One of my favorite films as a child, it doesn’t hold up on the whole, though the few standout songs still are great. The story is a bit tedious and you again get a Disney protagonist that is pretty bland, especially in comparisons to their surroundings. Perhaps this is intentional, a kind of straight-man for the children to identify with, but it doesn’t make great viewing as an adult.
