the animators do a lot to cram in as many jokes to this as possible, and while they don't all land gracefully, none of them crash either.
Can I name the witch Nagini? She's a shapeshifting character based off of an animal from the original material that has a small part at the villain's side but is now elevated to a large supporting role, that fosters an attempt at a complex narrative balancing the expectations put upon women, with, a desire for villainy. She's Nagini.
I didn't like Nagini.
- Why does Mulan live in Shakespeare's Globe Theatre?
- What is this movie's bird obsession all about and where did it come from?
I'm beginning to sense a familiar pattern with Pokemon movies:
- there are two legendary Pokemon duking it out
- a Pokemon hates humanity through a huge misunderstanding based on the events of one evil individual
- Ash performs a great feat of courage
- Pokemon and humanity are proven not to be evil and both can live together in harmony
- everything in between is just Team Rocket pissing about and Pokemon screaming their names, with an inevitable "come out everybody" scene with some K-pop crap playing that describes an overarching moral about achieving your goals, through Pokemon. Oh, and Brock flirts to death.
