    The Wild - movie

    I just came across an ad for a new Disney movie coming out in April called The Wild. It's about a lion from the New York zoo that gets shipped to Africa and his friends, (one of them is a giraffe) go rescue him...hmmm where have I seen that before....

    What is up with that!

    LOL I found the simialirities amusing.
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    The story line was different, but the fish concept was just a little too close on the heels of Nemo.

    Maybe they will be different. THe question will be---which one is better?

    Personally, I like Nemo better than SharkTale.

    I still enjoyed shark tale, those rasta jellyfish are too much!


    I am wondering if there is a story behind Madagascar and The Wild, who came up with the idea, who copied who? No way it's a fluke! Same zoo, same animal for the main character? Must investigate...

    I still don't think Shark tail and Nemo are alike.. I saw both, own nemo and will own Shark tail one day. I loved them both but still can not see the similarity...

    As Tinker Bell stated.. Madagascar and The Wild are similar, almost identical.... oh well, will see it anyway, since it is DISNEY
    April 23rd, oh yeah it's gonna be ON!

    Apparently there's a long line of Disney movies that are similar to other non-Disney ones, honestly I've never paid attention until now! I'm sure I'll end up watching The Wild!


    Nemo - Shark Tale
    The Wild - Madagscar
    Bug's Life - Antz

    There's more, I just can't think of them right now...

    I'm a little bit upset with Disney for making this movie so closely to another. But then again, you have to think about how long these CGI movies take to produce, so it's possible that work began shortly before, you never know. I feel very un-Disney saying this, but I think I like Madagascar better. I love David Schwimmer!

    That's the thing, who knows who thought of the idea first, maybe the Madagascar people finished first (way ahead) and released it first making Disney look like the copy cat.

    P.S. I loved King Julian!
