So fun fact, I just realized that Disney's movies followed Sonic's games for a while, stopping only with Wreck-It Ralph and Lost World
Home on the Range - Shadow the Hedgehog: Presents a huge shift in tone that's too much to one side, and results in them feeling completely off. Shadow was too try-hard dark, while HotR was too light and too kid-friendly, with nothing for families. Both movies present the warning for their series' worst entries to date.
Chicken Little - Sonic 06: The film/game that was a total fucking disaster for each retrospective series, having terrible characters, terrible stories, terrible comedy/drama, and were all around the biggest downfall. Both caused audiences to lose respect and trust in their retrospective companies.
Meet the Robinsons - Sonic Unleashed: A game/film that was seen as perfectly alright by many people. They came out right after the lowest points of their main series and had a lot to prove, needing to win back the crowd after their previous mistakes. They both made some mistakes but were a noticeable step up from their last products. An attempt to win back the crowd and rectify past sins. Didn't do their jobs completely, but did successfully make an important first step.
The Princess & The Frog - Sonic Colors/Colours: The game/film that pretty much won back the crowd fully after their past sins, and pretty much worked to ensure that they've learned their lesson, and wants to make products that are filled with quality again. They went back to the past and took an element that people loved (2D) and using that, and a lot of hard work, and feedback, won back their retrospective crowds.
Tangled - Sonic Generations: Pretty much took everything before and upped them to new levels, improving a lot of elements, refining elements, bringing back a lot of past elements (levels/fairy tale story), and is regarded as the crowd pleaser product that officially brought back a lot of attention back to their retrospective series.
