Review:
There's not really a whole lot I can say to make this movie any more attractive than it's already been presented. This truly is a return to the old-style classic magical princess tales in the vein of Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, and others. The movie looks beautiful and just has that epic feel that the original hand-drawn Disney films have become known and adored for. This 3-disc package includes the movie on Blu-ray,DVD, and a digital copy.

The film on regular DVD is presented in 1.78:1 aspect ratio with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. There's a Spanish track as well.

On Blu-ray, the film is presented in 1.78:1 aspect ratio with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio(48 kHz/24-Bit), French Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. (Review by Eric Shirey)
