A beautiful movie featuring the most lovable characters in a Disney movie to date.

Perri is a beautiful movie. It features wonderfully developed characters and some excellent cinematography. What makes Perris stand out above the newer Disney movies is that all of the animals are real. No animation here! Instead we get an intimate look into the life of a cute little squirrel. Who knew squirrels got into so much trouble?!?
