March is a busy month for Disney in-home releases. Thank you! March break starts this week, and with two little ones to keep busy, I’ve been gathering books, games, craft supplies, and activity ideas to help keep them busy. I’m happy to add these Disney new releases to our March Break Survival Kit. The girls won’t be sitting in front of the TV the whole time, but there are definitely times this mama needs to keep them busy without me (cooking dinner being the prime time), and I’m not above leaning on Disney for a little babysitting once in a while.
Winnie the Pooh: Springtime With Roo
Available on Blu-ray Combo Pack on March 11th
Now on Digital High Definition and Blu-ray™ for the first time, Springtime With Roo leaps out to enchant a whole new generation!
Each year, Rabbit plays Easter Bunny, but this year, he’s decided it’s “Spring Cleaning Day,” and he orders everyone to hop to it: scrubbing, dusting, and mopping. All his pals are disappointed – especially little Roo – until Rabbit learns that putting others first and showing friends how much you care turns every day into a precious gift. Sparkling with unforgettable songs and a never-before-seen bonus treat, this delightful “egg-stravaganza” shows why love, hope and friendship are always in full bloom in the Hundred Acre Wood!
This story is an adaptation of A Christmas Carol. After cancelling Easter, Rabbit visits Easter past, Easter present, and Easter yet to come. When he’s shown the consequences of his actions, he learns not to be an “Easter Grinch” and throws a big Easter party for his friends.
My girls are Winnie the Pooh fans from way back. They’ve enjoyed every Winnie the Pooh movie, and this one is no exception. Springtime With Roo is a great movie to watch over March break as we get ready for Easter next month.
The Jungle Book 2
Available on Blu-ray Combo Pack on March 18th
Experience the wonder of this timeless tale as you reunite with your favorite characters and meet new friends. Disney’s beloved movie classic continues in this new digital master of The Jungle Book 2 – on Blu-ray for the first time, and wilder than ever in breathtaking high definition!
Now that Mowgli’s living in the “man-village,” he cherishes his new best friend and little brother, but he still has that jungle rhythm in his heart. He misses hanging out with happy-go-lucky Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. Yearning for freedom, Mowgli runs off into the jungle – and encounters his enemy Shere Khan! This time, he’ll need both his new human family and his old jungle friends to help save the day.
Packed with humor, suspense and fun, this thrilling musical adventure will be on of the “Bare Necessities” of your Disney movie collection!
I only recently introduced my girls to The Jungle Book which they thoroughly enjoyed, so I was looking forward to watching the sequel with them. The Jungle Book 2 didn’t hold them quite the same way as the original, but we enjoyed seeing what happened next to Mowgli and the gang. The refreshed version of “Bare Necessities” got our toes tapping, and Keira thought the vultures were particularly funny, though of course she has no clue who the Beatles were.
Jumpin’, jivin’ bonus fun includes:
- Deleted scenes
- Sing-along songs
- Music videos
- The Legacy of The Jungle Book
- Mowgli’s Jungle Ruins Maze Game
And once the kids are in bed, Saving Mr. Banks is out on Blu-Ray Combo Pack on March 18, and Delivery Man will be released on March 25.
