? No. Did it have a cute storyline? Was it visually pleasing and interesting? Were their funny bits a done liners? Yes. People are just haters. I'm glad Disney is back to having actual villains. I think there was a political statement here that apparently everyone missed? The star was adorable and the main character was cute and funny and actually acted like a young girl. Coming out the year of Disney's 100th anniversary made all the little homages to Disney classics the cherry on top. Much better than Encanto, which didn't have a storyline or even a real ending.
