"Welcome to Monster High", alternatively titled "Welcome to Monster High: The Origin Story", is the fourteenth TV special produced for the Monster High cartoon series . It will release in fall 2016, and coincide with the new look Monster High dolls which will be released around the same time.
Very little is known about the movie at this time, other than it will focus on the origin stories of Monster High's core characters, and will be animated into a new CGI animation style, which closely matches the new look dolls coming in Summer 2016. Two new characters will appear, Ari Hauntington and Moanica D'kay.
The synopsis on dvd.netflix.com says:
"Once upon a tomb, monsters lived in hiding, afraid they would be in danger if humans knew they existed. But Draculaura, daughter of Dracula, and her ghoulfriends dreamt of a school where everyone was welcome, and a world where monsters and humans could co-exist. Determined to make their dream come true, Draculaura and her best ghoulfriends travel the world on an epic adventure to recruit new students. But even in an amazing place like Monster High, there's drama; a villainous zombie is spreading trouble rather than friendship, and every student must live with the fear that their secret will be revealed. Be there for the beginning of the thrilling and fun monster movement. It's a scary-cool good time that will celebrate the monsters among us!"
So.. Dracularua's adopted Operetta's pet spider? I'm so confused.
Dracu-Anna! She looks too much like Disney's Anna from "Frozen" now. And the spider? I have no idea what's going on.....
i hate this animation I hate draculaura's face this isn't draculaura why the spider why whY WHY
I like it.
I don't like the school's change in appearance. It looked better before, but I guess they wanted it to look more like the deluxe playset.
I like the new animation though. Look at those eyes! The hair looks better. The animation and details look cleaner. Looks great. (:
I hope that they can keep up with this sort of quality.
This is just sad on so many levels. Being a big fan of the pets, I hate Count Fabulous is gone. He was probably the safest of the pets, other than ones that clearly are not making it. I don't get why Drac would have Memphis, that makes zero sense. I mean, I guess it's better than replacing him entirely, with something like a safe cat or turtle (or whatever Lagoona has, looks like an octopus to me, but everyone says turtle.)
Ugh it's so cutesy! :( If I wanted cutesy, I'd be collecting Barbies. The only positive I can (possibly) see (since it's not confirmed or anything) but it looks like Drac is the face, not Frankie. Of the three mains, I always liked her best. I wanted to watch this and give it a chance, at least stay with the specials because Skull Shores, other than hunting for my sister, is what got me into Monster High. But this looks gross, in a bad way.
It's definitely what I expected rounded eyes, lighter colors, a more up beat mood. The spider is weird but maybe this time around the pets are not attach to any particular person. I wouldn't be surprise of a real crossover with EAH now. Perhaps even a netflix show that would be nice possibly clean up the story lines the webisodes are a bit of a mess. I wonder if they wrap up the books for those who read them too? Well more on point I of course like the older style better. The darker look worked for me it's what I like about these dolls. The were different and I feel ahead on the individuality theme for doll collectors. Now that not to say I don't like cutesy stuff cause I collect other things that are like MLP ponies and others dolls that don't have a dark theme. But what sold me on MH what that it's edgy, dark, creepy fun twist on monsters we grow up on. The heavy make-up and the use of a lot of dark color mix with bright ones. But everything has to change to survive unfortunately. I've collect many action figures, anime vinyls and other stuff and companies change and some don't even make it. I just hope and I've said it before a collector doll ever so often like the Draculaura would be nice for us collectors. And I'll probably still collect some new characters they make. The change sucks but I rather it change then it end all together.
"I like the new animation though. Look at those eyes! The hair looks better. The animation and details look cleaner. Looks great. I hope that they can keep up with this sort of quality."
Best. Sarcastic. Joke. Ever.
Thanks for the much needed laughter. :-)
(Sorry if you saw my original reply. I got defensive and angry.)
Here's my new reply for you:
"Grr... ):< "
I want to swear so much, that was awful I could cry, why dose she have her spider? like why? I know some pets being replaced but other characters pets passed off to someone else? and why a spider of all things, I thought the pets were being made cute like Cleo's kitty and Lagoona's turtle a spider isn't cute but eh shouldn't complain at least we have that bit of darkness I guess but it's not a lot too go by, it's not even that dark, but man the animation grr the animation I should have known that would change she looks like Lego friends, but her voice sounded the same lol.
