“Now, look! I’ve got a long way to go. You’re, you’re gonna take me there, and you’re not gonna give me any trouble about it, right?” Bernard said clearly to the razorback!
This is one of my all time favorite Disney movies. The animation is top notch, the acting is fantastic and the colors for the movie are beautiful. I can’t say enough of the animation for Rescuers Down Under…The film score is composed by Bruce Broughton who did Young Sherlock Holmes, The Man From Snowy River, Ice Pirates, and many others. The animators took credit from Don Bluth who animated the first Rescuers movie.
The film’s plot is this…Cody (Adam Ryen), a boy living in the Australian outback, frees a rare golden eagle from a trap. When an evil poacher (George C. Scott) kidnaps Cody to catch the eagle, a group of local animals contacts the Rescue Aid Society in New York City, who assign their top mice, Bernard (Bob Newhart) and Bianca (Eva Gabor), to the case. To save Cody and the eagle, the agents fly to Australia on a clumsy albatross (John Candy) and enlist the help of an adventurous kangaroo rat (Tristan Rogers).
The movie was directed by Mike Gabriel and Hendel Butoy. The score is simply fantastic, This movie was in the midst of Disney’s second Golden Age of movies, you could definately tell by the use of computer animation mixed and blended with regular animation.
I adore the characters and backgrounds in this film as well. If you haven’t seen this movie, you should go out, find it, watch and be amazed by the true art of this animated movie! You will love it!
