Synopsis

In an all-new special edition from Tim Burton, the acclaimed director of Alice In Wonderland,
comes the astounding film that captured the hearts of fans and critics all across the world. Inspired
by Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book, Burton, Denise Di Novi and director Henry Selick

crocodile tongues. When James spills them in the garden, out sprouts an enormous peach!
Climbing inside, he meets an astonishing cast of characters and embarks on a magical odyssey
full of thrills and adventure. Voiced by an all-star cast, including legendary actors Richard
Dreyfuss, Susan Sarandon, Simon Callow and Jane Leeves, and featuring the celebrated music of
Randy Newman, this classic story is delicious entertainment for the whole family!

major points!

My Review

I was about seven or eight years old when James and the Giant Peach was released. It was probably my first time seeing anything Tim Burton had anything to do with making and I instantly fell in love with his work. The animation was ahead of its time, the Roald Dahl story was breath-taking. How could I not fall in love?

Re-watching it now in my early twenties, with my own child is amazing. At only two years of age, he recognizes a great movie when he sees it. Proof: He HAD to watch this movie two times in a row, wouldn’t have it any other way.

As always, I love the option Disney gives their customers in purchasing a combo pack. Having a blu-ray and DVD copy gives me the chance to lend a copy to a friend without hesitation. Not to mention the digital download copy comes in handy while waiting for appointments with the little one, long car trips or grocery shopping. He can just watch on the iPod or iPhone, no problem.

The James and the Giant Peach DVD + Blu-ray Combo Pack will be released on August 3rd, but can be pre-ordered James and the Giant Peach (Two-Disc Special Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo) [Blu-ray] on Amazon for only $24.99. If you choose two-day shipping, you will receive the movie on the release date…or you can attempt winning a copy right now.

Giveaway: One lucky reader will win a James and the Giant Peach DVD + Blu-ray Combo Pack of their own.
