• I haven't seen such breathtaking landscape animation since The Lion King! This animation was partially beyond compare, and partially worse than most animated films out there. Even Quest For Camelot's characters seem better drawn. But still, it was a great try.

    As for the story, it's wonderful, absolutely wonderful. My cousin cares a great deal about wildlife, at just 9 years old. She identifies with Eliza, and hasn't seen this movie yet but I was able to appreciate how educational and morally right this movie was. It's splendid in its dimensions, and deserves some recognition.

    What I expected more of was comedy, though. But I think it's just fine the way it is.

    Nick succeeded in bringing a landscape to the screen, if only they could make their characters better animted.
