Belle’s Magical World – Disneycember

Oh God…it’s so bad…it’s so bad. It’s said to be the worst sequel to a Disney film, I think they are right.

  1. Yep, this movie is terrible! It’s the WORST of the direct-to-DVD Disney sequels! But he skipped Pooh’s Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin, which came before the Beauty and The Beast sequels! That one is really good, one of the best Disney sequels in my opinion! That’s just what he needs after seeing this AWFUL movie!

    I actually forgot that this ever existed. Fair enough I guess.

    Lol you can hear Doug’s anger loud and clear in this one. XD

    Great DERP face, Belle :p

    Weird he’d do this one BEFORE Magical Christmas, considering he has to mention it several times. I’ve heard this was indeed supposed to be a TV show but it was cancelled and released as a DVD instead. I can’t confirm that, but I know for a fact it happened to others. Cinderella 2 and Atlantis: Milo’s Return were both the scraps from cancelled shows. It’s possible that’s what this is too.

    • Actually, that’s where you’re wrong. In last year’s Disneycember, he started the direct-to-video Disney sequels. He did the Enchanted Christmas, Jungle Book II, and I think he did one other one. I don’t remember what it was though… if he did a third one.

      • He did Return To Neverland as well. He thought Return To Neverland was good, Enchanted Christmas was okay, and The Jungle Book 2 was bad.

      • Jungle Book 2, and Return to Neverland (the other one you’re thinking of) were both released in theatres, though. 🙂
        Enchanted Christmas wasn’t, but I assume he only did that one because it was Christmassy, and because he was short on stuff to review at the time.

    YEP! That is correct, absolutely correct!

  6. Actually this movie is a compilation of finished episodes for the series that was never made because it was cancelled after 3-4 episodes.

    So they put them together into this.. film.. thing. Can it be even reviewed as a movie if its leftovers from a canned series?

  7. Yeah, as others have stated, this is just 4 completed episodes from what was supposed to be a TV Series. Why anyone thought that was a good idea, I have no idea.

    • The same happened with Atlantis: Milo’s Return. They originally had “Shards of Chaos” planned as a sequel, but shelved it when the original film wasn’t as successful as initially planned. The events in Milo’s Return are three episodes strung together.

  8. Oh dear god I thought “The Enchanted Christmas” was bad!

  9. You know… had they just been honest that these were a collection of pilot episodes sent to video, then this really wouldn’t be as bad as it’s already made out to be.

    Oh don’t get me wrong, even as a collection of short stories it still be bad, but just not AS bad!

  10. I used to consider Enchanted Christmas the worst until I saw this one. And then I checked out Atlantis 2 and it’s pretty horrid as well.

  11. Actually, the stories featured here WERE finished episodes of a BatB TV series that was never released. What’s sad is how much effort Disney put into creating beautiful and original box art for both the 2003 and 2011 re-releases (BOTH of which were SPECIAL EDITIONS to boot!) of “Belle’s Magical World”, while the box art for every re-release of the ORIGINAL film only gets worse and worse.

  12. At first I was trying to remember if I had seen this as a kid. Now I remember seeing this one. However, I didn’t realize it until saw the feather duster. Literally the feather duster is the only thing I remember. Haha.

  13. Only three movies in and it’s getting to him…nothing like the Disney Direct to DVD sequels to drive an ordinary person to the brink of INSANITY! I hope he can last out the month…

  14. I have a feeling we’re going to see quite a few reviews of this type this month.

  15. If this is after the Enchanted Christmas, then why isn’t that one on the list? Was it actually released in theaters?

    Edit: Guess not. But you already did that one. Still would have been good to reference that in this review. Say that you skipped it because you already covered it, and then provide a link.

  16. Anthology, the term you’re looking for, and failing to find is anthology, this is an anthology movie, made of segments. It may not be a blockbuster but it still is a movie – technically.

  17. Never seen this one and I’m glad I didn’t! I just loved how quick this was! Everything was so hilarious. I saw “Enchanted Christmas” though. You should make a list of worst Disney sequels. The Nostalgia Chick did!

  18. I had no idea that the “Belle Meme” was based off of an unedited frame of animation from this.

    Maybe one animator was doing one eye and another was doing the opposite one and they forgot to get together…

    What the heck is this animated abortion?

  20. It looks like a tv show — and those two lines by limiere sure sound like a cartoon.

    I don’t think I saw this one, cause I ahted the second one — or did I see it and actually loath it and forget it?

    Meh, whatever.
