Sonic the Hedgehog Disney Lumberjanes All-Ages or Small-Ages?
As protagonists, Finn and Jake are unquestionably relateable and interesting for younger readers. They’re boisterous, bull-headed and full of self belief; they’re everything that children wish they could be. Standing up against the tyranny of whomever is attacking them, they retort back with a snarky quip and carry on with their day. For me, as a 24 year old, their attitudes began to grate from the very beginning. I applaud the decision to focus the story on the strength of their unconditional friendship, but it wasn’t enough to carry me through.
The content of the ongoing plot itself was somewhat lacking. It honestly wasn’t trying to be anything but a fun and weird romp through a magical land, so it’s difficult to mark it down for that too harshly. However, at the end of the day, while it succeeded at being sufficiently strange, I honestly wouldn’t say that there’s too much excitement and enjoyment to be had. It teases a bunch of potentially interesting concepts and power sets, but then doesn’t get a chance to delve too far into them before moving on to something else. It ultimately consistently gets trapped by its dedication to the relatively uninteresting Finn and Jake.
