Disney has been working hard to bring the company’s entire back catalog of films on to Blu-ray and, in some cases, 3D Blu-ray for the first time. Now, Disney is announcing some family favorites for Blu-ray set to hit the market this spring. Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Mulan & Mulan II, The Hunchback of Notre Dame & The Hunchback of Notre Dame II, and Brother Bear & Brother Bear II on March 12.
We still have a while to wait before Disney’s batch of March releases are available for purchase, but with some anniversary editions in the batch, it seems like the company felt the new Blu-rays warranted an early announcement. Additionally, three of the four sets will be two-movie collections, which may or may not be worth a purchase. Let’s take a look at the one non-double set, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, first.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit: The 25th Anniversary Collection will come in a Blu-ray + DVD box set with brand new cover art and a slew of bonus features, including the digitally restored “Roger Rabbit Shorts,” several featurettes, and even audio commentary. I don’t think I’ve owned the flick since it was on VHS, but even if you already own a DVD copy, this looks like a really nice set. You can check out the full list of extras, below.

The Mulan, Brother Bear, and Hunchback of Notre Dame collections all come with the first and second movies in the series. Of the three, the Mulan set is also an anniversary edition—can you believe the original movie came out 15 years ago? Each will come with special features, as well, but most of these seem to be repeats from other releases. We’ll keep you posted with extra features and cost over the next couple of days, but until then, be sure to check out the cover art.
