Disney Opens The Vault And Brings Dumbo To Blu-Ray

By David Wharton 2011-04-29 20:17:20
Once again the gatekeepers at the House of Mouse have thrown open the ponderous doors of the Disney vault and brought forth a new treasure. And this time, it's a movie about a flying elephant. Yes, Dumbo is fast approaching its 70th anniversary, and so Disney has sent out word that the airborne pachyderm is headed for high-definition. And somewhere, my wife just began doing a silly little dance of joy.

The Dumbo (70th Anniversary Edition) release will be getting the usual Disney spit-polish, completely restored and upgraded for high-def picture and 7.1 audio. Nor will Disney be scrimping on the bonus features, as you can see in the rundown below. It will include a, ahem, trunk-full of extras, a nice mix of featurettes for the grown-ups and silly games for the kiddos. You'll be able to add Dumbo to your collection on the usual trifecta of Blu-ray/DVD combo pack ($39.99), single-disc DVD ($29.99), or via download on September 20th. Mark your calendars, or if you happen to have an elephant handy, tell them. Those guys never forget.
