Everyone knows the tale of Robin Hood. Forced to be an outlaw, though always loyal to King Richard, Robin Hood fought against the usurper Prince John. Robin Hood sheltered and protected poor people and redistributed wealth from the rich to the needy poor. Robin Hood performed these deeds from his base in Sherwood Forest.
Though we have seen this movie with many different great actors, this version has excellent comedy and very good animation. Robin Hood is appropriately swashbuckling and handsome, and Maid Marian is beautiful; both characters are drawn as foxes. In fact, all the characters in this movie are animals, as Alan-A-Dale points out at the beginning of the movie.
This film has its share of great actors. Englishman Brian Bedford provides a perfect voice for Robin. Monica Evans, who also appeared in "The Odd Couple," voices Maid Marian. The role of Maid Marian was the last for Monica Evans. The incomparable Peter Ustinov ("Quo Vadis," "Blackbeard's Ghost") voices both Prince John and King Richard. Terry Thomas ("Tom Thumb," "The Abominable Dr. Phibes") is the voice of Sir Hiss. Roger Miller is the minstrel Alan-A-Dale. Miller also provided the songs for this movie. Andy Devine (who had more than 180 movie and television appearances dating back to the 1920's) voices Friar Tuck. Pat Buttram ("The Rescuers," "Back to the Future III") voices the Sheriff of Nottingham and George Lindsey ("The Rescuers," "The Andy Griffith Show") voices Trigger.
Disney has released several versions of this movie. The previous "gold" version is adequate and if you have that version and are satisfied with it, I recommend you pass on this version. If you are a first-time buyer of this film then I recommend this version because of the restored picture and the cleaner sound. Also, this film does have an alternate ending that some viewers may find interesting. The other added features are marginal in value. I find myself avoiding the extras more and more, especially on Disney DVD's.
This movie is fun to watch again and again, and is a favorite of children of all ages. I recommend this movie to anyone looking for a pleasant story to watch, and to anyone with young children.
Sound, including the wonderful music, is top-notch. Some of the Roger Miller songs are really good. Roger Miller, a country music legend, was always one of my favorite composers anyway. The sound is most definitely crisper and is in 5.1.
It was nice to hear George Lindsey's (of Andy Griffith fame) voice again since he passed about a year ago (5/6/12).
The plot follows the basic Robin Hood Myth. I felt it was a charming little tale. Someone once said to me that they considered Disney's Robin Hood 'a major minor classic' and I heartily agree. This is not in the same class as say 'Cinderella' or 'Beauty and the Beast' but few movies are.
We watched it the same day we received it as I was anxious to see what they had done to the picture, sound, etc. My wife and 21 year old daughter agreed with my assessment overall.
***I RECEIVED A ADVANCE COPY FROM A FRIEND IN THE INDUSTRY***
The rest of the disc special features were ok and that's it. I don't really care about most of this kind of stuff. IF I watch them all I only very seldom watch the material again. I generally buy the Bly-ray if I really like the movie anyway. Usually this kind of purchase, for me, is to replace a DVD or VHS copy.
Amazon prices are nearly always better than all the retail stores close to me.
I would rate this a 9.0 to 9.5 out of 10 overall with the picture a 10 out of 10.
