Disney's A Christmas Carol Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Pack Review

Disney's A Christmas Carol Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Pack Review

Synopsis: From Walt Disney Pictures comes the magical retelling of Charles Dickens’ beloved tale – Disney’s A Christmas Carol, the high-flying, heartwarming adventure for the whole family. When three ghosts take penny-pinching Scrooge on an eye-opening journey, he discovers the true meaning of Christmas – but he must act on it before it’s too late. Complete with spirited bonus features, this exhilarating and touching Disney classic is destined to be part of a family holiday tradition, adding sparkle and heart to all Christmases yet to come. 

Review: Disney is responsible for some of the best animated features of all-time.  Their Xmas feature Mickey's A Christmas Carol was a favorite of mine growing up.  This new version of the Dickens classic was done using motion-capture technology, which is a type of animation that really uses the actors facial and body movements to create a lifelike and somewhat distorted view of reality.

Jim Carey is the voice of Scrooge and as you might expect the highlight of the film.  This take has moments of being lighthearted and fun, but maintains a darker and solemn feel.  The film looks absolutely crisp and dynamic in high-definition, so its really a must-see on blu-ray.    It still looks great, but its just not the same!  This combo pack is a great idea, because the kids can watch the DVD and the blu-ray can stay safely tucked away for the family to enjoy.
