In Australia, the young boy Cody discovers that Percival McLeach has captured a giant eagle, Marahute. He manages to set her free only to be kidnapped himself, and later to see her recaptured. A frantic call for help goes out to the Rescue Aid Society, which sends the intrepid Bernard and Miss Bianca to help. They are aided by Wilbur from Albatross Air Lines, and in Australia are joined by Jake and frill-necked lizard Frank, in trying to outwit McLeach and save Marahute.

TRIVIA

This film was the first Disney
animated classic essentially to be a sequel.

The production required over 415 artists and technicians. Five key members of the animation team made a trip to Australia and came back with photograph of Ayers Rock, Katherine Gorge, and Kakadu National Park.

This was the first Disney animated film to use computer technology to take the place of the Xerox process and the hand painting of cels.

The film was released on video in 1991.
