Dumbo Celebrates 70th Anniversary With Blu-ray/DVD Release 9/20

I remember watching Dumbo over and over and over again with my little brother. It was his all time favorite movie and my mom still owns it on VHS. Evan found it a few months ago and while the quality wasn't great, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my brother had not completely worn it out. Now that my kids are Dumbo fans, I am excited that they released a 2-Disc Blu-ray Hi-Def & DVD Combo Pack in celebration of the 70th Anniversary Edition of the original film.

In celebration of this landmark film’s 70th anniversary, experience the daring adventures of the world’s only flying elephant with a dazzling all-new digital restoration and brilliant Disney Enhanced High Definition Theatre Mix Sound. The inspirational tale of Dumbo, the courageous baby elephant who uses his sensational ears to soar to fame with the help of his clever best friend Timothy Q. Mouse, will thrill and delight audiences of all ages. And now, the award-winning music and empowering messages about friendship and belief In yourself reach new heights in this must-have Blu-ray high-definition presentation of Walt Disney’s classic Dumbo!

I am thrilled to finally own this movie with better quality.  In our VHS version, it would occasionally skip from being so worn, but now it is crisp and clear.  My kids also have fun with the special features.  Evan enjoys the games, while Isabella likes dancing to the songs.  I personally was excited to see the deleted scene and the original information about the movie.

The 2-Disc Blu-ray/DVD version was released yesterday, September 20th.  You'll definitely want to add this classic to your collection. Here are some fun activities to get your family ready for the movie.
