Great news for man and man-cubs alike – The Jungle Book is being released from the Disney vault for the first time in almost seven years! Watch for it to swing onto the fabulous Blu-ray Diamond Edition – beginning February 11, 2014.
This is the same wonderful classic story that we know and love. It follows young Mowgli on a fun-filled journey with all his unforgettable friends – like Bagheera the panther, jazzy King Louie, and the cuddly bear, Baloo. It will include those swinging, toe-tapping songs such as “I Wan’na Be Like You” and Academy Award®-nominated classic “The Bare Necessities”. (I have very fond memories of my kids in diapers dancing and singing to these songs!) The Jungle Book remains a tried and true classic because it is so much fun. The February release date is perfect because – just like a sweet Valentine – it reminds us of “The Bare Necessities” of life and the true meaning of friendship.
The Jungle Book has always held a special place in my heart because it is the last Disney movie to have Walt’s own personal touch. Most Disney fans agree – this is a fantastic film that has held it’s charm – even after all of these years. This time around we will be able to enjoy it even more, thanks to the ultimate in high definition picture and sound clarity that this new edition offers. Perhaps more than anything, most Disney fans are looking forward to seeing the groundbreaking, state-of-the-art immersive bonus content that you will only find on this Diamond Edition DVD. It’s all made possible because of the awesome Blu-ray technology…and what better way is there to get your Baloo – than on Blu-ray?
