The Legacies of NIMH Poster by JackOrJohn The Legacies of NIMH Poster by JackOrJohn
A poster I've made for The Legacies of NIMH, which takes place 8 years after the original film by Don Bluth and is written by the amazing :iconsecretsister16: It's basically a fan-made sequel to the movie (that will to a complete degree ignore the events of Timmy to the Rescue).


Link to chapters:
LoN Prologue
Prologue:
Mrs. Brisby took in a deep breath-and exhaled. It was a wondrous thing to breathe with ease, without any trace of fear or anxiety.
The nightmare she had been living since Timothy first came down with a fever was finally over. And the most miraculous thing of all was that she, a simply field mouse, had woken herself up. But not without a little help.
One of her blessed helpers sat with her now. She and Justin shared a sun-warmed rock atop a hill. Down below the dawning sun cast a warm glow over the Fitzgibbon farm.
“NIMH will be here soon,” she reluctantly broke the peaceful silence.
“And they’ll find nothing but an old rose bush,” he replied, a small measure of pride warming his voice. The other rats had already left for Thorn Valley, Justin temporarily staying behind to tend to the Brisby family.
“How are you feeling, Mrs. Brisby?” Justin turned his upper body to her. Although his smile was still in place his eyes were worried.

LoN Ch. 1Ch. 1: Unfit in a Fit World
8 Years Later
Auntie Shrew’s age did little to calm her feisty spirit. She still held a fierce tongue that was louder than her creaking bones.
Whenever Elizabeth visited her old friend it gave her a sense of unease, an unease the shrew caught and addressed. “Still look as young as they day I met you.”
Auntie Shrew sat in the burrow of the farmer’s field that was her winter home. She sat at her table while Elizabeth brewed a kettle of tea.
“Thank you,” she acted as if the words were a compliment but they made her skin crawl. Despite the years that had passed she looked to have not aged a day since the rats of NIMH left. Her children had grown, though slower as she had excepted as they were Jonathon’s children. The four were the only who didn’t question her lack of gray fur and wrinkles, but the rest of the animals around the forest and farm did not let her forget her oddity.
Nor the oddity of her children.

That's why this story will do the best of its ability to ignore it and try to be a more befitting sequel.

What can I say? He's spot on when describing all the major problems with it. In fact, there's a lot of minor inconsistencies that he doesn't bring up, but I am guessing that it would've taken forever to go too much into all the little details. He does sum it up when saying it's bloody awful, and that the only remotely enjoyable thing about it was Eric Idle as the villain because he gives a hundred percent in his performance despite that it's a badly written part on the paper.     
I personally found it strange though that Martin's voice goes back to his teenage voice when he goes back to normal. It boggles that they couldn't just have had Idle play him there as well.

Indeed! I mean, Evil Martin has a British accent while normal Martin has an American! That comes off as somewhat racist for me...

Did it feel therapeutic seeing the NC get the Death Star to destroy it?

It just about covers what Doug Walker said, plus a little more.

The story I wrote is called The Secret of Nimh: The Lost Colony.  It's about Mrs. Brisby meeting the lost colony of rats and mice who believed to have perished at Nimh.  She meets new friends and a new villain called Damien who is Jenner's evil insane younger brother.  

This is what Damien looks like.

I remember reading Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH when I was young and then later the movie, The Secret of NIMH.  This looks awesome.

It looks cool.  I wrote a sequel to that movie also.  It's a lot better than Timmy to the rescue.

Mrs. Brisby is holding the glowing medallion, Teresa is holding the one holding the book, Martin the sword, Cynthia the telescope, Timmy the one who is facing the corrupting darkness and Brutus the one who is fending off the rattle snake.

Oh, okay. Cool. I was mostly confused about which one was Tim and which one was Martin.
