Disney's classic film Pinocchio is finally available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. This is the Walt Disney Signature Collection which means there are some amazing all new bonus features that any Disney fan needs to see!
First watch the Pinocchio trailer. If you've ever seen this movie I promise it will bring back memories. If you Disney even half as much as I do you'll get chills!
I'm celebrating Pinocchio's release by sharing some clips from two amazing bonus features. These clips are straight from the bonus features that can be found on the Blu-ray and digital versions of Pinocchio. They're extra special because they've captured some of the early days of animation. You can learn about the processes Walt Disney used when he created Pinocchio!
The first clip from Pinocchio showsWalt Disney's process as he created Pleasure Island in the film.
The second clip is short but there's so much fun and feeling in it! I loved hearing about the history and the personal details about Walt Disney that I didn't already know!
