Reasons for "Change"

Reasons for  Change

I speak on the relevance of the Balto sequels...Love em? Hate em??? Tell me what you think about em!


I am personally a firm believer that classic films should be left alone. However, in recent years, both Disney and Universal have pulled their oldest films from the vault in hopes to make profit for the sequels.

When Balto II was released, I saw it. I understand why Aleu's story was told. She was easy to differentiate from her siblings because she was the only one that had more characteristics from Balto, than Jenna. And she chose to join a pack of wolves, which again, made her unique. I get that story.

In Wolf Quest, all of the pups, excluding Aleu, are adopted. She is the only pup left in the box when the sun goes down. And if I remember correctly, there was no unique circumstance in Wolf Quest that would have separated Kodi from the other five pups. Unlike Aleu's destiny with the wolves, we can assume that the other five puppies would have either become a pet (Like Jenna) or a working sled dog. So again, there is nothing truly remarkable about his story. Will the other five puppies have their own shot at the spotlight? Probably not. Even though some of their lives would have been just as remarkable as Kodi's. I understand that Wings of Changes marks the time that people began relying on flying, but it seems to be premise of another story.

I personally do not get why Wings of Change was created. I'm convinced that both Disney and Universal is running out of ideas and therefore, they are forced to go back to the classics. Anywhere they can find some sort of an idea at the end of the classic, that's where the sequel is going to go!  It works in some cases. Loved the first Balto. Tolerated the sequel because it had a twist. Was not a personal fan of the third. One sequel is pretty much my limit. Respect the classics before you ruin them with sequels, movie makers.

I understand that, and you're free to your opinion. I was just stating how I feel about the films. Just because someone responds after you, that doesn't always mean they're responding to you personally.

To each their own, but I'll never understand why people hate Balto III. Compared to Balto II, I think the third film has a better plot. Balto II seemed too corny to me. I know that there was an Eskimo village in Nome, but basing a story off of that concept just seemed random and out of place. Aleu's character was annoying in every way, including her voice.

Balto III was down-to-earth, and fits in with the time period. I personally don't see the issue with Universal making another film based on Balto's offspring. I never saw that as a problem. The biggest complaint I've ever seen about the film is Stella. Compared to her, there are far worse things out there a child could see. Take these pop stars for example. Young kids are being exposed to these people, and some are even fans of them. People such as Katy Perry are not for kids, yet she appeals (and this goes for any pop star) to many young girls. Stella is nothing compared to these folks.

I personally, agree with you. I don't think they needed to make a third Balto. I always hate when good movies have sequels that ruin the first story.
