The Brave Little Toaster and her fellow appliances are welcoming a new “little master” and must do anything to keep him safe in the sequel, “The Brave Little Toaster Goes To Mars.” After Rob and Chris bring home a baby, the appliances do everything they can to stoke the little master’s curiosity. But when the hearing aid in the junk drawer is trying to go to Mars, the little master is accidentally taken, and Toaster, Lamp, Radio, Hearing Aid, Calculator, Microwave, Fan and Blanket all head to Mars to try to save him.

This was a downright odd film. “The Brave Little Toaster” has always kind of been a forerunner to “Toy Story,” only with appliances coming to life when no one is looking rather than toys. This film’s idea and plot walked so that “Toy Story” could run. But this series just doesn’t have the staying power of “Toy Story.” The plot was cute and is certainly little kids will probably enjoy. But this one just didn’t stick with me the way the “Toy Story” films or even the first “The Brave Little Toaster” film has.

The villain of this film was incredibly odd. At first, it’s presented as a refrigerator who found a way to Mars and is trying to destroy Earth because it is convinced that human are evil. Then, we find out the refrigerator was being controlled by the hearing aid’s twin brother who had been left to a scientists studying bombs and explosions and that had colored its idea of humanity. The second hearing aid then helps the appliances and the little master get back to Earth rather than destroying it. Again, I’m sure younger kids will probably love it, but I don’t have any nostalgia goggles to color my viewing of it.

This film is cute, I can certainly give it that. I just don’t believe there’s a lot more to it than being cute. It’s there. It’s inoffensive but unremarkable. I really just didn’t care about the appliances, the journey or the alleged villain. It’s fine, but “Toy Story” took the concept and made it better.
