Disney Animated Canon Entry #47
Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
An undeservedly forgotten film that signaled the end of Disney Animation's third "Dark Age" before The Princess and the Frog made it official. The film's utopian-esque future setting, charming oddball characters, and refreshing optimistic tone make it quite enjoyable to watch even though the finished product is still a little rough around the edges. The film's only notable problem is an intentional or not Freudian/oedipal scene which will either bother viewers or it won't (it didn't bug me). If you skipped over this Disney flick when it was released, I strongly encourage you to give it a watch.
