Trivia

This was originally intended by MGM to be a theatrical release for 1996, but had been delayed because of the commercial failure of All Dogs Go to Heaven 2 (1996), and eventually released straight to video in 1997. See more »

I loved this movie when I was little!
22 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I find some of the comments on here ridiculous. Are we really comparing this to the Exorcist?! REALLY? I'm sorry, but there isn't a child's movie out there that doesn't have a villain or an evil character. Otherwise, there'd be no point to it. I watched this when I was very little, and loved it. In fact, it was a favorite of mine. And my childhood wasn't "destroyed" or whatever you all are saying. I loved the songs and the characters. It's fun, and I recommend it for anyone. A great family movie. Kids will enjoy it, I can promise you that. In fact, I'm on this page today because I remembered how much I loved it, and I wanted to watch it again. But the reviews shocked me, and I had to comment.
