“In celebration of this landmark film’s 70th anniversary, experience the daring adventures of the world’s only flying elephant with a dazzling all-new digital restoration and brilliant Disney Enhanced High Definition Theatre Mix Sound.

Mouse, will thrill and delight audiences of all ages. And now, the award-winning music and empowering messages about friendship and belief In yourself reach new heights in this must-have Blu-ray high-definition presentation of Walt Disney’s classic Dumbo!”
I can remember watching Dumbo over and over again as a child, however then it was a VHS tape and didn’t include any of the amazing bonus features that accompany the combo pack today. It’s hard to believe that Dumbo was released theatrically in 1941 and was Walt Disney’s fourth animated film. We have awaited Dumbo’s release from the Disney Vault for some time now, and it was an amazing experience to share one of my favorite Disney features with my own kids all these years later!
We are BIG fans of the Blu-ray/DVD combo packs because whether we are at home or on the go, there’s a copy that been played in both our Blu-ray player and our portable DVD player. And, of course it’s always nice to have a back-up copy in the event that one gets lost!
The new combo pack is loaded with bonus features including:
· Deleted Scene – “The Mouse’s Tale
· Deleted Song – “Are You a Man or a Mouse?”
· Taking Flight: The Making of Dumbo – A journey back to the origins of the film as everybody’s favorite baby elephant takes wing.
