    Rewatched with friends and it was just as good the second time around.

    I really, really, REALLY wished they recasted Awkwafina, because her voice acting basically ruined the film. Also, Lin-Manuel Miranda, not every single film needs a mediocre rap number. The CGI choices made were also.. questionable (Sebastian's design was a nightmare)

    Halle Bailey and Jonah Hauer-King nailed it though, no complaints on that department. I would have given this 3 stars or less if it weren't for Halle's vocals tbh.

    Predictable? Yes. Fun anyway? Absolutely.

    The Hannah Waddingham supporting character was gold and I wished I saw more of her, but nevertheless I found it to be very enjoyable. Definitely was singing along with some of the musical numbers too. The Sanderson sisters were everything and more, and frankly this was a sequel done well.

    The younger cast were also equally cool, and frankly I live for the multiple queer references made throughout the film. (Disney, seriously, it's okay to say gay).

    I expected emotional baggage and unresolved family trauma, especially when it featured a culture that I'm all familiar with too well (I'm ethnically Chinese after all), and I got that and more. The animation was just so beautifully AND respectfully done, with very fine details done so well and proper as it should be. Culturally, it was as accurately as I hoped for: filial piety is part of being Chinese after all. Domee Shi has done it again.

    Also, can…
