Project Disney: Crocodile Dundee

Following on from the success of The Little Mermaid, Disney would enter the nineties on a high. First up was the The Rescuers Down Under. This was breakthrough for a number of reasons. Firstly, it was the only time until now, a sequel would be added into the Classics canon. Secondly, and more importantly, it is the first entry to be fully constructed in a digital environment.

I didn't like 1977's The Rescuers, but this is a completely different film. The setting of the Australian outback really does bring a breathe of fresh air to the predominantly darker settings of the previous few decades. I really did like the fact they modelled McLeach on George C Scott as well as using his voice.

I have to admit, I have been struggling with this challenge. As much as I love my animated movies, I think I have been spoiled with the Pixar CGI-fests which is making some of these quite laborious. However, this one has reignited my drive to get this done.
