New Disney Re-Releases for Summer 2013


Leave it to Disney to release some great classics onto hi-definition Blu-ray just in time for the Summer months! Available on June 11th is the 2-movie collections of all-time hits Lilo & Stitch, The Emperor’s New Groove, and Atlantis – all available on 3-Disc Combo Packs!

Not only was this our chance to see Atlantis for the first time {how did we not see this before?}, yet I was personally I was very excited to get Lilo & Stitch and The Emperor’s New Groove. We have both these titles on VHS {yes, I just typed VHS}, and they are *this close* to being completely destroyed from overuse. It was just last year that I commented on my sadness that we won’t soon have Lilo & Stitch anymore. So thanks Disney for the release just in time!

new disney re-releases for summer 2013My girls wasted no time in watching all these films during last weeks rain. They were just used to running in the warmth sun outdoors all day when the clouds came in and stayed for days. ‘I’m bored!!’ ran high and my patience was low. Needless to say it was the perfect time to sit down and watch these titles as a family.

While we haven’t had the chance yet to watch all the special features and explore each disc in detail {one of our favorite parts about a new Disney release}, I’m sure Mother Nature will provide many days this Summer to unwind and do just that. As well we’ll be road trippin’ a lot this Summer and these are ideal for taking along to pass hours in the car.

Summer and outdoor weather may be here, but you still need to be prepped for those days stuck inside. Add these titles to the shopping list and enjoy as a whole family!

“Lilo & Stitch” and “Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has A Glitch”


“Lilo and Stitch” is the story of Lilo, a lonely little girl, and Stitch the mischievous little creature from outer space. When Stitch crash-lands in Hawaii, Lilo adopts him as her pet, but he soon turns her world upside down. Stitch takes Hawaii by storm, wreaking havoc and hanging ten while he evades the alien bounty hunters who are after him, and also learning about loyalty and friendship. Featuring six original Elvis Presley songs, “Lilo and Stitch” is fun for the entire family.

The laughter continues in the hysterical sequel “Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch.” As Stitch  settles into life with his human family it appears his molecular makeup is out of whack and his friendship with Lilo is threatened as a result. Lilo and her friends must find a way to restore his “goodness” level before he ruins everything, including Lilo’s big hula competition – the same competition her mother won years before.

Discover that “ohana” means family, and celebrate the unbreakable bonds of friendship like never before with these two unforgettable movies on Disney Blu-ray for the first time!

“The Emperor’s New Groove” and “Kronk’s New Groove” 


Start with The Emperor’s New Groove, featuring an all-star cast and Academy Award®-nominated music by Sting (Best Music, Original Song, Sting, 2000) and watch as the young and spoiled Emperor Kuzco (David Spade) gets transformed into a llama by his sinister advisor Yzma (Eartha Kitt) and her henchman Kronk (Patrick Warburton). How will Kuzco restore himself? He’ll need the help of a peasant named Pasha (John Goodman) if he wants to save his kingdom.

Continue with Kronk’s New Groove, the sequel to The Emperor’s New Groove. Yzma’s henchman, Kronk, is the star this time as he partakes in a hilarious adventure. Kronk attempts to impress his dad with a get-rich quick scheme but when things go wrong, Kronk discovers what the true riches in life are.

“Atlantis: The Lost Empire” and “Atlantis: Milo’s Return” 


This must-own 2-Movie Collection is filled with stunning visual effects that come to life like never before in digitally restored high definition picture and sound. These captivating stories of friendship and teamwork are available as a 3-disco Blu-ray Combo Pack which includes both films on a single Blu-ray disc plus each film on individual DVDs.
