My family are HUGE Disney fans! We own just about every DVD and now that Disney is releasing their beloved movies on Blu-ray we are slowly building our stash up. This last Tueday Disney released 7 of my all time favorites on 5 awesome Blu-ray combo packs! I am absolutely ECSTATIC that we got a chance to review each of these faves.
To commemorate the 35th anniversary of an original classic, Disney proudly presents a special 2-movie collection featuring all-time family favorites, “The Rescuers” and “The Rescuers Down Under,” for the first time ever on Blu-ray! Join two of the world’s bravest mice – Bernard and Bianca – as they set out on two thrilling rescue missions full of comic adventure while soaring through the Devil’s Bayou and flying sky high in the Australian outback. Buckle up for the ride of your life as these tiny heroes with great big hearts outrun and outwit their rivals to save the day. Brimming with lovable characters and unforgettable music, the 2-movie collection is high-flying fun for the entire family! Share the laughs and excitement for the first time on Disney Blu-ray.
My boys LOVED staying up late and watching both of these movies back to back. The Blu-ray is crisp and clean and definitely makes our old DVD versions looking worn out. You can purchase The Rescuers: 35th Anniversary Edition (The Rescuers / The Rescuers Down Under) (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) on Amazon for $22.99
“The Aristocats” Special Edition is a purr-fect treat for the whole family. It includes a brand new bonus featurette “The Lost Open” with Richard Sherman taking viewers through the storyboards of a never-before-seen alternate beginning which introduces a deleted character and a deleted song “How Much You Mean To Me” and “Court Me Slowly” written and performed by the Sherman brothers. This song demo was one of the few times Richard and Robert ever sang together.
You can purchase The Aristocats (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Special Edition) for $22.99 on Amazon.
Disney’s beloved classic continues in Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure – for the first time ever on Disney Blu-ray. Lady and Tramp’s mischievous pup Scamp is always in the doghouse. Now, an itch for a collar-free life and freedom is sending him on the ultimate adventure! With nonstop laughs, paw-tapping songs and exciting bonus features, Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure is a new breed of Disney fun that the whole family will love!
We recently received Lady and the Tramp to review and the kids adored the movie so we were very excited to sit down and watch Lady and the Tramp II on Blu-ray. The kiddos LOVE these pups and I think Izzy (our new little pup) enjoyed watching them with us. It is definitely a must have for the entire family! You can pick up Lady and the Tramp 2: Scamps Adventure (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Special Edition) on Amazon for $24
Walt Disney Pictures’ action-packed animated musical adventures “Pocahontas” and “Pocahontas II: Journey To A New World” debut for the first time ever in vivid High Definition. The Two-MovieCollection, Blu-ray debut features exciting all-new bonus material including “Drawing Inspiration: The Lost Story of Hiawatha,” a fascinating behind-the-scenes featurette showcasing how Walt Disney and his team were once developing a full-length animated feature called “Hiawatha,” that ultimately directly influenced the development of “Pocahontas.”
“Pocahontas” tells the story of a free-spirited girl (voiced by Irene Bedard) who wonders what adventures wait “Just Around the River Bend.” Pocahontas – along with her playful pals Meeko the raccoon and Flit the hummingbird – relies on the guidance of her loving and wise Grandmother Willow (voice by Linda Hunt) when English settlers arrive on the shores of her village. Her meeting with the courageous Captain John Smith (voiced by Mel Gibson) leads to a friendship that bridges the gap between two cultures and changes history.
Awww Pocahontas, somewhere down our family tree someone once said we were related to Pocahontas herself, I don’t know if this is true or not but the native american blood in me absolutely adores “Pocahontas” and it’s sequel! The high definition of each of these films is fantastic, I love how the colors pop and the story is one of my all time favorites. I’m hoping my children will appreciate their heritage through these movies as well. You can purchase Pocahontas Two-Movie Special Edition (Pocahontas / Pocahontas II: Journey To A New World) (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) on Amazon for $22.99
