G-Force DVD Trailer and Extras

If you missed Disney’s G-Force in theaters I can understand. It’s not exactly a film in the classic Disney mold. But it does have heart and a plot that actually drives a story line.

Below the cut I’ve included a short preview video with John Travolta and Miley Cyrus that includes a clip from the movie:
