Comes from a place that genuinely respects and loves dogs for being dogs and cats for being cats.

Audience Reviews for The Incredible Journey


I never even knew this original movie existed when I watched Homeward Bound as a kid, but seeing it now was really enjoyable. It had almost a nature film quality and the things they got the animals to do were really cool.

Super Reviewer


The Incredible Journey is one of my favorite live action Disney movies. It has a heartfelt story, and the dogs and cat are great. I think my rating would've been higher if I'd seen this movie before Homeward Bound, however. But a great movie that I'd recommend to anybody.
