Westward, ho! Saddle up with brave little Fievel and his beloved family on a full-length animated adventure to the rowdy Wild West.

  • A Worthy Successor to the 1986 Original

    By Zachary Noah
    This sequel to the original 1986 Don Bluth film from Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment is the best sequel in the "American Tail" film series. It's the final film in the series to be presented by Spielberg and released theatrically, and also the first film produced by the Amblimation studio in London, England. Amblimation would later produce "We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story" in 1993 and "Balto" in 1995. The remaining two entries "The Treasure of Manhattan Island" and "The Mystery of the Night Monster" are produced by Universal Animation Studios. Phillip Glasser reprises his role as the main character Fievel, along with Nehemiah Persoff and Erica Yohn returning as Papa and Mama Mousekewitz respectively. Oh, and let's not forget the late and great Dom DeLuise portraying Tiger once again. Joining most of the original voice cast are Cathy Cavadini (the voices of Glitter in the '80s cartoon show "Kidd Video" and Blossom in the original "Powerpuff Girls") as Tanya Mouskewitz, Amy Irving as Tiger's love interest Miss Kitty, John Cleese as the conniving Cat R. Waul, Jon Lovitz as Waul's hench-spider T.R. Chula, and last but not least, the late Jimmy Stewart in his swan song film appearance as the famous Western sheriff and lawdog, Wylie Burp. Stewart passed away six years after this film originally hit the big screen. This film also features an elaborate musical score by the late James Horner, who also composed music for the first film. It also features a few musical numbers, the most well known ones being "Dreams to Dream" and my personal favorite "The Girl You Left Behind," both performed by Cathy Cavdini as Tanya. I would strongly recommend "An American Tail: Fievel Goes West" to all the fans of the original 1986 film and Western film fans alike. You won't be disappointed.
