Scott Holleran of BoxOfficeMojo reports on his recent trip to see Lady and The Tramp at the El Capitan in Hollywood.
Disney’s 50th anniversary restoration premiere of Lady and the Tramp (on DVD Feb. 28) at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre was better than expected. At next door Disney’s Soda Fountain and Studio Store, they served spaghetti and stocked the shelves with a plush cocker spaniel Lady and mutt Tramp linked by a thin strand of pasta, like the famous scene in the movie. Nobody integrates like Disney.
Scott also takes a look at the Bambi II DVD release and wants to know the answer to one question…
It’s not that Bambi II is awful—a positive theme depicts Bambi’s father, voiced by Patrick Stewart, teaching Bambi how to think for himself—and the DVD contains decent songs, features and extras. Not being atrocious isn’t saying much, and one can’t help wondering why Disney didn’t invest this money in something new and original instead.
