A fun little movie to watch, but there is no reason for this story to have continued in the way that it has. In some way it feels as if there is some sprit lost in this sequel. One of my biggest pet peeves is when they do a sequel for an animated movie that they do not use the original voices for the characters. With The Swan Princess they did not use some of the same voices and it was very obvious, and quite bothersome. The first movie in the series is the best of all, so just watch that and if curious as to what might happen in the continuation of Odette and her friends then watch it, but just remember that the movie will fall short in every way possible.
