31 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie when I was about... five. Then I watched it over and over again for the next few years. Eventually, my mother stopped me from borrowing it from the library so I'd hope it'd broadcast on TV and I remember watching my morning cartoons, waiting for it to come on but it never did. Eventually I forgot the name, but since it was my absolute favorite movie growing up, I searched it up with random keywords I hoped were in the title.

I really don't know why this movie has a rating of like, 5. If watched when a kid, it sets you up for an adventure and keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering if the animals will ever rescue their friend or not =P. It's a fantasy, and what kid doesn't like that? It pulls you in with a strong message and lovely story, and so I strongly recommend anyone to show this to their seven year old because It's definitely worth it.
