Disney’s animated take on the classic tale by Charles Dickens’ is singing and barking its way to Blu-ray in August. “Oliver and Company” will be released for Blu-ray on August 6, 2013.
“Oliver and Company” is a timeless classic that was inspired by Charles Dickens’ novel “Oliver Twist.” “Oliver and Company” is a fun-filled, action-packed musical adventure voiced and sung by a talented cast. The film skillfully blends lovable characters, cool songs, and action-packed adventure into a contemporary classic. Disney’s high-energy tale begins in the concrete canyons of New York City, where Oliver, an adorable orphaned kitten, is befriended by Dodger, a carefree mutt with a certain street “savoir faire.” The mischievous little Oliver is welcomed by Dodger’s pack of pickpocket pooches, including dim-witted Einstein, ravishing Rita, and live-wire Tito. This group of misfits then runs into trouble when the evil mastermind Sykes, who is aided by his two daunting Dobermans, schemes to kidnap the lonely little rich girl who just adopted Oliver! It’s up to the brave kitten and his new friends to race to the rescue in an electrifying chase through the city’s subway system. The movie will feature five outstanding original songs and the music of Billy Joel, Bette Midler, and Huey Lewis.
The Blu-Ray edition of “Oliver and Company” will also include:

If you have young kids you are going to want to subscribe to the new Disney Junior digital magazine available in the app store or Apple Newsstand.
My son and I spent hours playing with this interactive magazine and let me tell you, it was a big hit with both of us. The issue we read was called “Everyone’s an Artist,” and there were lots of games relating to color and art work. My son loved all of the coloring and the ability to choose which color virtual crayon he would use with each new page! I love the fact that he could draw and write without any risk to my walls and floors!
In a rather surprising turn of events, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has revealed that the studio has reacquired the film rights to two of their most popular characters, Ghost Rider and Blade. This is two of four sets of characters, and universes, that the studio has reacquired in the past two years. Last October, Marvel publicly regained control of DareDevil from 20th Century Fox, and earlier in the year had also managed to re-obtain The Punisher as well. While the characters coming home under the banner is excellent news, at this time, there is no plans of bringing the characters back to the screen anytime soon. This now means there are only three major character universes left for Marvel to get back in house: Spider-Man from Sony Pictures, and the Fantastic Four and X-Men from 20th Century Fox. Unfortunately, I’m not holding my breath to see those coming back to their parent company any time soon, but at least the ball has been set in motion for Marvel to regain many of their own properties.
The most interesting thing about this acquisitions, at least for me, is that these characters they’ve gotten back all live in a very different part of the Marvel universe, and one I’d love to see on screen. I think it might be time for Marvel to think about possibly opening up the seedy underbelly, and more supernatural side, of their universe, one that is totally different than the super heroic side, and the cosmic side we’re starting to move towards. I really think this is their chance to do something incredibly different, creating another part of the universe where gangs, crime bosses, vampires, and more reign supreme, and only the most hardened of characters, can enter. The idea of seeing The Punisher and DareDevil working together, or Blade and Ghost Rider possibly fighting side by side against a common supernatural foe has me absolutely giddy, so I can dream about the possibilites. Are you glad to see Marvel has regained the rights to some of its characters? Let me know in the comments below, only here at Chip and Company!
