Now in the stores - from Walt Disney Home Entertainment:
Escape To Witch Mountain - 2 Movie Collection Release on DVD!
Whether you are "Escaping", "Returning" or "Racing" to "Witch Mountain", you can be sure that these Disney films are a sure bet for the kids! Just released on DVD are Escape to Witch Mountain and Return From Witch Mountain. These classic campy Disney films still hold the attention of today�s kids, (or at least it did mine!) Why what child wouldn�t want special powers that includes levitation and "talking" with the animals?
These are just some of the powers exhibited by Tia and Tony as they search for their people and break up gangs of bad guys. If you grew up in the 1970s, you will want to share these classics with your kids. One interesting feature available in the special features are pop-up facts. You can learn all kinds of interesting trivia like: do you know why Bette Davis was involved in the sequel? Well, she wanted to be involved in a film her grandkids could watch, and she wanted them to be proud of one of their grandmother's films. Personally, as a kid, I always thought she was scarier than a grandmother type.
These films use the old style models and painted glass
for special effects. One of my favorites in "Return" are the floating
gold bricks that keep crashing into the bad guys get-away car! Just
remember when stealing gold, it weighs a lot more than you think and,
watch out for those wires!
