“The Tigger Movie” Special Edition Includes All-New Exclusive Bonus Features
Burbank, Calif., July 9, 2012 – Walt Disney Studios brings the magic of the Hundred Acre Wood to life with “The Tigger Movie,” bouncing onto Blu-ray high definition and HD Digital for the first time on August 21, 2012. Featuring new digitally enhanced picture and sound and exclusive bonus features, “The Tigger Movie” Bounce-A-Riffic Special Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack invites families to relive the childhood fun of the one and only Tigger.
The exciting new Blu-ray Combo Pack provides hours of viewing fun with bonus materials including two all-new features: Disney Intermission—when the film is paused, young fans can participate in a variety of Hundred Acre Wood themed games including guess the character, spot the differences and counting; and “A Tigger Tale” a featurette where the filmmakers discuss how Tigger’s literary and film history influenced “The Tigger Movie.”
“The Tigger Movie” Bounce-A-Riffic Special Edition Blu-ray is a tiggerific treat for the whole family and for added fun, comes packaged with a family tree activity poster and stickers.
In this charming musical tale of friendship and adventure, “The Tigger Movie” Bounce-A-Riffic Special Edition follows Tigger as he sets off on an epic journey to find other Tiggers in his family tree. Through a series of exciting adventures he discovers that families come in all shapes and sizes. This fun and playful animated tale delights a whole new generation of fans with its timeless characters and storytelling, rich animation and delightful songs by legendary Disney songwriting team of brothers, Richard and Robert Sherman. The film features the Hundred Acre Wood’s most lovable characters, Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet and the rest of the gang.
It's strange seeing the normally joyful, bouncing Tigger depressed, but he is. Tigger is down because he's started wondering about his family and if he has one. Surely there must be other bouncing Tiggers out there, but Tigger has no idea where to start looking and he soon spirals into an Eeyore-like funk. However- I gotta say, that I liked getting a peek into the ever happy-go-lucky Tigger's other side. Not to say I liked seeing Tigger depressed but it is nice to see he has more layers than just bouncy. I think underneath it all, it shows kids that even Tigger isn't happy all the time, and that's OK. The picture is as good as it ever was, but this movie is not that old. I loved that the normal main character Pooh is more of an afterthought and a supporting character. I loved how they try to cheer him up by dressing up as him. Giana is getting a little old for Tigger & Pooh but she watched it with her little sister anyway! Devonny doesn't know Pooh & his friends as well as Giana did. When Giana was little there was the (back-then) new Tigger and Pooh cartoon on Disney which doesn't even come on anymore. Also, we don't have cable anymore, so the only time she would see Pooh and his friends is when I put the old DVDs of Giana's on. Since she monopolizes our TV with girly characters, such as Bratz and Barbie ( & so on) Pooh has a rare appearance on our television in our home. So - that turned out to be a good thing, since she hasn't seen it that much, it isn't something she has grown tired of, like- The Little Einsteins and been played to death. We have watched the movie twice, and though she is a bit young to sit through the whole movie, she definitely expresses interest in it. I love that the set comes with a regular DVD and a BluRay since the only BluRay we own is in the living room. That way- if the kids want to watch it, while I am watching something else, I don't have to sit though a kiddie movie I have already seen. :)
Giana had a peek at the Special Features, and played around with them for a while. When asked what she thought of them, she said she liked them better than the movie. (The first thing she does upon inserting ANY disc, is check to see what the Special features offer.. (: Of course, the movie has a happy ending and they band together to cheer Tigger up (without the help of Prozac! LOL) .
