In this heartwarming family-oriented adventure from Disney, an adorable orphan named Napoleon (Johnny Whitaker) is sent to live on his grandfather's Oregon farm. There he is befriended by a college student (Michael Douglas) who has come to the spread to work as a goat herder during the summer. One day a traveling circus comes to town and before it leaves, the lion trainer gives the grandfather an aging lion named Major to care for. This makes Napoleon happy until his grandpa suddenly dies. Not wanting to be sent to an orphanage, the boy convinces the goat herder to help him bury the old man. The goat boy then returns to the wilderness while the youngster and his lion try to get by. Eventually the authorities get wind of the death and come to investigate. The boy panics, and he and the lion set off into the wilds to find the goat herder. A young girl named Samantha (Jody Foster making her feature film debut) joins them and they have many exciting adventures.

Napoleon and Samantha is the most loveable and sweet movie that I ever saw, it makes you want to cry when Napoleon looses Grandfather forever and Napoleon finds Danny played by Michael Douglas who so cute in this movie and Danny helps bury Napoleon's Grandfather and had a little funeral and Danny wanted to stay with Napoleon and Samantha asked Napoleon to stay with her and the maid. Napoleon, Samantha and Major the lion went to Danny's cabin and stayed with him.
