This Tuesday, August 9th, two of Disney’s most beloved classics make their way to Blu Ray for the first time! Coming out of the Disney vault is Walt Disney’s 24th animated feature, The Fox & the Hound. The original release (which came out in 1981) featured the voices of Mickey Rooney, Corey Feldman, and Kurt Russell and it’s sequel includes some country all-stars like Reba McEntire and Trisha Yearwood (Fox and the Hound 2 also features the voice talents of Patrick Swayze and Lucas Grabeel).
The Fox & the Hound and it’s sequel will be available as a 3 disc blu ray combo pack which will include 1 blu ray with both films, as well as The Fox & the Hound on DVD, and The Fox & the Hound 2 on DVD. Additionally, you can instead purchase the 2 disc DVD combo pack which does not include the blu ray disc.
The story of friendship blooming in the most unconventional place, is a great addition to any Disney collection. (And the Fox & the Hound sequel is one of my personal favorites!) Join Todd and Copper as they become ‘the best of friends’ and make some hard decisions on what true friendship really means.
The special features will keep you and your family entertained for hours! The DVDs offer a sing-a-long, ‘Making of’ featurette, music video, and a music featurette. On the blu yay you will additionally find a montage of real life unlikely animal friends (this is really cute)!
In celebration of The Fox & the Hound’s 30th anniversary this 2 disc set is sure to be a family favorite, with digitally remastered film and sound!
