Bring home a classic with Pinocchio on DVD and Blu-ray

Sponsored postR_pinocchio_header_prebluray_6a616c6bPinocchio has always been one of those movies that I could watch again and again, so I’ve been waiting for the day that the elusive Disney vault would open and they would re-release Pinocchio on DVD and Blu-ray so we could purchase it {and finally rid ourselves of one of the last few VHS videos we still own}. Besides our own love for Pinocchio, it was also one of our Grandma’s favorites. After she passed away this last year we really wanted to share her love of Pinocchio with our kids, and were thrilled when Pinocchio was slated for a January 2017 release.

The Walt Disney Signature Collection release of Pinocchio is available January 31st, 2017 and includes hours of classic bonus material and exclusive features including a reinvented rendition of “When You Wish Upon a Star” created and performed by music influencers from Disney’s Maker Studios. It also contains never-before-seen artwork from the film’s Pleasure Island sequence and archival recordings of Walt himself during Pinocchio production.

Not familiar with Disney’s Pinocchio? Pinocchio tells the tale of wood-carver Geppetto’s beloved puppet who embarks on a thrilling quest – with faithful friend Jiminy Cricket – that tests his bravery, loyalty and honesty, all virtues he must learn to fulfill his heart’s desire: to become a real boy.

Pick up a copy of the DVD / Blu-ray and you will soon see why Pinocchio is considered one of the greatest animated films ever made. With two Academy Awards® {for best original score and best original song “When You Wish Upon a Star”} and a rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s clear it’s as beloved by the masses as it is by our family.

Our DVD arrives tomorrow, but I cannot wait to share the story of Pinocchio with my kids and inspire a whole new generation of our family. I know the film is going to be extra special knowing how much their grandma loved the story, and I love that they will have that connection to her that helps keep her memory very much alive.

The Pinocchio Project: “When You Wish Upon a Star” – Music influencers Alex G, Tanner Patrick and JR Aquino from Disney’s Maker Studios, a global leader in short-form videos, gather in a creative workspace to create their rendition of the film’s signature song, “When You Wish Upon a Star,” and produce a fresh new music video.
