Lady and the Tramp:
Walt Disney Signature Edition review by Bobby Blakey
Disney has become well known for their famed vault of films and where they used to release the diamond editions on Blu-ray they have since shifted to The Walt Disney Signature Collection Editions. The latest getting this treatment is the 1955 classic Lady and the Tramp, but does this iconic classic hold up or should it be kept in the pound?
Lady and the Tramp follows Lady, a golden cocker spaniel, who meets up with a mongrel dog who calls himself the Tramp. He is obviously from the wrong side of town, but happenings at Lady's home make her decide to travel with him for a while. This turns out to be a bad move, as no dog is above the law. I have to admit that I have never been a big Disney fan, but if I had to choose I would always move towards all the older films focusing on animals as the lead characters. Lady and the Tramp is one of those animated films that are not only beloved my so many, but offers up numerous iconic moments that have stood the test of time. This latest release is as gorgeous as ever bringing the classic to vibrant life like never before. The story continues to hold up throughout the years which is something few animated films have been able to do like Disney. I find that I appreciate these classic films way more than I did as a kid being able to see what they accomplished at the time of making it.
I know some just get tired of Disney re-releasing their titles but I give them credit in the way they do it and reinvent their collections that always brings something new to the table. This new release includes three versions of the film as well as numerous bonus features both old and new including deleted scenes, trailers, songs, and numerous featurettes that take you behind bringing this film to life. Grab your copy of Lady and the Tramp: Walt Disney Signature Edition when it heads home now on Digital and on Movie Anywhere and then on Blu-ray on Feb. 27.
