Disney Unleashes Platinum '101 Dalmatians' Edition26 Oct, 2007 By: Billy Gil
The same week The Walt Disney Co. announced its vault door will swing closed on five of its films, the company has announced a temporary escapee: 101 Dalmatians, which will appear in a Platinum Edition March 4, 2008. Orders are due Jan. 9, 2008.
The two-DVD set, valued at $29.99, features a new digital film restoration of 101 Dalmatians (the 1961 animated version). The DVD has been out of circulation and will be pulled once again after a limited release.
Among the bonus features is an all-new interactive “Virtual Dalmatian” game, which allows players to train and take care of their own virtual puppy. Other bonus material includes a “Puppy Profiler,” in which viewers can find out which dog they're most like; 101 pop-up trivia facts; and a new “Cruella De Vil” music video, as performed by Disney Channel star Selena Gomez.
The set also includes deleted songs, behind-the-scenes featurettes and more.
