Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media will release C.S. Lewis’ “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” on DVD and UMD April 4th.
This spectacular $283 million box-office hit – Walt Disney Pictures’ third highest grossing live-action film of all time – will be available as a Single Disc DVD with outstanding bonus features, and also as a Special 2-Disc Collector’s Edition DVD.
The Special Edition will take viewers on a deeper adventure into the world of “Narnia” with nearly ten hours of bonus features – including a behind-the-scenes tour with the film’s child stars, director’s diary, “Cinematic Storytellers” film diaries, multiple audio commentaries, 3-D map, interactive timeline, featurettes on the creatures and much more.
The “Narnia” DVD production team worked with the filmmakers from the very start of the film’s production, resulting in exclusive, never-before-seen bonus features that deliver unprecedented access into this cinematic blockbuster.
Prepare to enter a world filled with mystical creatures, wondrous lands and stunning special effects, from Andrew Adamson, the acclaimed director of “Shrek.”
Through a magical wardrobe, four children embark on an adventure to the enchanting land of Narnia, where they help the great lion, Aslan, conquer the dark magic of the White Witch and restore peace to a land threatened with eternal winter.
The Single Disc Edition of this critically acclaimed audience favorite will be available in both widesceen (2.35:1) and full screen versions, while the 2-Disc Collector’s Edition will be available in widescreen only.
Audio will be in English (DTS 5.1 and Dolby Digital 5.1), plus French and Spanish, along with (optional) subtitles in Spanish and French.
SRP will be $29.99 for the Single Disc DVD or the UMD format (for Playstation Portable) and $34.99 for the 2-Disc Collector’s Edition. We expect huge discounts on this title, however, meaning you will probably be able to pick up the Collector’s Edition for less that twenty five dollars!
