It was definitely made for the kid's toon audience,

but I have to say I liked it for the most part.

The animation isn't too shabby, the musical

scores and scenes are good. I guess what takes

people the wrong way is the use of comedy,

and fantasy (the cat tearing up the statues

while the King sings) and some other issues

with characters.

Yes it's not the 1956 version with Yul, nothing

will top that but it's still not that bad as

far as remakes and different versions go.

I would recommend if you have kids and you want

to introduce to a fun film with references

to the original which blends in some Middle Eastern

culture and values.

Best movie ever! I was so happy to find this DVD because this was one of my favorite movies growing up. The music is amazing, and the characters are fun. There's even a character who keeps loosing his teeth. If you have kids, this is a great way to introduce them to Musical Theater in a fun cartoon adaptation of a great musical The King and I.

My daughter was three when she first watched this and she enjoyed it so much that I plan to buy it very soon. You say the story was rushed? How long do you think a child's attention span is? It was great and I truly hope that Warner Brothers continues to make these type of movies. Especially great for any children who love to sing and dance like mine.

I truly enjoyed this movie. It is highly underrated and hopefully will be appreciated in years to come. Instead of going over plot details, I trust just about everyone is familiar with "The King and I," I'll instead go over the things that I enjoyed most about the film.
Director Richard Rich, who helmed Disney's The Fox and the Hound and The Black Cauldron, helms a very Disney-worthy animated feature for another movie studio. The artwork is beautiful, very vibrant, but the animation is on par with alot of the Disney films from the 1980s, maybe. The characters are basically the same from the original musical, The King of Siam and Anna included. However, there is a new character named Master Little who is voiced by SNL funnyman Darrell Hammond. He's probably the funniest part of the movie. One detractor, is that I thought that the villian, The Kralahome, was a bit too much like Jafar from Disney's Aladdin in his attempt to manipulate various characters, the King included.
However, I think the number one reason I like it better than the 1956 version is because it is only a brief 90 minutes while the original tops out at a whopping 133 mins. Overall I enjoyed Warner's 'King,' even though it seems to drag at points, I will no doubt enjoy watching it for years to come.

They got the culture all wrong. Why did they draw the characters looking East Asian? Siam is more influenced by the Indian culture and have their ancestry. Thailand's people have big eyes and brown skin, very rarely you'll find some with small or slanted Asian eyes.

I love the animated version of the Kind and I. It is beautiful. The only reason why I give it such a low rating is because I could not play the disc, not due to the Region, but because when I received it, it had two deep scratches and my DVD players refused to play it. You can just imagine my disappointment. I so desperately wanted it for my collection, but I suppose it is just one of those things!!

Not what I had assume it to be, and there were a lot of unnecessary differences. Here are the pros and cons:

Pros:

Likable Singing
Good Ending
Great Bonus and extra features

Cons:
Too much fantasy
Noncute children
Tuptim and the prince
Different Villain

I rated it five stars because the nostalgia is strong and I laugh everytime when Master Little speaks. Though I find the love between Tuptin and the Prince quite cringe worthy, I love it none the less.
