Imitations of reputable products often work just as well and/or look just as good as the originals. But is this applicable to art and entertainment as well? To think that a team of creative practitioners should go to the effort of scripting, designing, animating, voicing, and composing music for a movie just so it might be mistaken for another movie, or just to capitalise on the publicity for another movie, strikes me as a little despressing. Then again, my children haven't complained about the quality of The Secret of the Hunchback, so maybe I'll be buying copies of UAV Entrttainment's The Secret of Mulan and The Secret of Anastasia next.
