12 Underrated Disney Sequels That Need To Be Seen Pronto

Not all sequels are awful.

Sequels are given such a bad rap, even Disney has had its struggle with producing quality follow-ups to their hits. I have scoured the internet, interviewed my friends, and went on quite the movie marathon to compile a list of Disney's best, most underrated sequel films.

If you are in search of some quality Disney originals, check out my first article on this topic: 12 Underrated Disney Movies That Need To Be Seen Pronto. So I guess, this is my sequel.

1. The Little Mermaid II

Follow Ariel's daughter, Melody, as she journeys into the sea. Basically, it's "The Little Mermaid" in reverse, but still worth the watch. Also, its got some great music.

2. Aladdin and the King of Thieves

"The King of Thieves" is the third installment of the Aladdin trilogy (we can just pretend the second one doesn't exist). It starts with a wedding and has a lovely family reunion. Also, Robin Williams re-joins the cast as the voice of the Genie, so, win.

3. Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch

I'll let you know when I can get through this movie without crying.

4. Return to Never Land

"Return to Never Land" is set in London during WWII. It follows Wendy's daughter, Jane, as she travels to Never Land. I'm also a huge fan of the song "I'll Try" by Jonatha Brooks which is featured in the film.

5. Extremely Goofy Movie

This is the sequel to "The Goofy Movie." While I'm not a big fan of either of these movies, my friends swear up and down that it's great and most of the internet agrees. So, I guess it earned a spot on the list.

6. Mulan II

"Mulan II" has a lot of mixed reviews, but as far as sequels go, it wasn't completely awful. It made me laugh and it had a few good songs. Every Disney fan needs to give it a watch.

7. Beauty and the Beast: Enchanted Christmas

If there's one movie on the list you have never heard of, this is that movie. The entire cast came back for this and it was the coolest thing ever in 1997 when it first came out. Now, you kind of have to look past the shotty animation to enjoy it for what it could have been. It's a cute one you should give a try.

8. Brother Bear 2

I love love and "Brother Bear", so thers no downside here. And Patrick Dempsey voices Kenai in the sequel which is totally fine by me.

9. Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure

Similar to "The Little Mermaid II", Scamp's Adventure is basically "Lady and the Tramp" backwards, but it's just too cute. Like look at them, they're so precious.

10. The Lion King II: Simba's Pride

This is my absolute favorite sequel. Go watch it right now. It has a very Romeo and Juliet feel to it, which is fitting since the original "The Lion King" is based on Hamlet. I'm not going to give anything away, but it's beautiful.

11. The Lion King 1 1/2

Keeping with the theme of "The Lion King", the third Lion King movie is also a must-see. I don't know if this counts as a sequel because it is set at the same time as the original Lion King but told from Timon and Pumba's point of view. It has new songs and is just as fabulous.

12. Cinderella III: A Twist in Time

I love this movie. It retells the story of Cinderella but as if Lady Tremaine had the magic wand. What if...

These are what I found to be the best, most underrated Disney sequels in no particular order. You may have noticed the "Toy Story" sequels are missing from the list. That is because, while they are some awesome sequels, they are not really underrated. What's your favorite Disney sequel?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
