Disney re-releases 2 animated classics on DVD & Blu-ray

In the next two months Disney will be re-releasing two of the most treasured animated classics from the Disney Vault so a new generation of kids can enjoy them on DVD & Blu-ray!

12 August sees the return of my absolute favourite to the screen. This was one of the first animated movies I bought (well before we had kids) and I LOVE the soundtrack – can you guess what it is?? None other than The Jungle Book. I’m super excited to hear this news as my beloved DVD was cracked in two about 5 years ago by toddler who thought he could put DVD’s on for himself! Since that day I have hung onto the DVD box waiting for the day when I will once again be able to enjoy “The Bare Necessities” and finally it is around the corner! Now Disney’s song-filled celebration comes vibrantly to life, with a new digital restoration and high definition picture. I can’t wait to introduce my kids to this thrilling adventure along with the wonderful characters of Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera, Shere Khan, Kaa and, of course, King Louis! The DVD will have bonus features such as and alternate ending, info about the Lost Character – Rocky The Rhino and Disneypedia: Junglemania!

Then 9 September sees the re-release of another favourite: The Little Mermaid, also with new Picture and Sound Restoration. Can you believe that as far as I can remember I have not actually seen this movie. I know the story of course having starred as a “clam” in my primary school play of the story! πŸ˜‰ I know – name in lights!! ANyway I’m really looking forward to sharing some snuggles with my daughter while we share in Ariel’s adventure of a lifetime along with her friends – the adorable fish Flounder and crazy crab Sebastian!

She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. Such great classics! I would love to win a copy of The Little Mermaid.

    It brings back such a lovely and VERY funny memory when my daughter still thought I might be Ariel because my hair was (freshly) colored as red as red can be. The day after I had it colored, I washed my hair and some of the red came off on my light green towel. She looked at the towel and looked at me and asked if I am dying because I am not living in the ocean anymore … Still makes me laugh! x

  2. The Jungle Book, the later Jungle book ( remakes ) are just not as kid friendly and nicely done as this version. My 3 little ones will definitely enjoy it πŸ™‚

  3. Have always LOVED The Little Mermaid! And my 6-yr old daughter loves it so much too! Would be a great addition to our Disney DVD collection!

  4. I’d love to win the little mermaid! It brings back such happy childhood memories – It was the first movie my parents took us to see at the drive in (yes! The drive in! remember those?) and we loved it so much, my dad bought it for us on video at the airport on the way home from a family holiday, snuck it in our suitcase so we’d find it when we unpacked πŸ™‚ We watched it so many times the tape got all stretched, but we kept watching it anyway!

  5. I have a son who love “the Jungle book” & a daughter that loves “the lil mermaid”…….. So either of the movies would be a gr8 win. πŸ™‚

  6. I would love to win The Little Mermaid, I have been looking for this for years. I used to have a VHS copy that went obsolete and I was heartbroken when I couldn’t watch it anymore.

  7. I just LOVE both of them.
    I have been looking for The Jungle Book for myself and my granddaughter who is soon to be 3 years old as she is just crazy about animals too.

  8. I would love to see the Little Mermaid again and to own this DVD. My little 18 months old daughter is mad about fishies so this will be a good investment for her!

  9. I would love The Jungle Book for the boys.I think its a classic that every child should watch and would enjoy:)

  15. The Jungle Book – it was the first movie I ever went to see at the cinema, aged 5. I was so, so excited waiting to go in, getting some popcorn and then finally being seated right in the front! Would love to be able to show this beautiful movie to the little ones in my life.

  16. Ooooh…I would love to introduce my step children to “The Jungle Book.

    It is my all time favorite Disney movie, and it formed a basis of my love for animals and all living creatures. I would love to pass on that love and respect for all creatures to my step children πŸ™‚

  17. One day walking from school , because of my love for books, I picked up a rugged old disney copy of The Jungle Book from the dusty streets of Tembisa. The kids that were playing there must have left it . I read it on my way home, didn’t even realize I got home. Full of adventure and excitement, I read it everyday. And because my mother couldn’t afford to buy me books, it was so precious and the story is still brings a lot of memories.

    Now I have the chance to show my kids what I’ve always told them about the baby who was raised by the jungle called Mowgli. It would mean a lot to win this one!
