For the first time ever, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is introducing two film classics featuring acclaimed performances by Robin Williams to Blu-ray. On January 17, 2012, the 25th Anniversary edition of Good Morning, Vietnam and Dead Poets Society will be released.
The first season of the critically- and viewer-acclaimed hit drama on ABC family, ‘Switched at Birth’ will be getting a DVD release on December 13, 2011, just prior to the second season, which begins in January 2012.
‘Switched at Birth’ is the new, groundbreaking drama that documents the upheaval that two teen girls experience when they discover that they were accidentally switched at birth.
The highly acclaimed film, which is now available for pre-order from Amazon.com, is a completely original film which represents the return to the Hundred Acre Wood by Walt Disney Animation Studios in over three decades. Inspired by five stories by original Pooh creator and author A.A. Milne, Owl sends the whole gang – Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, and Roo – on a wild journey to help Eeyore and save Christopher Robin from the mysterious Backson all the while trying to find a suitable replacement for Eeyore’s missing tail. In the end, it turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some ‘hunny.’
Although Cars 2 is being billed as the first Disney/Pixar film to be released on Disney Blu-ray 3D, ahead of any official announcements, Amazon.com is now listing the Toy Story trilogy set as being released on November 1 as well.
The films will be available individually, or as a complete 3-disc set. No additional information is available as of yet, but generally speaking, if Amazon.com does release information ahead of official announcements, the announcements tend to follow within the next couple of days.
We will share additional information as it becomes available to us.
