UltimateDisney.com's Top 30 Live Action Disney Movies Countdown
30. Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey (1993)

Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey is an incredible film. Although I haven’t seen it in ages (largely due to Disney’s refusal to bring it out in a nice 1.85:1 widescreen DVD in Region 1 despite having released a properly framed laserdisc version and a correct DVD in other regions), my memories of the movie are wonderful. It’s exciting, epic and emotional. As an owner of no less than seven pets over the years, all of whom I love very much, Chance, Shadow and Sassy’s extreme and utter devotion to their human masters is especially touching, in the same vein as The Brave Little Toaster and the Toy Story movies. This is a superb film that deserves much more than its current treatment on DVD.

There have been very few movies that allow one to enter a dog's psyche and get to know what they're thinking. Generally, live-action animal movies are not that good, but Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey is one of those rare exceptions. The classic children's story is combined with top-notch voice talents provided by Michael J. Fox (as the endearing Chance), Sally Field (as Sassy the cat), and Don Ameche (as the wise Shadow). You end up rooting for the characters and hoping that everything turns out well in the end. By the end of the movie, I was in tears.

DVD Details
• One of Disney's first and weakest DVD releases, Homeward Bound is presented only in Pan & Scan, and contains only a trailer, the most basic extra that Disney now consistently leaves off discs.
