It’s time for me to finally watch Disney’s Aladdin now that the classic animated film is available in glorious HD on Disney’s awesome MoviesAnywhere platform. If you are old school like me and prefer physical media it hits Blu-ray, October 13th. The Blu-ray/HD is packed with all the standard features we expect from a Disney release – sing along tracks, a look at the Broadway production, extras from the original DVD release and more. The Blu-ray w/Digital Copy and the Digital Copy version are $19.99. Wait two weeks and get the blu-ray version, it’s a no brainer.
Oh my god, heck has frozen over! Star Wars will be available on Digital HD! Not in some far off Galaxy, but this Friday? Whaaaaa???? Today is the day for me to say “I Hate Myself.” I’m getting sucked into the dumb iWatch hype and now this? Maybe I do have more money than sense. I mean really, I already have these burned in Letterbox AND Full Screen HD, as well as the Han Shot First Bitches SD Version. But I want the official version and I love Disney’s Movies Anywhere, buy this once and it’ll be available across multiple platforms including UV with bonus material. This set will include most of the bonus content from the recent Blu-ray release and two new features. The bundle is available for pre-order on Vudu for $89. I don’t see the bundle listed on iTunes yet – just the individual titles for $19.99 each, but I’m sure it’ll be available as a iTunes bundle later today.
Here are some clips for next week’s Into The Woods Blu-ray release.
I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about Into The Woods. It has some fun moments, but I don’t think I’m a fan of the music and man does it go dark. Looking forward to revisiting it when it comes to High-Definition next week. I’ll have a full review of the Blu-ray sometime next week. In the meantime check out this trailer for the film. Highlights include:
- Meryl Streep singing a never before heard Sondheim song “She’ll Be Back”
- Several making of featurettes
- A commentary track from Director Rob Marshall and Producer John DeLuca
- A sing along option
- And of course Disney’s excellent Movies Anywhere digital copy.
Disney’s 1961 classic animated cartoon 101 Dalmatians gets a fresh coat of paint in a brand new Diamond Edition Blu-ray set.
Maleficent got a prick and fell asleep at the Box Office, will the Blu-ray release wake up the sales? Ok, I tried my best a clever metaphor and failed. What can you do? Maleficent is now available on all your home video platforms.
If there’s one company that knows how to do a decent Direct to Home Video sequel it is Disney, they have mastered the art. Their latest Jungle Book 2, manages to maintain most of the things we love about the original while giving viewers an update on what our favorite characters are up to.
One of my favorite films of 2013, the criminally unappreciated Saving Mr. Banks is finally available on glorious Blu-ray.
Having grossed over $1 billion in worldwide box office, it’s safe to say Frozen is Disney’s biggest hits in years. It is now available in glorious Blu-ray for your home viewing pleasure.
