The Rescuers Down Under is a 1990 American animated adventure film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures on November 16, 1990. The 29th Disney animated feature film, the film is the sequel to Walt Disney Productions' 1977 animated film The Rescuers, which was based on the novels of Margery Sharp. Set in the Australian Outback, the film centers on Bernard and Bianca traveling to Australia to save a boy named Cody from a villainous poacher in pursuit of an endangered bird of prey.


In the Australian Outback, a young boy named Cody rescues and befriends a rare golden eagle called Marahute, who shows him her nest and eggs. Later on, he falls into an animal trap set by Percival C. McLeach, a local poacher wanted by the Australian Rangers. When McLeach finds one of Marahute's feathers in Cody's backpack, he realizes he knows the eagle's location, and reveals he killed another, Marahute's mate. McLeach throws Cody's backpack to a float of crocodiles to trick the Rangers into thinking that Cody was eaten, and kidnaps him, intent on extracting Marahute's whereabouts.
