101 Dalmatians

It’s been said that, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”  I disagree. Diamonds are everyone’s best friend, especially when it pertains to Disney Studios’ very special Diamond Edition, Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD Combo release of its animated classic: 101 Dalmatians. 

Pongo, Perdita and their pups are back and face off against Cruella De Vil, the wicked, rich matriarch who wants a new Dalmatians fur coat.

It’s a struggle to survive as 101 Dalmatians attempt to reunite with their master and escape Cruella’s henchmen in a slapstick, hold-onto-your sides, adventure wroth with danger, laced with love and sprinkled with laughter.  

If you've not had the opportunity to see this Disney classic I encourage you to watch it in its new remastered version: clear-as-a-bell re-release.

Filled with the tried and true Disney magic the story is a real family pleaser (no need to worry about foul language or unexpected innuendos).

This is animation as it is meant to be seen in its original format-cell animation.

Disney artists pulled out all the stops with clever and often hilarious character representations (both human and animal)  Take a moment to check out the farm animal and dog representations.  Each and everyone is distinct and individual.

Cruella De Vil ranks as one of Disney's top villains. So much so that she was recreated as a real person in the live-action Dalmatian movies.

Included with Combo Pack are a new animated short taking up where the movie left off,  a special featurette about the film, conversations with the Disney team, a very special 1962 Dalmatians short and more as only Disney can provide.

The entire package is wrapped up in a special silver slip case which include a Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD that allows you to download the film to your favorite digital format player.
