Wholesome, charming and touching. Great film. 'The Journey of Natty Gann' is an excellent adventure drama. This absolutely flies through its 101 minute run time, that's mostly - though not entirely - thanks to how well paced the film is. It never stays in one spot for too long, which makes it entertaining. It doesn't sacrifice any character development by doing that either. Meredith Salenger portrays the titular character. She is fantastic, from start-to-finish. A terrific debut! A young John Cusack makes an appearance, he is good in the role of Harry. You also have Ray Wise involved as Sol. All three of those add a lot to the production, credit to 'em. The wolfdog, Jed, is adorable too. A real sweet, but also fun, film from Disney; it's into my live-action top five from them; of the ones I've watched at this point, up until 1985.
