Storyline

Cody, a 9-year-old boy from Mugwomp Flats responds to a distress call about a trapped giant Golden Eagle called Marahute. Freeing her, he gains a close friendship with the bird. However, Cody is soon abducted by the murderous poacher, Percival McLeach, who is after that bird which is of a highly endangered species and therefore an extremely profitable quarry. In a panic, a mouse Cody freed from one of McLeach's traps sends a desperate call for help to the Rescue Aid Society in New York City who assigns their top agents, Miss Bianca and Bernard, to the task. With transportation provided by the goofy albatross, Wilbur, the agents arrive in Australia and link up with the RAS' local field operative, Jake the Kangaroo Rat. Together, the trio must race against time to find Cody, stop McLeach, and save Marahute. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Goofs

After Cody gets caught by Percival McLeach and fails to free his animal friends. His animal friends remain in their cages and chain collars are left behind there in McLeachs hideout. The animals left behind in cages include Red the kangaroo, Frank the lizard, Polly the platypus, Krebbs the koala bear. It's unknown if Cody, Bernard, Bianca, Jake stopped by McLeachs hideout to free the animals. Or if they go back to pick up Wilbur who's watching over the eagles eggs. Also the ending with Cody reuniting with his mom at his house is missing from the movie. See more »

Quotes

McLeach: [dangling Cody over a river of crocodiles] Are ya ready, boy? It's time ya learned how to fish for crocs. They like it when you use live bait, and you're as live as they come.

I love this movie. I saw the original on the cinema when it was re-released and then of course saw this. It is in my opinion the only decent sequel Disney has ever made.(2D animation anyway, Toy Story 2 is superb) All the others have been straight-to-video and terrible. (Lady and the Tramp 2/Pocahontas 2 etc) The animation in Down Under is superb, the voice talent outstanding, and the villain in the shape of John McCleach very very funny. There are no songs, and actually, you don't notice the lack of them. I think it works better. The best line in the film has to be McCleachs' boast: "I didn't make it all the way through third grade for nothing!"
