Disney fans, it’s time to make room on your shelf for two Disney titles both set for release on Blu-ray this February 27th! Lady and the Tramp will be joining the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection, and you’ll also be able to get Coco on Blu-ray that same day!
Lady and the Tramp
Lady and the Tramp was one of my favorite movies to watch as a kid, so I’m excited to share it with my kids, too! This new release is loaded with three versions of the film, classic bonus material, and three all-new features.
The Walt Disney Signature Collection edition offers three exciting ways to watch Lady and the Tramp – the original theatrical version, sing-along mode and Walt’s story meetings – both Digitally and via the Multi-screen Edition (formerly the Blu-ray Combo Pack). The Multi-screen Edition includes Blu-ray, DVD and a Digital copy, giving in-home consumers the flexibility to watch the film on different devices.
As one of the greatest love stories ever told, Lady and the Tramp is sure to melt the hearts of generations with its beloved characters, brilliant animation, memorable music and sweet sentiment. The animated treasure tells the story of Lady, a lovingly pampered cocker spaniel, and Tramp, a freewheeling mutt with a heart of gold. Through the Signature Collection edition, viewers can relive the pair’s thrilling adventures, sing along with the film’s unforgettable songs like “Bella Notte,” and swoon over one of the most memorable movie moments of all time – the iconic scene in which Lady and Tramp share a plate of spaghetti and an accidental kiss.
Lady and the Tramp is the sixth title to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection, which includes groundbreaking films created or inspired by the imagination and legacy of Walt Disney, featuring timeless stories and characters that have touched generations. The film takes its place alongside “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pinocchio,” “Bambi” and “The Lion King.”
The new bonus features are pretty great, too! They include:
- Walt & His Dogs – Through archival recordings and photos, hear the tales of the dogs Walt Disney owned and loved over his lifetime.
- Stories from Walt’s Office – Take a tour of Walt’s office suite on the Studio lot, carefully re-created to look just as it did when he occupied it.
- How to Make a Meatball and Other Fun Facts About “Lady and The Tramp” – Watch a delicious lesson on how to make perfect meatballs with teen chef Amber Kelley and Oh My Disney Show Host Alexys Gabrielle.
Of course, previous bonus features are also included in this new collection – watch Diane Disney Miller share memories of her father and Disneyland’s early days, listen to “I’m Free as the Breeze,” a song originally meant to be sung by Tramp, and view three deleted scenes.
You can also celebrate one of the best reviewed films of the year and Golden Globe Awards winner for Best Animated Feature when Coco arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on February 27th. With extensive bonus materials spanning from deleted scenes to story research in Mexico to designing the world of the Land of the Dead, the whole family will find hours of content to enjoy!
I had no idea Coco was so critically acclaimed – besides the Golden Globe Award, it also topped the domestic box office Thanksgiving holiday weekend and became the highest grossing film of all time in Mexico! I’m looking forward to sharing this one with my kids, too!
In Disney•Pixar’s Coco, Pixar Animation Studios’ 19th feature film, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt) – despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music.
