As we first reported on Twitter last week, ahead of any official announcement, Amazon has begun taking pre-orders for the Blu-ray edition of ‘Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas‘ with a release date of November 4, 2014. A few days later, Walmart also began listing the title but as a 3-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo bundle of both ‘Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas’ as well as ‘Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas,’ along with the packaging seen here. It is likely that the Amazon listing is for both titles as well but it has not been updated appropriately.
In the 1999 film, ‘Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas,’ Mickey, Minnie and their famous friends Goofy, Donald, Daisy and Pluto gather together to reminisce about love, magic and surprises in three wonder-filled stories of Christmas past. In the fine tradition of Disney’s superb storytelling, Minnie and Mickey recall the year they both gave up what was most important to them for the sake of the other, making for one unforgettable Christmas. Goofy and Max retell when they experienced a series of hilarious but season-shaking events… until a visit from a real Santa made it a most magical holiday. Thinking back to when they wished Christmas was every day, Donald’s nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, remember their dream turning into a comical catastrophe, eventually learning what true holiday spirit is all about.
In the 2004 CG animated followup, ‘Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas,’ Santa Claus joins Mickey, Minnie, and all their pals in an original movie about discovering the true joys of Christmas. Watch the hilarious antics of stubborn old Donald as he tries in vain to resist the joy of the season, and laugh along with Mickey and Pluto as they learn a great lesson about the power of friendship.
We will update with more information as it becomes available to us.
