A Whole New World

It’s “A Whole New World,” on Blu-ray that is. Disney is well known for creating timeless classics and with the new re-release of six movies on Blu-ray and DVD, they’re only continuing their legacy.

I vividly remember dancing around singing along to the soundtracks while playing dress-up and rewinding VHS tapes. Oy vey! Am I really that old? Disney magic has been around for about a decade shy of a century – longer if you take Walt’s early days into account. I am proud to have grown up amid his genius era. Thankfully, my own children now have that same opportunity. And what’s better is that we can enjoy it together, as a family. Head on over to Eighty MPH Mom to read my full review!

The Aristocats was a favorite, growing up, because the relationship between the kittens (Toulouse, Berlioz, and Marie) was just as much a rivalry as it was love. It’s true to the nature of any siblings, me and my brother included.

Pocahontas was simply amazing. It is what truly opened my mind to history and allowed me to see both sides of the story as opposed to simply taking facts from a school book. That in itself is a feat that is hard to accomplish, especially considering that I was only eight-years-old when it originally premiered. I had yet to see Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World, the sequel, but it truly is just as amazing as the first.

The Tigger Movie has got to be a favorite for everyone. The well-known gang from the “Hundred Acre Woods” tells an age old tale of how families come in all shapes and sizes.

The Rescuers & The Rescuers Down Under are true classics, with the original premiering in 1977. It took me until now to finally realize the connection between “Evinrude” the tiny dragonfly and the fact that, in the film, he acts as a propeller for a leaf boat. Nicely done, Disney, nicely done.

Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure is a lovely little continuation of the love story between “Lady” and “Tramp” that we saw in the first movie. “Scamp” is a rowdy little boy and his parents just want what is best for him. With two boys of our own, the story really hits home.

Disneynature Chimpanzee is part of the newer film label (founded in 2008) that consists of independent documentaries. This film was like a Jane Goodall movie for children and, fittingly enough, it starred her as well. If you have a little animal lover in your home, this movie will certainly be a hit.

Now, I’m still a bit behind the times watching all of these films in DVD format, but Disney released them as Blu-ray and DVD combo pack! Once we get with the times I’ll be sure to let you let you know how amazing the quality of the newer Blu-ray discs are!
