The Rescuers Down Under is a 1990 American animated adventure film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Distribution on November 16, 1990. The 29th film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics, the film is the sequel (Disney's first for an animated feature) to the 1977 Disney animated film The Rescuers, which was based on the novels of Margery Sharp.
This film, along with Fantasia 2000 and Winnie the Pooh are the only Disney sequels that are part of the Disney canon, as all three were produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. It was the second film released during the Disney Renaissance (1989–1999) era, which had begun the year before with The Little Mermaid. Set in the Australian Outback, The Rescuers Down Under was Eva Gabor's final film role before her retirement from acting in 1994 and death in 1995.
