Walt Disney Studios has released their schedule for films to be released on DVD in 2014, and it contains a mixture of classic favorites and new projects.
Here are the dates to mark in your calendar:
February 11 – The Jungle Book: Diamond Edition
For the first time ever, this classic movie will be available on Blu-ray in high definition. The release will also feature new behind-the-scenes bonus features. It will be available in a Blu-ray combo pack, regular DVD, and digital formats. Save up to 30% by pre-ordering today.
March 18 – Frozen
Of course, Disney’s newest animated hit will hit the shelves in Spring 2014. If you pre-order the blu-ray DVD combo box, you can save 49% off the retail price. Can’t beat that deal.
March 11 – Winnie the Pooh: Springtime With Roo
Just in time for Spring and Easter, this film is being released on digital high definition and Blu-ray for the first time. There is also a never-before-seen bonus treat on this release.
March 18 – The Jungle Book II
To go with last month’s release of the original, this sequel has been digitally mastered and is on Blu-ray format for the first time. It will also be released in regular DVD and digital formats.
March 18 – Devious Maids: The Complete First Season
From Executive Producer Marc Cherry, creator of Desperate Housewives, comes Devious Maids. Meet five women bonded together by their jobs, their dreams and the dirt they sweep under the rug. The cast features Ana Ortiz, Roselyn Sanchez, and Susan Lucci. This box set will be in regular DVD format.
April 1 – The Pirate Fairy
From the world of Peter Pan comes “The Pirate Fairy,” centered on Zarina, a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated by Blue Pixie Dust and its endless possibilities. When Zarina gets into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock. Tinker Bell and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates. Tom Hiddleston, Christina Hendricks, and Mae Whitman contribute voices to this animated adventure.
October – Sleeping Beauty: The Diamond Edition
No exact date was included with this announcement, but this October, this classic film has been fully restored with new picture and sound on Blu-ray. Heralded by audiences and critics alike, Sleeping Beauty was one of the final fairy tales to be that Walt Disney himself worked on, and this release will also feature new bonus features that will enhance the enjoyment of owning this.
On this list, do you see any must-haves? For me, definitely The Jungle Book and Sleeping Beauty Diamond Editions.
