Hi Bryan Here….
Disney has announced that they will be releasing “The Fox & The Hound” on blu-ray in honor of the 3oth Anniversary. Wow this film came out 30 years ago. 1981. That is the year I was born. I really loved this original film. I am so happy Disney is releasing this in hi-def. Disney has detailed the extras and specs for us to enjoy.
There will be a 3-disc version which will consist of a bluray disc that contains both films and two DVD’s with each film on it. Then a set with no bluray for those of you who haven’t upgraded yet.
“The release will be available as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack in 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include three featurettes (Unlikely Friends, Passing the Baton: The Making of The Fox and the Hound, and The Making of the Music), The Best of Friends Sing-Along Song, and a music video “You Know I Will” – Lucas Grabeel.”
It looks like August 9th will be the date that this will be released. Amazon currently has the set going for $27.99 which is currently 30% off the SRP. Also Amazon is offering a $5 dollar off coupon for pre ordering bringing down the bluray set to $22.99. Not a bad deal.
