Wizards (35th Anniversary Edition) Blu-Ray Book Review



Synopsis: Legendary and groundbreaking animator Ralph Bakshi's Wizards is the tale of a war between supernatural siblings set in a post-apocalyptic Earth populated by elves, fairies and mutants. Combining traditional cell animation with Bakshi's unique conversion of live film footage into striking, high-contrast animation, Wizards is both whimsical and sinister. This cult favorite from the director of Fritz the Cat (1972) and The Lord of the Rings (1978) celebrates 35 years since it first enchanted animation fans. Starring the voices of Mark Hamill, Susan Tyrrell and Richard Romanus.

Review: The Wizards is a classic and groundbreaking piece of animation by legend Ralph Bakshi.  Bakshi is responsible for an animation style that melts real-life footage into the animation, which creates an eerie and bizarre style.  This one is being released on blu-ray for the first time and in a nice blu-ray box commemorative set.  This is a must-own for any animation fan.

The special features on this set include: Theatrical Feature Blu-ray, 24-Page Collectible Book Packaging, Commentary by Director Ralph Bakshi, Ralph Bakshi: The Wizard of Animation, Still Gallery and TV Spot and Theatrical Trailers

Interest Range: Animation
