Spoiler-Free Review of “Disenchanted” on Disney+: Amy Adams Lights up the Screen Once Again

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“What if I told you that ever after wasn’t the end of their story?”

Disenchanted premiered on Disney+ on November 18th 2022. The film is a sequel to 2007’s Enchanted. It stars Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Idina Menzel, and Maya Rudolph. It runs for approximately two hours.

Years after finding her happily ever after, Giselle and her family move to the suburbs where they don’t really fit in, leading to her making an unexpected wish that may threaten both her community and the world of Andalasia.

Here is the trailer:

Disenchanted is the latest Disney sequel to air many years later. Does it still possess the charming magic of the original film while adding something new to the franchise? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Amy Adams is better than ever.

You would think it was only yesterday that she portrayed the character of Giselle. Once again, Amy Adams gives us a magical performance that is well worth the wait. She’s a dream as Giselle and we even get to witness another side of her (courtesy of her wish), giving us some more layers this time around.

It was fun seeing some other familiar faces as well and the newcomers did a good job with what they were given. Maya Rudolph was perfectly cast for her role and was wickedly entertaining.

Clever premise.

I absolutely loved the idea of there being more to the story after happily ever after because of course there is. The whole premise was really clever and allowed us to see Giselle in a new kind of world so that things still felt fresh. Otherwise it would have been a very repetitive story.

There were definitely some Once Upon a Time vibes going on, which I loved. OUAT writer, Brigette Hales, created the Disenchanted script so of course that makes sense, but it honestly worked to the film’s advantage.

I also loved the pop of color throughout the film, making this a gorgeous watch from start to finish.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Disney+

Supporting characters weren’t given enough to do…

It honestly felt like Patrick Dempsey was a cameo. I forgot he was even in the film several times. I think he needed more to do here. I get that this wasn’t about their love story anymore, but he’s perfectly capable of commanding the screen so I was slightly disappointed with this.

James Marsden was fantastic as ever, but barely appeared in the film. Yvette Nicole Brown and Jayma Mays are both such funny actresses and I had high hopes for them in this, but they really weren’t given much to do here either.

I also felt like this film burst into song a little too much. I don’t remember there being THAT many songs in the original film or maybe those songs were just better? Either way, I felt slightly disconnected every single time a new song began.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Disney+

I’m in!!!

A clever spin on the original film with plenty of magic to go around.

This film was far from perfect and not as good as the original, but it still had enough entertaining moments to make me smile throughout my watch and that’s what I was hoping for.

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…

It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.

Spoiler-Free Review of “The Santa Clauses” on Disney+: Scott Calvin is back and brings the nostalgia!

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“So we’re just doing home invasions now?”

The Santa Clauses premiered on Disney+ on November 16th 2022 with the first two episodes available to stream now. There will be six episodes in total that will air weekly. The holiday comedy series is a continuation of The Santa Clause films (the first film released in 1994). The series stars Tim Allen, Elizabeth Mitchell, Austin Kane, Elizabeth Allen-Dick, and Kal Penn. Each episode runs for approximately 33-35 minutes.

Scott Calvin begins to realize that he can’t be Santa Clause forever, as he searches for a suitable replacement for the job.

Here is the trailer:

The Santa Clauses has a good amount of nostalgia while creating something new with some decent humor.  Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Disney+

Good sense of nostalgia.

Much like Hocus Pocus 2, The Santa Clauses taps into some magical nostalgia, transporting us right back to 1994 when the first film released. I was super happy to see both Tim Allen and Elizabeth Mitchell in the series and there will be another familiar face to be excited about later on.

The newcomers (especially the elves) do a fantastic job as well, making this series a lot of fun.

Images courtesy of Disney+

The production value is pretty impressive.

When Santa traveled across the world, there were a lot more bells and whistles this time around. I don’t necessarily need a film or series to be flashy with tons of special effects, but The Santa Clauses gets an upgrade, making things feel shiny and new without losing its original magic.

Decent humor.

I think it helps that the showrunner on this worked on shows like Modern Family and 30 Rock. There is a dry humor that works really well. The series is great for kids, but it may be even better for the adults who watched the original film.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Disney+

I’m not sure this needed to be a series…

While I’m having fun watching it, I think this series might have worked better as a film. It sort of feels like a film already and I’m not sure that the weekly release of episodes will do it any favors.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Disney+

I’m in!!!

A cute and light watch with some genuinely funny moments.

If you’re a fan of the original movie, there’s plenty to enjoy with this series.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Hocus Pocus 2” on Disney+: The Witches are Back!

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

Beware the black flame candle….

Hocus Pocus 2 released exclusively on Disney+ on September 30th 2022. The sequel to the cult Halloween classic stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Doug Jones, Sam Richardson, and Tony Hale. It runs for approximately an hour and forty-five minutes.

When Becca and Izzy accidentally light the black flame candle, they re-summon the Sanderson sisters back to the town of Salem.

Here is the trailer:

Hocus Pocus 2 brings plenty of nostalgia for fans of the original film with a few new tricks up its sleeve. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Disney+

They still got it!

The original film premiered in 1993 so it’s been quite a while since we last saw the Sanderson sisters. I’m happy to report that these three still have it and then some! They were so much fun to watch on screen with delightful chemistry. It’s like they never left! There are plenty of new obstacles to get in their way and distract them, but whenever these three step on screen, they’ll put a spell on you for sure!

The new characters had their charms as well. I particular liked Tony Hale as the mayor, who added some quirky fun and Doug Jones continued to be a scene stealer in this film!

Images courtesy of Disney+

Lots of Easter eggs and nostalgia for fans of the original.

I personally really enjoyed the Easter eggs in the sequel. It channeled the vibe of the original film but it also found a new voice and story of its own. I was worried that things would feel redundant, but the new spin kept things fresh enough to keep me entertained until the end.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Disney+

Doesn’t hold a candle to the original…

Let’s be honest, it never was going to live up to the original film. I think it put forth a valiant effort with the nostalgia, but since it leaned on that quite a bit, I would have enjoyed seeing a few other familiar characters pop up in town.

Even though I enjoyed the new characters, they didn’t get the chance to truly shine or reach their full potential.

The musical numbers were fun, but they didn’t have the same punch this time around either.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Disney+

I’m in!!!

A fun sequel with plenty of bewitching moments featuring our beloved Sanderson sisters.

The original film is one of my favorite movies, but I think that the sequel did a decent enough job after all this time.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Ms. Marvel” on Disney+: Charming and Wholesome

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“Who do you want to be in this world?”

Ms. Marvel premiered on Disney+ on June 8th 2022 with its first episode. There will be six episodes in total and the remaining ones will air weekly. The superhero action series stars Iman Vellani, Fawad Khan, Aramis Knight, and Matt Lintz. Each episode runs for approximately 49-52 minutes.

Captain Marvel super fan, Kamala has trouble fitting in at school and at home until she discovers that she may actually have superpowers of her very own.

Here is the trailer:

Ms. Marvel is cute and charming, creating a new kind of superhero series to indulge in. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Ms. Marvel Spoiler Free 1

Images courtesy of Disney+

Kamala is a really fun character!

Much like Kate Bishop in Hawkeye, Kamala is quirky and funny. It’s very easy to relate to her and I think that Iman Vellani is a joy to watch on screen. Girls can be superhero fans too and I am loving our main character so far. I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Ms. Marvel Spoiler Free 2

Bubblegum pop charm.

I adored the vibrant and bright colors used throughout the premiere. This show is really wholesome and kid friendly, but it’s also just a lot of fun and really upbeat. It’s hard not to smile while watching this. 

The Cons:

Ms. Marvel Spoiler Free 3

Needs some more action.

I’m sure we’ll get there, but I wanted a little bit more action from the premiere. I appreciated that we took some time to really get to know Kamala and her family, but this is a superhero show so I want a little more in this department. 

So am I in or out?

Spoiler-Free Review of “Moon Knight” on Disney+: Bonkers but Intriguing!

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“There’s chaos in you…”

Moon Knight is a new mystery-action series inspired by the Marvel character. The series premiered on March 30th 2022 on Disney+ with the first episode available to stream now. There will be six episodes in total that will air weekly. Moon Knight stars Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke, May Calamawy, Loic Mabanza and Gaspard Ulliel. Each episode runs for approximately 45-49 minutes.

Gift-shop employee, Steven Grant begins blacking out and learns that he is sharing bodies with a mercenary named Marc Spector, as they begin to investigate the mysteries behind the Egyptian gods.

Here is the trailer:

Moon Knight is completely crazy, but it works somehow, leaving the audience wanting more as we follow along on this new adventure. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Disney+

Oscar Isaac is a lot of fun to watch!

I already liked him as an actor but I think he is adapting seamlessly into this new role and there was even a lot of quirky humor that I appreciated. It’s important to like the unlikely hero of the story and so far I think we have a winner here.

Super interesting premise.

I don’t know about you, but I have always been fascinated by the stories of the Egyptian gods and this particular Marvel character is allowing us a chance to explore some of these mysteries even more. The opening of the first episode gave me some National Treasure and Night at the Museum vibes, which is a good thing. I think as long as it balances out the historical angle with some action, we should have a lot of entertaining content to enjoy. Fingers crossed!

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Disney+

Not revealing too much…

I understand that maybe that’s the point, but with only six episodes, I wanted to know a lot more from the opening episode and we didn’t get too many answers. I’m willing to stick around to find out more, but I hope the series starts to reveal things soon. 

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Disney+

I’m in!

I may not really know what’s going on yet, but so far I am having a lot of fun watching this series and I can’t wait to find out more. I think we have lots of potential here!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Hawkeye” on Disney+: An Enjoyable Watch

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“I need a bow and arrow…”

Hawkeye premiered on Disney+ on November 24th 2021 with its first two episodes. There will be six episodes in total and the remaining ones will air weekly. The superhero action series stars Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfeld, Vera Farmiga, Tony Dalton and Florence Pugh. Each episode runs for approximately 49-52 minutes.

Clint Barton finally gets his own story as he tries to deal with life after the Avengers, but he finds himself back in action when he crosses paths with a young woman named Kate Bishop.

Here is the trailer:

Hawkeye brings us another superhero series to binge-watch, allowing Clint a true chance to shine, but does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Disney+

A dynamic duo worth getting excited about!

Hailee Steinfeld is honestly strong enough to carry this show on her own. I already love the character of Kate Bishop and I think that she brings a quirky charm to the role. I think that her and Jeremy Renner make an excellent team and I loved the interaction and banter between them.

More please!

Images courtesy of Disney+

Good balance of humor and action.

It’s not always easy finding this balance and Hawkeye does it so effortlessly. There were so many laugh-out-loud moments sprinkled in, which was really entertaining and there is already a scene stealer you will absolutely adore.

So far the action sequences are good too and I think that the pacing is done extremely well. I didn’t even realize when an episode was over because I was fully immersed in my watch.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Disney+

The kids need something to do…

I get that Clint is a family man and I loved seeing his kids appear on the show so far, but they really need something to do. His daughter is only a little bit younger than Kate and I’d love to see them show off their own heroic potential but perhaps we will get to see them more in the later episodes.

There just seems to be a lot of possibility brewing here so I’d love to see it explored a little bit more.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Disney+

I’m in!

This was such an entertaining watch so far and I can’t wait to see what happens next! I love the dynamic between the characters and the plot is really interesting too. 

I highly recommend this series to Marvel fans, but even if you haven’t seen all of the films, you won’t feel lost watching this show. It’s truly a delight!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Just Beyond” on Disney+: Kid Friendly Horror Comedy

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“What is this place?”

Just Beyond is a new horror comedy anthology series inspired by the works of R.L. Stine. The series premiered on October 13th 2021 on Disney+ with all eight episodes available to stream now. Just Beyond stars McKenna Grace, Lexi Underwood, Cedric Joe, Henry Thomas and Nasim Pedrad. Each episode runs for approximately 25-30 minutes.

Each episode explores a different phenomenon as our characters are immersed into a world filled with aliens, witches and ghosts.

Here is the trailer:

Just Beyond attempts to bring us more kids friendly horror with some fun and spooky premises, but does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Disney+

Stand-out episodes.

I really loved episodes one and four in particular. Each episode had its own unique story, but I almost thought some of these episodes could have actually branched off into their own shows. They were really intriguing and I loved the characters!

They also found just the right balance of creepy fun for both kids and adults.

A new entry for kids horror.

Kids horror has been releasing some solid entries lately and I liked that this series took a different approach. The series could have easily attempted to channel Goosebumps or even the new Are You Afraid of the Dark? reboot, but the horror comedy angle was different and I think it worked in a lot of ways.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Disney+

A disconnect at times and slightly repetitive.

Since I really liked some episodes more than others, it was difficult binge-watching all of the episodes in this anthology series because it lost some of its magic with each episode.

I also thought that a lot of the themes were similar and maybe this show would have benefited from releasing its episodes weekly to prevent things from becoming too stale.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Disney+

I’m in about 75 percent…

This series is fun for the whole family (although you probably want to monitor the content of each episode for your kids) and it gave us another welcomed entry into the kids horror genre.

Overall, it was a fun watch with lots of potential.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Just Beyond in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Loki” on Disney+: Mischief and Mayhem

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“Guilty of being the god of mischief? Yes…”

Loki premiered on Disney+ on June 9th 2021. The series will feature six weekly episodes that air on Wednesdays. Each episode runs for approximately 40-50 minutes. The show stars Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. 

The series takes place after the events of Avengers: End Game, as the god of mischief embarks on a confusing adventure of his very own, as he tries to figure out his place in the world.

Here is the trailer:

Loki has the potential to reel its viewers back into the MCU while charming us with one of our favorite antiheroes, but does its confusing plot get in the way of pure greatness? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Images courtesy of Disney+

Tom Hiddleston is charming as ever.

Loki has always been one of my favorite characters and whether you love him or hate him, there’s an undeniable presence and charm to Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal. He is witty, devious, and beyond entertaining, and having a show completely dedicated to him seems like a brilliant idea to me.

I’m excited to see him really flourish in his own show and I have to say that Owen Wilson is doing a fantastic job of keeping up. I was worried that he might be a little bit too cheesy or over-the-top, but his dry humor is balancing nicely with Loki’s and they are both really fun to watch on screen.

More please!

The antihero can be redeemed.

If you haven’t watched all of the Avengers movies yet, you probably shouldn’t be watching Loki, but his moment of redemption was needed, but it also left me wanting more from our beloved character and we basically get a second chance to see Loki go on a real path toward self-discovery and purpose. There is a lot to this character and he isn’t just a trickster. He has a lot of layers and I am excited that we will finally be able to uncover his full potential in this series.

The Cons:

Images courtesy of Disney+

Muddled and confusing.

I’m not going to lie, I was really confused by the first episode. There is A LOT going on and the TVA is not making things easy for the viewers at home. The mystery is intriguing enough to keep me coming back for more, but I’m hoping we can get some concrete answers soon since we only have six episodes to explore.

I am giving the show a chance despite the confusing premise and pacing issues especially since I was equally confused with the beginning of WandaVision and that quickly became one of my favorite shows of the year.

So am I in or out?

Images courtesy of Disney+

I’m in!

Tom Hiddleston is charming and entertaining enough to keep you coming back for more, but this show has some real potential. There is a lot going on and I hope that the pacing picks up with the coming episodes, but it has captured my attention and I am really interested to see Loki’s character develop even more.

Spoiler-Free Review of “WandaVision” on Disney+: Delightfully Intriguing

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“My wife and her flying saucers…”

WandaVision premiered on Disney+ on January 15th 2021 with the first two episodes available to stream now. There will be nine episodes in total that will air weekly. The series stars Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, and Kathryn Hahn. Each episode runs for approximately 30-35 minutes. 

If you are familiar with MCU, then you know that this series may initially seem strange and misplaced based on the events that occurred in the Avenger films. Nonetheless, we are presented with a sitcom series featuring Wanda (Scarlet Witch) and her husband, Vision. Things are not as they seem as we find ourselves trapped within a television-centric nostalgia that is not without its own unique charm and mystery.

Here is the trailer:

WandaVision may be the most unique release we have seen yet in MCU, paying its respect to timeless sitcom classics while presenting us with clever Easter eggs and the promise to unfold the mystery at hand, but does it do enough to keep viewers coming back for more? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

WandaVision Spoiler Free Review 1

Images courtesy of Disney+

Undeniable chemistry.

While I always noticed a spark between these two in the films, there really wasn’t enough time to devote to it with everything else going on. WandaVision gives us the chance to finally see just how charming these two can be together and I have to say that it’s even better than I could have imagined.

The love is believable and even though it’s clear that things are not as they seem, the connection between the characters keeps us invested in their well-being. Seriously, these two are adorable!

WandaVision Spoiler Free Review 2

Images courtesy of Disney+

Welcomed TV nostalgia.

The show really owes a lot to series like The Dick Van Dyke Show, Bewitched, and I Love Lucy, embracing all of these classic shows effortlessly without becoming stale in the process. I especially enjoyed the second episode and was actually really laughing at several parts, allowing myself to treat this show as what it is meant to be…a sitcom.

WandaVision Spoiler Free Review 3

Images courtesy of Disney+

Fantastic supporting characters and guest stars.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum, Emma Caulfield was fantastic and I always love watching Kathryn Hahn, who nailed the nosy neighbor vibe with flair. Pretty much every guest star has really added to the show and based on the cast listed, I can’t wait to see everyone else.

The Cons:

WandaVision Spoiler Free Review 4

Images courtesy of Disney+

Strange and confusing.

I’m all for strange and confusing and there have already been several well placed Easter eggs and hints at a bigger mystery going on, but it is really confusing at times. Perhaps we will get to everything in the later episodes, but I think that the series can take a page out of Pleasantville’s book and give the audience just a little bit more.

That being said, I am intrigued by the mystery and love the concept of being trapped inside a television sitcom (if that’s what is actually happening here), but I think some viewers may be turned off and lose interest if we aren’t given more hints soon.

So am I in or out?

WandaVision Spoiler Free Review 5

I’m in!

This show is really different and unique, but it also presents us with so much charming nostalgia. I can’t wait to watch the next episodes and I think that as long as the mystery picks up, this show will develop into something truly fantastic!
