When I was 8, I went over to my gran's house and we sat and watched the old classic King and I on tele. Then I later saw advertisements for this animation version, so my dad took me to see it at our local cinema. Well, in the presence, I re-watched this on Youtube and now I have to rate it a 1/10 because of how awful this was. The original King and I didnt have this, but this was way too frightening to look at for young viewers. There is a villain named whatshisname who puts on an evil scheme to distract the village with scary dragons, scary animals, a bloody-colored river, and there is a near death experience with the king. This movie is way to scary too look at with your kids. There is this woman who almost drowned at the part where she gets carried away in the river. This is nothing copied off of the original classic King and I and here are some subjects about it:
The animation was beautiful (almost like a Disney animation film). The script was flat. And the storyline was mostly predictable. The songs were forgettable. The characters are unfavorable.
Skip this floppy animated version and watch the original King and I.
