The critical consensus

It didn't really need the 3D, but it's still a stunning, glorious family film, with the third dimension or otherwise.

*****Helen O'Hara, Empire Online, 03/10/2011

Well worth another look.

*****Neil Smith, Total Film, 04/10/2011

Classic cartoon musical.

*****Chris Tookey, Daily Mail, 06/10/2011

It is hilarious and poignant and buoyed by one of the finest soundtracks ever to grace a cartoon.

*****Paul Greenwood, Evening Times, 06/10/2011

No one could deny its quality. But this release looks a bit cynical.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 06/10/2011

Huge fun for the kids; some acceptable laughs for the adults.

****(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 06/10/2011

Whisper it, but a few scenes might even be slightly improved. The famous four-minute opening sequence works so well, it’s astonishing to think it wasn’t planned with this technology in mind.

*****Robbie Collin, The Telegraph, 06/10/2011

The 3D technology adds some eye-popping moments but the best thing about this reissue is the chance for a new generation to see a modern classic on a cinema screen.

*****Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 07/10/2011

It's an attractive film but altogether less interesting and more conventional than the Pixar productions that now dominate Disney's animated output.
