    Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection on Blu-ray

    Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films

    Together for the first time on Digital HD/Disney Movies Anywhere and Blu-ray are 12…Yes 12!… amazing Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films. Arriving to Digital HD/Disney Movies Anywhere August 11 and Blu-ray August 18th, the Disney short films are a must own collection of some of the most beloved shorts including the much anticipated short film, Frozen Fever.

    Watch the trailer for clips and previews of the 12 included short films.

    This extraordinary new collection of award-winning and beloved short films feature groundbreaking shorts with many of our favorite characters such as Anna, Elsa, Rapunzel, Mickey Mouse, and more. This must-own collection also comes with all-new extras including an inside look at the Disney Animation shorts, featuring introductions and interviews with the acclaimed filmmakers themselves as well as a Short Story on Shorts ad the DMA Debut of Runaway Brain (1995).

    Below is a list of each Disney Short Film featured in this all new collection along with a brief synopsis of each beloved film. Which film is your favorite?

    1. FROZEN FEVER (2015):
    In “Frozen Fever,” it’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but when Elsa catches a cold, her powers may put more than just the party at risk.

    2. FEAST (2014):
    “Feast” is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.

    3. GET A HORSE! (2013):
    Featuring Walt Disney himself as the voice of Mickey Mouse, “Get A Horse!” follows Mickey, his favorite gal pal Minnie Mouse (voice of Marcellite Garner) and their friends Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow as they delight in a musical hay wagon ride—until Peg-Leg Pete (voice of Billy Bletcher) shows up and tries to run them off the road. With both classic black-and-white, hand-drawn animation and up-to-the-minute technical wizardry (often in the same frame), this groundbreaking short takes a sharp turn when Mickey finds himself separated from Minnie and must use every trick up his sleeve to find his way back to her.

    4. PAPERMAN (2012):
    Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with “Paperman.” Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him. Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Paperman” pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction.

    5. TANGLED EVER AFTER (2011)
    By popular demand, Greno and Howard are bringing back some of Disney’s most beloved characters when “Tangled Ever After” picks up where “Tangled” left off. The Kingdom is in a festive mood as everyone gathers for the royal wedding of Rapunzel and Flynn. However, when Pascal and Maximus, as flower chameleon and ring bearer, respectively, lose the gold bands, a frenzied search and recovery mission gets underway. As the desperate duo tries to find the rings before anyone discovers that they’re missing, they leave behind a trail of comical chaos that includes flying lanterns, a flock of doves, a wine barrel barricade and a very sticky finale. Will Maximus and Pascal save the day and make it to the church in time? And will they ever get Flynn’s nose right?

    6. THE BALLAD OF NESSIE (2011):
    Set in the “bonny blue highlands” of Scotland, “The Ballad of Nessie” is a whimsical and colorful tall tale about the friendly Loch Ness monster, Nessie, and how she and her best friend MacQuack the rubber duck came to live in the moor they now call home. Setting the adventure into motion is a greedy land developer named MacFroogle, who decides to build a mini-golf empire on top of Nessie’s home.


    7. TICK TOCK TALE (2010):
    Time is running out when an antique clock shop is ransacked and robbed, leaving the fate of the kidnapped clocks in the small hands of an outcast who seems a little cuckoo. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ computer-animated short film transports audiences to the foggy streets of Victorian London for this comedic tale of an underdog who – in the nick of time – uses his imperfection to achieve something extraordinary.

    “Prep & Landing: Operation: Secret Santa” follows the further comic adventures of Santa’s stealthiest elves, Lanny and Wayne (who debuted the previous year in the Emmy® Award-winning ABC-TV special). With Christmas only a few short days away, Mrs. Claus (voiced by Betty White) and Magee (Sarah Chalke) enlist Wayne (Dave Foley) and Lanny (Derek Richardson) on a secret mission to retrieve a mysterious item hidden deep within the office of Santa Claus! Can the intrepid duo acquire the target in time, or will they be discovered by the Big Guy (Morgan Sheppard) and doomed to placement on the Naughty List?

    Disney’s beloved animated “everyman,” Goofy, returned to the big screen for the first time in 42 years to entertain and educate viewers about the challenges of modern technology and following directions when it comes to hooking up a home entertainment system. The enthusiastic but clueless Goofy is confronted by a huge instruction “manual,” and has to deal with a gargantuan universal remote as he tries to install a new home theater in time to enjoy the big game.

    10. THE LITTLE MATCHGIRL (2006):
    Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale about a poor young girl whose burning desire to find comfort and happiness comes to life through the magic of rich hand-drawn Disney animation in this powerful and inventive short film directed by Roger Allers (“The Lion King”). Desperate to keep warm, the girl lights the matches she sells and envisions a very different life for herself in the fiery flames filled with images of loving relatives, bountiful food and a place to call home. Set to the music of composer Alexander Borodin’s String Quartet No. 2 in D Major (Third Movement: Notturno (Andante), in an exciting new recording by the six-time Grammy Award-winning Emerson String Quartet, the film tells a captivating and emotional tale.

    11. LORENZO (2004):
    Walt Disney Pictures delivered one of its most artistically adventurous and exciting short films with the Oscar® nominated “Lorenzo.” Directed by Mike Gabriel (co-director on “Pocahontas,” “The Rescuers Down Under”), who also created the original story and served as production designer, this colorful animated romp centers on a pompous, pampered cat named Lorenzo who faces cat-astrophic consequences when his tail is hexed and develops a lively personality of its own. The film is based on an original idea by legendary Disney writer/artist Joe Grant, who designed the Witch/Queen character for “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” co-wrote “Dumbo,” and worked at Disney until he was nearly 97 years old. Giving the film its terrific tempo is a tantalizing tango entitled “Bordoneo y 900,” performed by the internationally renowned Juan Jose Mosalini and his Big Tango Orchestra. The film, which combines traditional animation with innovative CG techniques, was animated in France by a team of top artists. Roy E. Disney (“Fantasia/2000,” “Destino”) and Don Hahn (“Beauty and the Beast,” “The Lion King,” “The Haunted Mansion”) exece produced the film, while Baker Bloodworth closely guided the creative and technical teams in Paris and Burbank in his role as producer.

    12. JOHN HENRY (2000):
    Imaginatively told through words, music, and stylish visuals, “John Henry” celebrates the life and legend of a great American folk hero. As viewed through the eyes of his widow, Polly, the film explores Henry’s tall tale adventures as he challenges a powerful steam drill in a climactic confrontation of man versus machine. The nine-minute film marked the directing debut of veteran Disney animator Mark Henn, one of the industry’s top talents and the artist who supervised such memorable Disney characters as Ariel, Princess Jasmine, Young Simba, Mulan, Tiana and Winnie the Pooh. Sounds of Blackness, a Grammy Award-winning musical ensemble specializing in traditional music rooted in the African-American experience, wrote and performed the original song that tells the famous story in a new way.

    Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur First Teaser Trailer

    The Good Dinosaur Poster

    Millions of years ago an asteroid 6 miles wide destroyed every dinosaur on earth, But what if… Woosh…it passed earth right on by and the dinosaurs still remained in the circle of life? What would life be like? Would man still be the dominate force or would dinosaurs become the evolving species?

    “The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of. The Good Dinosaur

    After Arlo is separated from his pack, he sets out on a journey to find his way back. While finding his way in a strange land, Arlo finds a human. He doesn’t talk much and is a little “wild” but Arlo keeps him and calls him Spot. The story mirrors the theme of “a boy and his dog.” However, unlike the Flintstones where Dino the dinosaur is the dog, The Good Dinosaur switches things around and makes the human the dog and Arlo, the dinosaur, the boy. Who knows, if the asteroid never hit perhaps we would be sitting in purses, drinking from bowls and using the great outdoors as natures outhouse.

    Watch Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur First Teaser Trailer below and wonder what would have happened if the earth was never hit.

    The Good Dinosaur will hit theaters November 25th, 2015.
