My Take on the Movies
I cannot believe that these movies started coming out 35 years ago already, can it really be that long ago? You would not know it by watching this movie, as the story line, action, villains and cartooning are classic and timeless and you will want to share this on and on with your own children as well as with future generations to come. Both of these movies were amazing and the quality of the movies included in this are stellar and of such high quality. I highly recommend this to any fan of Disney, but also to anyone who simply loves a story of friendship, bravery and commitment as these are all themes you can find in both movies!
