It seems like this film just came out last month. I’m not complaining about shorter release windows, but this seems scary fast! But hey, it was April, this summer has blown by.
Audiences were mesmerized by Disney’s live-action epic adventure “The Jungle Book,” which has earned more than $949 million at the global box office to date. Critically acclaimed, Jon Favreau’s stunning live-action reimagining of Walt Disney’s animated classic, will be available early on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on August 23, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On-Demand on August 30. Where’s my 4K HDR version?

Continue reading Blu-ray Review: Disney’s Aladdin
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.

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.
