Disney has done what they do best with the DVD release of their TV movie for the hit television series The Wizards of Waverly Place. They’ve taken the version they aired on TV, added a couple new scenes, and put it together with some exclusive bonus features. They include on location insider’s exclusives where the stars of the movie talk about and reveal to us secrets about the special effects, magical props, movie stunts, animal actors, and more.
The digital transfer looks great, is presented in 1.78:1 widescreen, and enhanced for 16X9 televisions. The disc also has French and Spanish language tracks with subtitles. It features Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound.
The bonus features definitely will excite the kids and keep them entertained. Each kid actor gets a chance to showcase themselves. Selena Gomez talks fashion during her section and Jake T. Austin takes a personal camera around filming different things.
The limited-edition DVD version comes in a cardboard sleeve with a special color changing wishing stone as a bonus. This is definitely a winner for the kids. (Review by Eric Shirey)
