I’ve been waiting for this set for a long, long time! The Rescuers Down Under has been one of my favorite animated films for years with great characters and beautiful artwork. To have it digitally AND together with the original The Rescuers is a wonderful treat. The bonus features for The Rescuers really gives a feeling of the era it was created in. The bonus feature for The Rescuers Down Under shows a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at the thought and effort put into traditional hand-drawn animation.
To commemorate the 35th anniversary of an original classic, Disney proudly presents a special 2-movie collection featuring all-time family favorites, “The Rescuers” and “The Rescuers Down Under,” for the first time ever on Blu-ray! Join two of the world’s bravest mice – Bernard and Bianca – as they set out on two thrilling rescue missions full of comic adventure while soaring through the Devil’s Bayou and flying sky high in the Australian outback. Buckle up for the ride of your life as these tiny heroes with great big hearts outrun and outwit their rivals to save the day.
Bob Newhart (“Elf”) as the voice of Bernard and Eva Gabor (“Green Acres”) as the voice of Miss Bianca
