Main Question or Discussion Point

I am wondering about the differences between plant vs animal cell division, mainly about cytokinesis.

Is the following a true generalization?

Plant daughter cells seperate by forming membrane vesicles that line up in the center of the cell and fuse to form new plasma membranes.

Animal daughter cells seperate by constricting the remaining cytoplasmic bridge until the two daughter cells become seperated (like tightening a string around the cells).
