The movie is pretty decent. No major spoilers. The second part continues the trend of the first.

...And that's about it :p

Aside from a cute furry being introduced, the movie felt like a copy and paste of an episode from season 1: a plot that was ok at best, a tonne of scenes with lore I didn't really care about (apart from the ...
