Movie Info

A brand new full-length animated feature film based on the musical. An all-star cast of voices introduces us to the beloved characters of THE KING AND I. Miranda Richardson is Anna (with her songs sung by Christiane Noll); Martin Vidnovic (Lun Tha in the 1977 Broadway revival) is the voice of the King; Saturday Night Lives Darrell Hammond plays the all-new character Master Little and Ian Richardson is the voice of the dastardly Kralahome. Under the direction of Disney veteran animator Richard Rich, the animated version of THE KING AND I represents a delightful marriage of the most innovative animation technology available with the timeless songs considered to be the finest Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II ever wrote.

OK for kids, but classic movie version is a better bet.

Common Sense Media

It's cotton-candy family entertainment--all sugar and no substance.

Film Journal International

This mildly interesting animated feature adaptation of the classic Broadway play is carried mainly by the melodic and lyrically vibrant music of Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Spirituality and Practice

A quality-butchering remake.

The most stupefyingly incompetent animated feature to reach the big screen in recent memory.
