The Fox And The Hound Celebrate With 30th Anniversary Blu-Ray
Disney loves nothing better than to re-release its movies, and on that front, they've never met an anniversary they didn't like. Case in point: the House of Mouse has announced an August release for The Fox and the Hound, timed to celebrate the film's 30th anniversary. This comes just five years after we got a 25th anniversary release, naturally enough, but at least this go-round comes with an extra selling point -- The Fox and the Hound has been digitally restored and upgraded to high-definition.
The Fox and the Hound (30th Anniversary Edition) will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD on August 9th, and will also be packaged with the 2006 sequel, The Fox and the Hound 2. As per usual, Disney will provide several different purchase options. The three-disc Blu-ray combo pack will include both films on both a single Blu-ray and two DVDs, and will list for $39.99. If you're not Blu-ray capable, you can opt for the two-disc DVD set for $29.99. If you're still not sold, The Fox and the Hound will also be available as a digital download in both high-def and standard-def versions.
The release won't be as loaded with bonus features as some of Disney's higher-profile releases, but there is still enough to keep you and your kids occupied for a while. You can check out the trailer and the specs below.
