All-Star Cast Of Feathered Friends Arrives On DVD Exclusively At Walmart, 
As Well As Digital HD and Video On Demand April 1 - From Lionsgate Home Entertainment

"Why hide in a crowd when you were born to stand out with the high-flying adventure Birds of Paradise, arriving on DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet) April 1 exclusively at Walmart and Redbox from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The film will be available on Digital HD, Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View everywhere the same day. Awarded the DOVE seal of approval, this family-friendly adventure proves you shouldn’t judge a bird by their feathers and features the voices of a talented cast including Drake Bell (TV’s “Drake & Josh), Ashley Tisdale (TV’s “High School Musical”), Ken Jeong (Despicable Me 2), Jane Lynch (TV’s “Glee”), Jon Lovitz (The Benchwarmers) and Keith David (Free Birds).

When Jack, an ordinary sparrow with dreams of becoming an extraordinary bird, is accidently covered in colorful paint, he is thrilled about his new exotic appearance and believes that he’ll now be able to impress Aurora, a beautiful canary who has recently escaped from her indoor cage.  But when Aurora’s mean owner, Mr. Potter, finds her, Jack must enlist the help of his best friends - Vinnie, the loyal pigeon and Skeeter, the hyper hummingbird as well as Rosie, the caring bat and the wise Old Buzzard in order to free her. And along the way, Jack and Aurora will learn that it’s not what you look like on the outside, but who you are on the inside that truly counts. 

Timed to the theatrical release of Rio 2, the Birds of Paradise DVD features all-new bonus material including a look behind the scenes of the voice recording sessions and a sneak peek at award-winning animated Miniscule shorts. The Birds of Paradise DVD will be available exclusively at Walmart for the suggested retail price of $19.98."

My Thoughts:

I love watching animated movies with my girls, as I love trying to figure out who is voicing the characters.  In this upcoming DVD release, you will find the voice talents of Ashely Tisdale, Jane Lynch from Glee, comedian Jon Lovitz, Drake Bell, Ken Jeong from Community, Dallas Lovato, older sister to Demi Lovato and Keith David.

Have you ever felt ordinary or not that special?  Well, this is the case for Jack the Sparrow voiced by Drake Bell.  He wishes he could be more exotic and vibrant like his other feathered friends.  But, when a paint color goes wrong, Jack the Sparrow finds himself in trouble.

Paired with a yellow canary voiced by Ashley Tisdale, who escapes her cage and has to deal with the adjustment of her new found freedom, these two unlikely friends, along with some other feathery friends they meet along the way, set out on an wild and crazy adventure, that will delight your entire family.

Not only do these feathered friends learn about the important of friendship, caring for one another, overcoming your fears and never giving up.  Jack the sparrow and Aurora both have low self esteems in the beginning, but along the way on their amazing adventure, they learn about themselves and how being different or ordinary is not so bad.  What a great message for the younger audiences.  And, they will love hearing familiar voices like Drake Bell and Ashley Tisdale voicing the lead characters.

And, as you wait for this DVD's release tomorrow, why not print out this fun Birds of Paradise maze to share with your child...
