Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
As glad as I am to see an original Pixar film instead of another of their self-cannibalizing sequels, this feels like one of the studio's most inessential titles yet. The story starts with a clever idea (a fantasy world develops technology and forgets magic), but that idea is mostly used in service of sight gags in the margins, as the story hits the usual beats of an adventure movie for kids. There isn't a single turn of the plot that you can't see coming from space. I chuckled at a few of the jokes (a centaur counting to three by tapping his hoof was clever), but not nearly enough to recommend it.
