Thoughts on Realm of the Jaquins
Wow, guys! Just wow! I absolutely loved this mini movie! I’m seriously amazed at how much story they were able to pack into 40 minutes! Which brings me to my only complaint– they packed too much story into 40 minutes! But the trouble is, I don’t think they could have trimmed anything off! They needed at least an the other thirty minutes to slow down the pace just a touch and focused in on some of the details– like I thought the quest to find Quito Moss was way too easy. I’ve played enough video games over the years to recognize an epic quest when I see one! Legend of Zelda, anyone? Or the guardian test– that also seemed way too short and to the point for something that was supposed to ensure that only the best of the best jaquins were appointed as guardians of Avalor. But seriously, I think that this plot could easily have been made as a full length animated feature and still would have kept me in the edge of my seat.
