Hi Bryan Here….

Finally, Disney’s ‘Rocketeer’ is hitting blu-ray.  I’ve been looking forward to this blu-ray for quite some time now.  ‘The Rocketeer hits blu-ray shelves on December 13th, just in time for the holiday season.  No extras have been announced yet, but the transfer is presented in 1080p with a 2.35:1 aspect ration and an English 5.1 DTS-HD Master audio mix.  You can pre-order the film for $18.99 on Amazon.


Celebrate the 20th anniversary of director Joe Johnston’s (Captain America: The First Avenger) action-filled, witty The Rocketeer. Now with state-of-the-art digital restoration and enhanced high definition sound, experience it as it jets off for the first time on Disney Blu-rayTM.

The discovery of a top-secret jetpack hurls test pilot Cliff Secord into a daring adventure of mystery, suspense, and intrigue! Cliff encounters an assortment of ruthless villains, led by a Hollywood screen star who is a secret Nazi spy.

Movie Quotes

[Captain Typho is trying to talk Padme out of leaving Coruscant without protection]
Captain Typho:
My Lady, let me come with you.
There is no danger. The fighting is over, and... this is personal.
[Typho bows]
Captain Typho:
As you wish, My Lady... but I strongly disagree.
I'll be all right, Captain. This is something I must do myself. Besides, Threepio will look after me.
Oh, dear.
[Typho leaves; Padme and C-3PO board the Naboo skiff; Obi-Wan sneaks on board]
