Disney's The Jungle Book is such a classic–I don't think there's anyone who hasn't seen at least a portion of the film at one time or another!
I can remember watching The Jungle Book as a child and being so envious of the adventure Mowgli was living. Now I get to share the adventure with my own kids!
The Jungle Book Diamond Edition swings onto Blu-ray, DVD and digital in The Jungle Book Diamond Edition on February 11, 2014. I received a copy of the box set to review, and I couldn't be happier to say that the movie is just as wonderful as I remembered it to be!
The only thing that's changed about The Jungle Book is that it looks and sounds better than ever. The magic of digital high-definition really makes a big difference in the actual viewing experience of classic animation, and The Jungle Book Diamond Edition is no exception!

My kids almost always favor classic Disney movies over the modern, computer-animated films of their generation, and this was no exception. Haiden and Piper are 4 and 5 years old, and they absolutely loved The Jungle Book.
The Jungle Book Diamond Edition will be released on February 11, 2014. It's available for pre-order now!
