Review – Toy Story 4 & Aladdin (2019)

by Kevin Muller

It may seem that Disney is becoming a juggernaut of the film industry by buying every single part of Hollywood, but they have always been the forerunner in family entertainment.

Coming out, I have to admit this is a fine follow-up that manages to make Dory a main character without stretching her too thin, but it comes up lacking compared to the first film.
