Silly trivia about this movie:
It was the first movie put out with the 'Disney' name on it with a PG rating. All Disney movies 'til then were rated G. Other non-G films put out by the company at the time were under the 'Buena Vista Pictures' name.
It had one of the earliest instances of actual computer graphics used in a mainstream film.
Maximillian scared the behoosis out of me when I was 11. I never quite understood the movie, and on rewatching it several years ago, it still doesn't make any sense.
