  1. Both films have their place, I think, In Disney’s canon. The original remains the best, largely due to its unique “newness” for the time, the way it attempts to explain “sound” and the sheer splendid-ness of the animation. The sequel, while “snappier” and less circumspect than the original, is technically superior but less likely to strike the same emotional chords. The little soldier segment is my favorite, as is the flying whales moment, but largely I was taken out of the movie by the “stunt casting” segues into each segment by the “stars” involved – Steve Martin?
