The Secret of the Magic Gourd

By January 27, 2009

Follow me on:

The DVD releases are especially interesting today with a new Disney movie, a new sequel, and more. The Secret of the Magic Gourd is based on the beloved Chinese children’s novel and is one of China’s top grossing family films. The movie is also Disney’s first Chinese language film. In the English version, the Magic Gourd characters is voiced by Corbin Bleu (High School Musical, Jump In!). The heart-warming story and strong moral lesson make the movie a great choice for families.

Today also marks the release of the Mary Poppins: 45th Anniversary Edition on new 2-disc Special Edition DVD (not on Blu-ray). The DVD contains several new behind-the-scenes features about the making of the movie and how the movie was transformed from a story in a book (did you know that Mary Poppins is based on popular children's stories by P.L. Traversto?), to a classic movie, to a Broadway musical.
