I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of this Blu-Ray Combo Pack to review. My friends and I watched Brave on Blu-Ray this Sunday, and I was again reminded of how fantastic this movie is! I love the plot so much, and the brilliant animation using Pixar's state-of-the-art technology is so impressive. It has sparked my interest in Scotland and Scottish history very much.
This DVD set is INCREDIBLE. You don't only get the movie on DVD and on Blu-Ray (already so awesome to receive both in one package), but you ALSO get a Disney Digital copy of the film to enjoy on whatever device you choose, AND a copy in Blu-Ray 3D format for 3D players! You also have an entire disc of Bonus Features, let alone the bonus features found on the other discs too! The bonus videos are so fun, and make an excellent addition to your viewing of this film, especially for kids who may like a little extra information and experience with the characters. The behind-the-scenes features are always interesting, I love hearing more about the process of creating films.
This is just an amazing amount of stuff in one set -- what a fantastic gift for this upcoming holiday season!
There is also a bonus short entitled "The Legend of Mordu". This short goes in to more detail about a legend described in Brave, and it's great to have the option to explore this legend further and hear more about the background of the character Mordu. This bonus short may be a little "dark" for some little ones, so I do advise parents watch it first and use your discretion about what your own children can handle watching. A lot of legends have a darker history, so this is an interesting way to inspire kids to want to explore legends, myths, and historical stories -- I do love this as a starting point for further research or storytelling!
I thoroughly enjoy this movie, and think you will too! This "Ultimate Collector's Edition" Blu-Ray + Blu-Ray 3D + DVD + Digital Copy is available in stores now.
Thanks, Walt Disney Motion Pictures Canada for allowing me to receive 1 review copy of this set! It's incredible!
