It’s an odd way to celebrate the film’s 10th anniversary.
And in the middle of a year of Christmas and New Year’s Day releases, it’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the film series.
Rainbow Window is a series of shorts, all about children’s love stories, all made for YouTube.
It was made in 2000 by an anonymous animator with the aim of creating a series that was “as authentic and as fun as possible”.
The first was called The Little Mermaid, a short that was released in 2000.
Then came The Lion King, which had a theatrical release in 2001, and then The Lion Emperor, a sequel that followed in 2002.
Rainbow Viewed from a different angle, the series is still a joy to watch, even if it’s now an entirely animated series, rather than the traditional film that was the focus of the original series.
The animation itself has been incredibly faithful to the original, even in the more recent films.
And the voice actors are all back, from Robin Williams to John Krasinski to Tom Kenny.
It’s a tribute to the series’ original spirit, and a fantastic way to spend your birthday.
But as the series has aged, so has the nostalgia.
There’s something about watching a film from the ’80s or ’90s that feels nostalgic.
The soundtracks have aged better too, with tracks like The Big Lebowski and The Goonies being staples of the series.
If you don’t like the film, there’s a new album, a documentary, or an upcoming live concert.
There are also new shorts and a series finale, which was released earlier this year.
