While I have issues with Disney, I do enjoy many of their animated features. And it's a crying shame to hear that they're going to cease producing traditional 2-D animated features, and move fully to 3-D cartoons. Especially since the Disney that 'Uncle Walt' built was started on 2-D ink and paint animation. I know that Disney was intrested in the next bit of new technology, but I think moving away from traditional animation is a big mistake. There is a trailer for this final 2-D movie on the 'Little Nemo' DVD, and follow the link for some pictures from the trailer.
The Story, from what I've been able to dig up on-line, is set in the old west. And the original title was 'Sweating Bullets', but the name was changed when the character of 'Bullets' the Bull was dropped from the film. Frankly it's probably good they dropped the character/name. Because 'Sweating Bullets' is pretty darn cheesy. Here's the most detailed plot synopsis I could find:
"Home on the Range is the story of a family farm inhabited by a widow (Parker), her young daughter, and various and sundry farm animals. The widow owes a $1,000.00 mortgage on the farm and has no way to pay for it, and the cows get wind of the trouble. Fearing that they'll be sold to the local meat- packing plant, the cows, led by Dame Judi Dench (!) seek to find a way to earn the money. Enter the family horse, played by Cuba Gooding, Jr. He used to belong to a bounty hunter, and knows a great way to save the farm. You see, he's heard that in the nearby town, there's a bandit afoot (Randy Quaid), with a $1,000.00 bounty on his head."
It stars the voice talents of Roseanne (Talk about Typecasting ), Dame Judi Dench, Jennifer Tilly, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Randy Quaid.
