Don't have any wrath, really. I just don't see the point. They can
make sequels to anything they like -- it won't take a thing away
from the original. But since it isn't likely to add anything either,
I doubt I'll pay much attention to it. I don't even know if I'll
mention it in my Toonopedia article on the subject (http://www.toonopedia.
com/snowhite.htm). Depends, I guess, on whether or not the sequel
has enough staying power to be remembered a couple of years later.
According to most definitions, stories of Snow White living with
the Dwarfs, or Pinocchio still a puppet, or Ariel still a mermaid
-- anything where the ending of the original story hasn't happened
yet -- aren't sequels.
