On the back cover of the new Diamond edition Blu Ray you will find a quote from a Time magazine reviewer, “A winner that delights every new generation of children.” Not only does Richard Corliss have it right, but I have yet to meet anyone that doesn’t like this movie young and old alike. There is something magical about this movie even before it was remastered for the HD edition.
There are 2 different editions of this new Diamond Edition Lady & the Tramp, the 2 disc combo pack which comes with Blu Ray and DVD and the 3 disc edition that comes additionally with a digital copy of the film.
Let me start by saying this film looks stunning and sounds sensational. Who would have ever thought that a movie almost 50 years old could have been remastered to look so magnificent. You will have trouble seeing or hearing a single flaw, as Disney magic shines right into your living room.
As if the quality of this classic film weren’t enough there are tons of bonus features! It has a Disney Second Screen option with iPad and laptops as well as an optional introduction from Diane Disney Miller and audio commentary. Additionally there is a really great featurette called “Diane Disney Miller: Remembering Dad” which you can watch on the DVD or Blu Ray and is a must for Walt Disney fans. This focuses on Walt’s apartment over the Disneyland firehouse and Diane’s memories from when her father was working on this film. The Blu Ray & DVD also both feature a children’s feature that is called PuppyPedia and helps identify the breeds found in the film.
The Blu Ray additionally has three deleted scenes (played out through storyboard), a never-before-heard song written during the original creation of the film called “I’m Free as a Breeze”. And as if these aren’t enough to have you spending hours watching this movie, there are additional featurettes about the making of Lady & the Tramp (specifically focusing on Lady and then Siamese Cats).
As if being an amazing copy of a classic film, have discs filled with special features and viewing options weren’t enough there are also lots of Sneak Peaks including the sequel’s upcoming Blu Ray release and other titles from the Walt Disney family of companies.
