A Disney masterpiece for the ages. A fantastic achievement and one of the few animated films that feels more life-like than not. Featuring the ‘ingredients’ of a Disney classic: memorable music, lovable characters, a great story, and brilliant animation, it is no wonder that it was the first animated feature ever to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. Simply put, a film that will be admired and loved for a long long time.
