Excellent Disney Nature Fantasy
17 June 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A Walt Disney TRUE-LIFE FANTASY.

This is the story of PERRI, a female forest squirrel. We follow her life through the seasons of one year, learning the incredible struggles her kind must make to survive. We watch her deal with fierce predators & a devastating wildfire, before eventually finding a mate.

This is a splendid family film, based on the book by Felix Salten, the author of `Bambi'. (In fact, Bambi makes a live-action appearance). Using great nature photography - and a little bit of Disney special effects magic - it is a heart warmer that is sure to stay in the viewers' memory.

Highlight: Perri's wintertime dream. The story, told entirely in verse, is narrated by Winston Hibler.
