March Releases from Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Walt Disney Home Entertainment has released an array of classics old and new that will sure to delight fans and collectors alike.
With the box office success of “Race to With Mountain” Disney has released remastered versions of the original films, “Escape to Witch Mountain” and “Return From Witch Mountain” . Both films tell the story of gifted brother and sister Tony and Tia as they struggle to learn their true nature in the first film and return to Earth in the second film only to become a pawn of a group of criminals. The charming adventure films were favorites of mine when I was a child and now thanks to the new sets, they are available for a new generation to discover. The impressive sets offer pop up facts, lost interviews, and more. The films feature such legendary performers as Eddie Albert, Donald Pleasance, Bette Davis, and Christopher Lee. As an added bonus each DVD comes with a code that enables the purchaser to a free ticket to see “Race to Witch Mountain”.
“Lilo and “Stitch” IS back in an impressive 2 Disc Big Wave edition that adds even more fun to the tale of the Hawaiian Lilo, and the runaway genetic experiment Stitch. The charming story of loyalty and friendship is even better with deleted scenes, music video, games, and features making this selection a true modern classic.
There is no doubting that Pinocchio is one of the most enduring and popular films of all time. The charming story of the puppet who longs to be a real boy is back in the 70th Anniversary release on DVD and Blu Ray. The set features never before seen deleted scenes, an alternate ending, trivia, commentaries, documentaries and much more. The very impressive visuals of the film are amazing on Blu Ray and shows that this timeless classic shows no signs of slowing down.
“BOLT” features the voice talents of John Travolta and Miley Cyrus and tells the story of Bolt, the star of a hit television show who is convinced that everything he has done is real. When a mix up separates Bolt from his owner, he must find his way home with the help of his new friends and courage. The film is on Blu Ray and standard DVD and offeres loads of bonus materials such as shorts, a music video, deleted scenes, behind the scenes and more.
“The Boy In the Striped Pajamas” is a touching film that tells the story of a friendship between two young boys who are on opposite sides of World War II. When one of the boys learns that his new friend is a Jew being held in a camp commanded by his father he is forbidden to speak to the child. The moving film will not soon be forgotten and is a true triumph of cinema.
Included deleted scenes and bonus materials.
