If you love Lady and the Tramp, then you will want to make sure you pick up the upcoming Walt Disney Signature Collection Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital when it arrives in stores on Tuesday.  I grew up watching this movie, and now that I have children, this was one of the first movies from Disney I introduced my girls to, and that became an instant hit with them.  When I heard that they were releasing a new Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital version of this movie, I had to get my hands on a copy -- not just because my family loves this movie, but I heard that there were going to be some amazing bonus features added to the discs.

Wow, can you believe you get all of the above mentioned bonus content to enjoy?  I, for one, love bonus content, especially behind the scenes footage. And, this new release is chock full of that, in addition to deleted scenes, trailers and more.  

With all the rain the past few days, we ended up laying low for the weekend and watched some movies, including Lady and the Tramp.  When we were done with the movie, I showed the girls the bonus material.  They really liked seeing the movie trailers from way back when, and seeing how the movie has been digital remastered over the years.  They also enjoyed the deleted scenes, as it gave a little more insight into some of their favorite scenes, making the wonder why the content was cut from the final movie.  

There is so much bonus content that it is hard to watch it all in one sitting.  We have spent the past few days watching the bonus content, and still have a handful of features left to watch.  This afternoon we sat down and watched all the bonus features from the digital version, and found ourselves loving the PuppyPedia: Going to the Dogs, which featured  comedian Fred Willard at a dog park learning all about dogs and their owners. We really enjoyed this feature, as it introduced the girls to dogs breeds they had never seen before, and they loved seeing dogs and their owners interacting together.  My girls wished we could take our dogs to a dog park so that they could play with other dogs, but our rescue dogs are not for the park due to their old age, and temperament.

Of the bonus content we have seen so far, I have to have it has been really entertaining.  We love this classic so much, and now have a better appreciation for all that went in to make this classic film.  We got to learn about Walt Disney and his love of animals, especially dogs, and see how the storyboard for the movie came to life.  It was all fascinating content, that my whole family enjoyed.  We can't wait to find time this week to finish watching the remaining bonus content, and the movie again! :-)

If you love Lady and the Tramp just as much as my family does, and love when new releases like come jam-packed with never before seen bonus footage and deleted scenes, then you will definitely want to pick up this new Walt Disney Signature Collection release when it arrives in stores on Tuesday, so that you can enjoy the movie and bonus material with your family.  You will not be disappointed!
