On February 1, 2011, Disney fans young and old will be able to delight in Walt Disney’s classic re-telling of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.” And just in case you’re thinking, “Hey, this already came out,” think again. This is Alice as you have never seen it before. The creative wizards at Disney have re-mastered the classic and presented the magic in stunning blu-ray. The classic story is just how you know and love it; however, the richness of the colors and the textures will blow you away and take you further into Alice’s world than you have ever been before.
In addition to the stunning presentation of the classic film, Disney has provided a variety of unique viewing options along with some rare animated gems and a fun family game. Not only can you choose to watch the movie the regular way, but Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland” on blu-ray provides you with the option to watch it in Disney View. For those of you who have ever been to the old style theaters such as the El Capitan Theater (http://elcapitan.go.com/) in Hollywood, CA, it is very reminiscent of that style. The film plays with beautifully detailed side bars as opposed to the standard black spaces seen on today’s larger screen televisions. In fact, we viewed the film both ways and really preferred Disney View to the standard option.
Another viewing mode is actually seen by accessing the “Through The Keyhole: A Companion’s Guide to Wonderland.” This version actually plays the movie on half of the screen while playing interviews, classic illustrations, and historic pictures on the other side. This mode is for the true history or Disney history buff or someone who just wants a new way to view an old classic. It provides intricate detail about Lewis Carroll and his story along with information about how Walt and his crew brought the film to the big screen. For example, did you know that in the original version of the movie, the author’s name is misspelled on the title screen? This is just one of the interesting little tidbits you will pick up from this viewing companion.
The combo pack includes a blu-ray copy and a dvd copy of the film. The features from the prior dvd release are still on the disc and they have included some footage from pencil tests and reference footage. Ever wonder what the real Alice looked like? Well, you will get to see and hear her on this version! And we cannot forget the Painting the Roses Red puzzle game that will delight the entire family. It is not just one of those random point and click games. This is actually a puzzle game where you must complete each level before you can unlock the subsequent level.
Finally, being fans of previews, we cannot forget the sneak peeks. On this disk you will get a glimpse at the (wait for it), new “Winnie the Pooh” movie. That’s right. We are not talking about a re-make or a side story. This is a whole new feature film about your favorite honey-hungry bear. Along with this tantalizing teaser are “Bambi” on blu-ray, “Dumbo” on blu-ray, “The Incredibles” on blu-ray, “Tangled,” and “Spooky Buddies.”
If you are looking to reminisce with an old classic or share a Disney classic with a new audience, you will not be disappointed with “Alice in Wonderland” on blu-ray.
