Arriving on DVD Tomorrow (1/16) -- JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES: BATTLE FOR THE BOOK! (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a screener copy from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.



Join Jake and His Friends as They Battle Captain Hook to Save Wendy’s Storybook and the Story of Peter Pan!


On Disney DVD on January 16th

This value-packed DVD includes the Battle for the Book! adventure plus 4 additional episodes, over two hours of fun! Plus FREE inside every DVD is an exclusive checker board bandana with gold coins, you can’t get anywhere else!

Synopsis:

"When Wendy’s special Storybook is stolen by Captain Hook, Jake and his mates go to London to help Peter Pan’s friend (from the classic movie Peter Pan). The longer the book is out of Wendy’s hands, the more she and her brothers (John and Michael) forget about their past adventures on Never Land.  The battle for the book continues in Never Land, where Hook plans to destroy the book and its stories in the legendary Ring of Blue Fire.  It’s up to our young heroes to save Wendy’s Storybook and the Story of Peter Pan!"

My Thoughts:

Yo ho ho!  My girls were so excited when they saw me opening this DVD, and were quick to ask if they could have a few of their neighborhood friends over to watch this new DVD with them.  While I knew my girls were huge Jake and the Never Land pirates fans, I learned last summer that all their friends in the neighborhood their age and even a little older, tune in daily to Disney Junior to watch this hit animated series.  :-)

Is your child a fan of this show?  I grew up loving to watch Peter Pan, and was so excited when I first stumbled upon this Disney Junior show, as it had Captain Hook and occasional appearances by none other than Peter Pan himself.  And, when I saw how excited my girls were when they show came on, and how lively they got as they jumped around the living room singing along to the catchy theme, I knew this saw was a winner. And, from that point on, we have started a little collection of DVDs, which is slowing growing thanks to new releases like this one, for my girls to enjoy at home and on the go.

Even though the episodes included on this upcoming DVD have already aired on television, my girls, and fans of the show, will still enjoy watching them over and over again.  I know, as my girls have only had this DVD for a little over a week now, and have already watched it half a dozen times. 

The full-length episodes you will find on this DVD include:

  1. Battle for the Book - Part 1 and 2
  2. Treasure of the Pirate Mummy's Tomb/Mystery of the Missing Treasure!
  3. Pirate Genie Tales
  4. Captain Gizmo/Jake's Pirate Swap Meet
  5. Sleeping Mermaid/Jake's Mega-Mecha Sword
Bonus Features:
  • 10 "Jake's Never Land Pirate School" Cartoon Shorts

In addition to the above episodes and cartoon shorts, your little ones will be excited when they find the checker board bandana and Gold Doubloons, that are included inside each DVD.  You may find yourself needing to buy two DVDs, if you have more than one child, as they will each want their own checker board bandana to wear, while toting around their gold doubloons. :-)  I made a point to pick up a second copy, which we left at my parents' house, so that my girls have another DVD to watch when they visit.

This new DVD release is sure to be a hit with fans of Jake and the Never Land Pirates, and will have your little ones dancing around the house, while sporting their cool bandana.  And, with over 141 minutes of content, it will keep little ones entertained on rainy or snow days, or when they simply want to get their fix of this fun animated series, on their schedule. :-)  Both of my girls give the JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES: BATTLE FOR THE BOOK! DVD two thumbs up, and your little one will, too!
