Great movie, great message
The story is, of course, prophetic and was ahead of its time originally. The movie is now super contemporary with its environmental message. The music is great, the animation is super fun, and the message is so important.
Includes some danger for the main character as he is stuck on a racing river, but he's fine in the end. When he loses his way, he begins to take his new animal friends for granted and his horrible family who comes to town are very money driven and are mean to the animals and disrespect the forest. As the story goes- there is lots of cutting down trees until they are all gone, the animals have to leave because there is no habitat for them left.
The movie is clever for adults too. The "bad guy" O'Hare is greedy and evil but there is not outright violence.
There is too much romance for the age- the young present-day character is "in love" with the girl next door and there is a bit too much of that story line. But overall, it's a great movie with a great message and music.
