Disney Anniversary Blu-ray Releases Include The Sword In The Stone, Robin Hood And Oliver And Company
Disney has been busy bringing some of its classic films on to Blu-ray (and in some cases, 3D Blu-ray) for the last few years. Late this summer, the company most known for animated classics is releasing three brand new Blu-ray combo pack, with each celebrating new release celebrating an anniversary. On August 6th, Disney will release The Sword In the Stone, Robin Hood, and Oliver and Company on Blu-ray for the first time ever.
The Sword In the Stone is probably the most exciting of the three, as it will be hitting Blu-ray for its 50th Anniversary. The movie follows the tale of a young boy named Wart, whose life is changed after meeting Merlin and heading on an adventure that includes a sword stuck in stone. The Blu-ray combo pack will include a DVD and digital copy and will even come with a brand new bonus feature, offering fans of the flick an alternative opening sequence. Additionally, all of the extras from the DVD release will be available with the set.
Robin Hood is also celebrating it’s 40th anniversary with a Blu-ray release. The retelling of the classic tale will come with a deleted storyline called “Love Letters.” Other classic extras will also be available, including some sing-a-long extras, which are pretty fitting, considering the flick was nominated at the Academy Awards for best original song in 1973.
Finally, Oliver and Company is turning 25 and is also getting an anniversary Blu-ray release. In the film, a cute orphaned cat meets up with a dog named Dodger and the subsequent adoption story is full of plenty of rambunctious moments and uplifting ones. Overall, if you already own a copy of any of these films, the anniversary editions may not be worth a purchase, but if you haven’t delved into them for a while, they may be worth a watch.
