Dumbo flies to Disney Blu-ray and DVD September 20

Dumbo flies to Disney Blu-ray and DVD September 20

You will believe an elephant can fly! Some seventy years ago, Disney did the impossible, having pachyderm take flight in the animated classic Dumbo. The courageous baby elephant, separated from his beloved mother and ostracized from the world, overcame all odds, surviving with his best friend Timothy Q. Mouse (somewhat of a reworked Jiminy Cricket) and even taking to the air. Living through scorn and mockery, he turned what made him different (giant ears) into what made him special. If Santa’s sleigh was caught in fog AND stuck on the ground, we’d be looking at the ultimate Rudolph-Dumbo tag team. This September 20th, the legendary story comes home on Disney Blu-ray and DVD combo packs, as well as downloadable formats. Read on for the details, and fly on with excitement!

After the events of Kingdom Hearts II, and the Battle with Xemnas, Sora, Riku and Kairi take some time to relax on Destiny Islands. Meanwhile, Jiminy Cricket spends his time chronicling the events from the first game when he notices a line he didn’t remember writing. It seems a number of things in Jiminy’s journal have the power to create themselves spontaneously, as the gang will soon learn, spiraling through virtual levels of locations they’ve already visited in earlier game titles. There’s Destiny Islands, Traverse Town, Alice’s Wonderland, Olympus Coliseum, Agrabah, and Hollow Bastion to name a few, in addition to Disney’s Castle. Along for the ride are King Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto, the Heartless, Maleficent, Pete, and many other heroes and villains from Disney’s catalog. And now, the game can be yours, as Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded hits shelves in the US on January 11th; January 14th in the UK.

Sora’s journey in Kingdom Hearts II has drawn to a close, and now a new tale is set to begin. Jiminy Cricket is looking over the journal he used to document his first adventure with Sora when he discovers a mysterious message. He didn’t write it – so how on earth did it get there? King Mickey is determined to find out, so he and his friends decide to digitize the journal and delve into its deepest secrets. Inside this “datascape” dwells a second Sora who is about to embark on a grand adventure of his very own.
