Now bear with me as I give you a short post on one of those promised ones: sequels.
In fact, it's very repetitive.
Petite Tiaras is a tumblr blog, and the blog author (I don't know the person's gender) shared a nice collection of the different Disney film sequels along with a quote I shared in an earlier post.
And she/he/it (the author, okay?) shared some of her/his/its own opinions on these sequels.
"I’ll admit it, Disney sequels aren’t that great. In fact, I think for the majority of the movies they use the same formula. You have the original awesome characters who are no longer as cool as they were before. They have a child who thinks that they run the place. For some reason the kid always makes their parent look weak. For instance, how did Simba get his butt kicked? Or what about Tramp? Ariel? None of it makes sense. We watched and cherished the first films because the characters were great and relatable, but the sequels bring them down a whole notch. That’s not to say that Disney sequels aren’t fun though. I always get a laugh watching the Lion King 1 1/2 and Bambi 2 was a very heartfelt film. Sequels are a give and take thing."

I definitely agree!
More on that later.
Until then, here are some pretty interesting sites discussing Disney sequels...
