This is a beautiful movie, and easily one of the all-time greatest films. It's pretty close to perfect in almost every way - the visual design, the voice acting, the music, the story, the writing. A timeless and ageless classic.
One of the most touching Disney movies I've seen. Very sweet and colourful!
I cannot fathom why so many people like this and most of the stuff Disney put out during the 1990's. It's probably something that is wrong with me though. I hate everything about it, especially the music. When I watch Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi, Dumbo or Fantasia, I feel nothing but pure joy. When Disney made a comeback with Cinderella and the rest of the 50's animated features I am onboard with those as well. When I watch this, I feel embarrassed (especially during the Can You Feel the Love Tonight song, my god that is gross.)
I feel weird trashing this film as I know many here probably love it from their childhood. I just can't enjoy this though. It just probably wasn't made for me.
I just had to wait a year after this to find something to love about Disney again with Toy Story and then pretty much every Pixar film that followed.
