Disney’s The BFG on Digital HD, Blu-ray™ and Disney Movies Anywhere Dec. 6

This month, the world celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Roald Dahl, beloved children’s author of family favorites like “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “James and the Giant Peach,” “Matilda” and Dahl’s personal favorite, “The BFG,” as well as World Dream Day, an annual event honoring “the dreamer, visionary and innovator in all of us.” It seems a fitting time to announce the in-home release of “The BFG,” Disney’s fantasy adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg, on Dec. 6 on Digital HD, Blu-ray™, Disney Movies Anywhere, DVD and On-Demand.
As dreamers around the globe gear up for Sunday’s World Dream Day, an annual holiday honoring “the dreamer, visionary and innovator in all of us,” it seems a fitting time to announce the in-home release of “The BFG,” Disney’s fantasy adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg and featuring a dream-collecting Big Friendly Giant. This heartwarming tale for the whole family arrives home for the holidays on Dec. 6 on Digital HD, Blu-ray™, Disney Movies Anywhere, DVD and On-Demand.
“The BFG” unites the talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg – to bring to life the classic tale of a courageous little girl named Sophie (newcomer Ruby Barnhill) and a gentle and charming Big Friendly Giant (Oscar®-winner Mark Rylance) who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. Spielberg employs a new, hybrid style of filmmaking blending live-action and performance-capture techniques, resulting in genuine, heartfelt performances and super-photorealistic animation.
Families and fans will be swept away by this spectacular adventure and delight in extensive bonus features, including a behind-the-scenes look at the making of “The BFG” hosted by Ruby Barnhill and featuring Steven Spielberg; a charming, all-new short; a fun and whimsical tutorial on the Big Friendly Giant’s unique language of Gobblefunk; a touching tribute to screenwriter Melissa Mathison (“E.T. the Extraterrestrial,” “The Black Stallion”); and more.
Spielberg’s directorial debut with The Walt Disney Studios was a labor of love, as he’s been a fan of Dahl’s for years. In fact, he read “The BFG” to his own children when they were younger. According to Spielberg, “It’s a story about friendship; it’s a story about loyalty and protecting your friends; and it’s a story that shows that even a little girl can help a big giant solve his biggest problems.” “The BFG” is a Golden Phizzwizard* come true for Spielberg, Dahl fans and audiences around the world.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast- 25th Anniversary Edition

Tale as old as time. True as it can be. Barely even friends. Then somebody bends. Unexpectedly.  These 25 syllables instantly bring to mind a Disney classic. (admit it–you just sang those words in your head) Disney’s Beauty and the Beast was originally released in 1991, yet it stands the test of time.  Both children and adults are drawn to this classic fairy tale of a young woman looking for more adventure and romance in her life, and the beast that shows her you can’t judge a book by its cover after all.

The music is amazing and the animation, especially the ballroom scene, is breathtaking.  Whether you have seen the movie once or 20 times, the 25th Anniversary edition will literally have you dancing in your living room.  In fact, you may never look at your dishes the same way again.  The bonus features included in the Blu-ray are outstanding.  I had a fangirl moment for sure with Alan Menken, Stephen Schwartz, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Robert Lopez and Lin Manuel-Miranda all in the same room together!  I seriously could watch Menken & Friends:25 Years of Musical Inspiration over and over again.  (In fact, if Disney could make a full length feature with this group I would greatly appreciate it.)

The Recording Sessions gives a peek behind the scenes with the voices of Beauty and Beast. #1074:Walt, Fairy Tales & Beauty and the Beast takes us into the Disney Studio Archives to learn the history of this story and how Walt and the animators of the past inspired the modern animation of today.  I have been lucky enough to tour the Disney Studios in California so I love seeing this historical footage.  Disney’s Beauty and the Beast-25th Anniversary Edition on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD is a masterpiece that fans of all ages will adore.  Whether you connect to Belle, the Beast or even Gaston, you will love this classic tale as old as time.

Marvel CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Collector’s Edition Review

It is official.  My new favorite Marvel movie is Captain America:Civil War.  This action packed super hero movie has everything anyone could ever want.. awesome fight scenes, interesting story lines, unexpected twists and turns, and humor.

In Captain America:Civil War we get to see what is going on with the Avengers-Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Falcon, and Hawkeye.  The Avengers are in some trouble with the government because of the destruction that follows them after a battle.  After all, who pays to rebuild the cities that are destroyed in their wake? Aren’t they responsible for injuring citizens as “collateral damage”?  These are some of the questions that lead to the “civil war” between our heroes.  We are also treated to some other famous Marvel characters that add some new dimensions to the story.  (I am not going to ruin the surprise for you-although the Collector’s Edition cover will give a few away.)

The Captain America: Civil War Collector’s Edition comes with the Blu-Ray in 3D, a Blu-Ray, and a Digital HD copy. We are lucky enough to have a 3D big screen television so it was like my favorite heroes were actually in my house! Watching it in my basement with 3D goggles on might seem extreme to some casual fans, but these are THE Avengers, people!  They are at their best when they can come to life in 3D! The Blu-Ray pack includes the feature film and some awesome bonus features.  You simply cannot scroll past the bonus United We Stand, Divided We Fall-The Making of Captain America: Civil War Part 1 & Part 2. I just love watching the interviews with the actors and directors.  We also get to see behind the scenes with fight choreography and how all of the computer simulations are made to look so real on the big screen.  There is also the fan-favorite Gag Reel, an exclusive sneak peek of Marvel’s Doctor Strange, deleted scenes, and an in-depth look at the evolution of Captain America and Iron Man.

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War Collector’s Edition is an absolute must-have if you love Marvel as much as I do.  I believe this is the best Marvel movie yet.  I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
