FYI: Seen it. It's... not terrible.

But it's not up to Pixar's usual standards, even compared to most of their straight-to-DVD fare.

It feels like someone just slapped a few Pixar images over a very well-used script that we've all seen many MANY times before.

There's been a huge talent-flight at Disney animation over the last few years over various discrimination issues and upset over streaming decisions, and of course the now-controversial unfiltered-mouth-serial-hugger/kisser and maker-of-incontrovertably-great-product John Lasseter is now at Skydance Animation.

Starting to wonder how much longer Pixar has left in this world.

Yeah I thought it was OK too. Definitely funny/good parts throughout but in the end not entirely memorable. I would say similar to The Good Dinosaur in that regard.

For the last few years every time I've watched anything from Pixar it seems to be the same story with different characters. the magic is gone and the formula now rules.

Didn't enjoy Sea Beast.

Totally formulaic and forgettable with nothing to make it endearing.

I remember hoping Pixar would take over Disney the way NeXT took over Apple.

By the time "Wreck It Ralph" (misunderstood hero) came out with the Disney Label, and "Brave" (another princess movie) came out on Pixar, I knew that was not to be.

Glad Apple did not buy Disney as was rumored about a decade ago. The Mouse is strong with the Dark Side, unless Ms Powell-Jobs took over as CEO of Disney.
