Dumbo 70th Anniversary Edition Review and Giveaway...

On September 20th, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment released DUMBO as a 2-Disc Blu-ray Hi-Def & DVD Combo Pack in celebration of the 70th Anniversary Edition of the original film.

 
Faced with the daunting task of restoring the film to its original pristine condition, the Walt Disney Studios Restoration Team turned to the US Library of Congress who store the original 70 year old nitrate camera negative in their film vaults, and for reference, to an original 1941 ‘release’ print, held by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).  Using this rare nitrate “dye-transfer” Technicolor print for color reference, the team was able to restore Dumbo to the color settings most likely approved by Walt Disney himself, which will be seen in their full splendor for the first time in 70years, on the Blu-ray debut.  In addition, the rare film print (housed as part of the UCLA Film and Television Archives collection) proved to be the earliest surviving generation of the original audio for Dumbo which provided a unique source from which to build the new Disney Enhanced Home Theatre (DEHT) mix for the Blu-ray release.
 

Released theatrically in 1941, Dumbo, Walt Disney’s fourth animated film, was an immediate success with audiences and critics alike.  In addition to its Academy Award® for Best Music, Dumbo was also Oscar®-nominated for Best Song, for the haunting lullaby, “Baby Mine.”  Additional songs from the film, written by renowned composer Frank Churchill and lyricist Ned Washington, have become popular standards.  They include the infectious “When I See an Elephant Fly,” sung by a chorus of hip crows who befriend Dumbo and his friend, Timothy Mouse, and “Pink Elephants on Parade,” which accompanies Dumbo’s feverish dream-sequence. 

Film Synopsis
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.  The inspirational tale of Dumbo, the courageous baby elephant who uses his sensational ears to soar to fame with the help of his clever best friend Timothy Q. 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!

Wow, I can't believe Dumbo was made 70 years ago and still makes you and your whole family smile! I remember watching this as a kid and now I get to share this with my kids and my grandchildren with it newly edited on Blu-ray. We loved seeing how happy Jumbo was when the stork brought her baby elephant to her. Even though he had big ears and the other elephants laughed, mama Jumbo loved her baby no matter what he looked like. 

I felt bad for Dumbo when they turned him into a clown and everyone made fun of him but then he met Timothy Q. Mouse. They become good friends and Timothy tries to always make Dumbo happy. After running into a pack of birds, they decide to help Dumbo use his big ears for something good and teach him to fly. When the circus crowd watches him fly for the first time he becomes an instant star and everyone loves him. This is a classic movie everyone will enjoy for many years to come!

The Blu-ray has a ton of special features like: Deleted scenes, backstage Disney, The making of Dumbo, a couple animated shorts, the magic of Dumbo, and many more. 
Now here's the really exciting part... 

I get to give one lucky winner a Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack!
