    I wasn’t impressed with the original, and this sounds to be a rehash of it but with phenomenal CGI. I’ll probably watch it when it comes on DISH just for the animation. Thanks, Robert.

    Thanks for this review, Robert. Haven’t seen it yet, but appreciated you pointing out that the way the animals are now (soooooooo realistically) portrayed, they cannot also do all the facial expressions etc. Interesting, hadn’t thought about that. I’ll probably wait till my granddaughter is here to watch it on DVD over and over and over and over and………….over
    I always appreciate your insights!
