Forums - Movies Discussion - bought my first animated feature on blu-ray.

I picked the jungle book as my first animated feature in my blu-ray collection. I remember loving the movie as a kid and enjoying the songs and decided to get the jungle book diamond edition. I enjoyed the special features. I did'nt expect it 2 have a commentary track,because it was'nt shown on the back of the blu-ray,but it did and it was a nice surprise. watching again,as an adult was just as enjoyable as ever. I'm happy with my purchase,just thought I'd share.

Disney does a damn fine job with their bluray releases of the old classics. I have The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. Still waiting for a proper Aladdin release.


8th gen predictions. (made early 2014)
PS4: 60-65m
WiiU: 30-35m
X1: 30-35m
3DS: 80-85m
PSV: 15-20m

I only have two blu-ray purchases. The Man With No Name trilogy and the latest Gamera trilogy.

Hm. Seeing it written out like that makes me wonder if my tastes are a bit different than most.

I just finished watching it with the kids, Amazon delivered it this morning. The first time I saw it was at a school viewing in kindergarten. I'm still getting used to the English language track after growing up with the Dutch dub.

What a great movie, looks brand new on blu-ray, great job on the restoration. The subtle comic book motion lines are clearly visible now, every still makes a great picture on its own. The animation still amazes me, so many clever tricks and little jokes. I'll forgive them blatantly re-using entire animation sequences during the movie. The sound is very good too for a 1967 mono title.

The alternate ending was pretty interesting. Good thing they left it out, that extra half hour to the movie would have completely changed the balance.

Still one of my favorites, a timeless classic. What's your next animated feature going to be?

I've never seen that movie :X Sounds very good though. I was eyeing this set of those older stop motion classics. Stop motion didn't come back till Tim Burtons Nightmare b4 Christmas or at least successfully. I like the colorful classics and their cheesiness. I've never seen it on Blu-Ray yet....Blu-Ray makes some movies look incredible or you spot things you never noticed because of the clarity. I love it!

Did you know A Fistful of Dollars is a remake of Akira Kuraswa's Yojimbo? That might interest you. The Man with No Name Trilogy was one of my first DVD sets I bought, but that's been over 10 years ago they're such classics. Sound, Cinema, Up close shots, amazing characters, interesting locations, exciting action.



 Did we get ‘em?

If I do buy some Blu-Ray someday, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be something by Pixar. I think they even have a bundle with all their films in Blu-Ray up until Brave.

Good choice. In my opinion The Jungle Book is still the best animation movie ever made (followed by Pinocchio).

Trivia: The Jungle Book may not be the most popular Disney animation movie or their most beloved classic worldwide, but in Germany it's still the most successful movie ever - to this day and by a looong shot. 27.4 million people went to see the movie in Germany in 1967/68 (mind you: West Germany only); for comparison: Titanic had 18.9 mio. viewers in Germany (all-time place 2 behind Jungle Book), Harry Potter 1 12.5 mio, The Lion King 11.9 mio, Avatar 11.2 mio. LotR 1 10.7 mio.

My biggest want is to get Princess Mononoke on Blu Ray some day. Wish traditional animation was still prevalent (especially in the west) as can just imagine how gorgeous it could look these days.
