My Top 4 Remakes/Sequels

Hey guys! Gerawallstar here, and I am here to do a top 4 reboots and sequels. In this day and age, we are seeing a plethora of reboots, remakes and sequels not just in the theaters but on streaming services as well. Im not going to lie, I don’t watch a lot of reboots. Sorry guys. However I will do this list of the reboots I do enjoy starting now:

  1. Winnie the Pooh (2011)

This film is special because not only it is the final 2D film from Disney (Disney released this movie next to the final Harry Potter movie that Im still bitter about) until the upcoming 2D/3D hybrid film Wish, but also it does a lot of things what a reboot should do. This film captures the heart of the original very well, and it has the same charming characters that made the original so great. The 2D animation is beautiful. One criticism I have with this film is that it is too short. Its even shorter than the original. I do recommend this movie. The original is still better, but this is still a good reboot from it.

  1. Mary Poppins Returns

I know that this is a sequel to the original Mary Poppins. However, this is a wonderful revisit to the original Mary Poppins. It does a lot of nice updates, contains a lot of catchy and neat songs, and I love the scene where Mary and the kids go into the world that is made in 2D. I loved how this movie uses 2D animation in that one scene. Also the cameo from Dick Van Dyke was nice.

  1. Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie

This film was brought back by a lot of fans who wanted this movie after the cancellation of the original Hey Arnold series. This film has a satisfying conclusion to the series. I loved the action scenes from this movie. The animation is awesome and updated really well from the time the original series was released. The ending was satisfying, the animation is great, and the characters from the original were a blast to see. Go check this movie out.

  1. The Peanuts Movie

Out of all of the nostalgia based properties, the peanuts movie is my favorite reboot ever made. This film is poignant and touching. I love Charlie Brown in this movie. This film has a lot of funny moments and a couple of clever action scenes from Snoopy in particular. I like how this film has a retro feel to it instead of being modern to get hip with today’s kids. The animation is unbelievable blending in 2D/3D. It paved the way for Spiderman into the Spider verse. This is a phenomenal movie and a well-rounded reboot of the franchise. If you haven’t seen it, please go see it.

Okay, that was my top 4 remakes. Although I do not like a lot of reboots, these movies remind me that there are still reboots that are not only good, but also properly integrates the nostalgia feeling/heart from the original properties. Go watch these films instead of the live-action remakes/atrocious modern movie remakes.

  1. I’ve never really seen the Hey Arnold series, so I don’t really have much to say about it. As for Winnie the Pooh, I haven’t really seen much of it since I was a kid.
    But yes, the Peanuts movie was a good translation of the Peanuts cast into 3-D animation, staying pretty true to the characters and themes. Mary Poppins Returns is good, and has some wonderful musical number sequences, but like Doug Walker and Movie Curiosities’ Curiosity Inc, I do have to wonder if Mary Poppins Returns really needed an actual villain, when the first film didn’t have one and didn’t need one. But aside from that, it’s a good expansion on the original.

  2. Never had that much fondness for Winnie the Pooh or Mary Poppins, so I haven’t seen either of those. The Jungle Movie was the perfect ending to Hey Arnold that fans had wanted for years without feeling like it was pandering or relying on fanservice to skimp in the storytelling. I don’t know if I’d consider the Peanuts movie to be a remake or reboot given it’s existed in many different media formats over the decades, but it really is a charming film that captures the heart of the strip and TV specials while still making it feel current.
