Disney’s legendary adventure is better than ever as Tarzan bursts onto Blu-ray for the first time ever with spectacular picture and amazing sound. Filled with thrills, laughs and Academy Award®-winning music (Best Music, Original Song, “You’ll Be In My Heart,” 1999), this family favorite will make you go wild.
Disney’s magnificent adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ story begins deep within the jungle when baby Tarzan is adopted by a family of gorillas. But his “Two Worlds” collide with the arrival of humans, forcing Tarzan to choose between a “civilized” life with the beautiful Jane and the life he shares with his fun-loving friends and his gorilla family. Enjoy this wild and wonderful adventure in a whole new way on Disney Blu-ray!
Experience Hercules, Disney’s animated classic from the creators of “Aladdin” and “The Little Mermaid,” on Blu-ray for the first time ever! Nominated for an Academy Award® (Best Music, Original Song, “Go The Distance,” 1997), this legendary family favorite is packed with colossal laughs and non-stop adventure.
Taken from the gods as a newborn and adopted on earth, Hercules is just an awkward pillar of strength trying to fit in. What he wants most is to impress his father Zeus. When Hercules discovers Hades’ sinister plot to take over Mount Olympus, he goes from zero to hero and, with the help of his pals Pegasus and Phil, discovers that real strength comes from the heart!
Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Let the enchantment begin! Disney’s Academy Award® winning classic, Bedknobs and Broomsticks (Best Visual Effects, 1971), soars onto Blu-ray for the first time with an all-new digital master. Experience a dazzling blend of live action and wondrous animation from the producer, director and writer of Mary Poppins, sure to delight the entire family.
Disney legends Angela Lansbury (Beauty And The Beast) and David Tomlinson (Mary Poppins) star in this beloved film about an apprentice witch who reluctantly takes in three orphan children. Though her first spells create more laughs than magic, Miss Price and the children soon find themselves swept away aboard a fantastic flying bed – their ticket to fun-filled excitement and adventure. Take the ride of your life with Bedknobs And Broomsticks.

Celebrate the 10th anniversary of Disney’s swashbuckling adventure, Mickey, Donald and Goofy: The Three Musketeers, presented for the first time ever in a dazzling new Blu-ray Special Edition! Join Mickey and all your favorite Disney characters in this outrageously funny take on the timeless tale.
Best buddies Mickey, Donald and Goofy are small-time janitors with big dreams of becoming Musketeers.

Packed with six rousing songs and now fully-restored with new and classic bonus features, this heartwarming family film is better than ever on Disney Blu-ray and High-Def Digital. It’s “All For Fun And Fun For All!”
The Adventures of Ichabod And Mr. Toad
Experience Walt Disney’s timeless classic, The Adventures Of Ichabod And Mr. Toad, on breathtaking Blu-ray for the first time ever! Disney’s humorous retelling of two unforgettable classics, The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow and The Wind In The Willows, wonderfully narrated by Basil Rathbone and Bing Crosby, come together in one magnificent adventure.
First, hang on for a wild ride with the fun loving Mr. J. Thaddeus Toad. When his passion for motorcars lands him in hot water, he must rely on his faithful friends to clear his name.

Share these high-spirited adventures with your whole family on Blu-ray and Digital HD.
Which classic are you most looking forward to sharing with your children? I’m excited about Bedknobs and Broomsticks. I must have watched that movie a million times as a child. I never got sick of it.
