Movie Info

Ace animator Don Bluth directed this direct-to-video follow-up to his 1997 hit Anastasia, concentrating on the adventures of Bartok the Albino Bat (voice of Hank Azaria). Bartok and his best friend, Zozi the Bear (voice of Kelsey Grammer), are now making their way as street performers, but they find themselves drawn in when Prince Ivan is kidnapped by the wicked Ludmilla, who wants to get rid of the man who stands in her way as heir to the throne. Bartok and Zozi decide they must come to Prince Ivan's rescue, and they confront the evil and powerful witch Baba Yaga. Along with Azaria and Grammer, who repeat their roles from the original, Bartok the Magnificent features voice performances from Jennifer Tilly, Catherine O'Hara, and Tim Curry. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

This uninspired, but mercifully short, adventure will hold some amusement for little kids but bore everyone else.

Audience Reviews for Bartok the Magnificent


Quite original. but very boring(For most adults, and teens, I found it quite good, but I just don't like ones with bad endings) it was pretty good, for the children, but adults will punish there children, by not buying this for them, cause there shelfish selves don't want to have to listen to it, although it is completely actually pretty good for children to see. So, please, don't punish them, cause obviously, you never had a childhood if you would.

From the snappy opening sequence to the finish, "Bartok the Magnificent" is pure magic! It's a lot of fun. Bartok is a cute little creature. Quite original too! I liked it.
