Well, it’s long overdue methinks, I’ve decided to make a thread for what I feel is easily Disney’s most under rated film, if not the most under rated film ever.
The Fox and the Hound is not only my favourite Disney film, it’s my favourite film of all time without question. It had such a powerful, strong message regarding prejudice and was a friendship story that didn’t ram its morale down your throat and for the most part didn’t need to address it with dialogue, and it showed the darkside (not that there is a good side) that hunters have on wildlife and the environment in which they live.
It’s also one of the only Disney movies that doesn’t have a traditional happy ending to the best of my knowledge, as the prejiduce/seperation that pulls Tod and Copper apart does ultimatley stop each them from seeing each other, even if they do set their differences aside in the end.
I had only one problem with the film and it was minor. I do wish that Tod and Vixie had spent a bit more time with each other interacting in the film. I don’t feel their relathionship was under developed, it came off more as two people who had a crush on each other trying it out than anything which was a good starting point, I just wanted to see more of it and see it develop further, which is I want one day to see a TRUE sequel to this film, but I digress.
So, who else loves this film? ^^ Or if you didn’t love/like it, what did you think of it and why?
