Walt Disney Pictures has sent over this release announcement for Bolt, which will arrive this March on DVD and Blu-ray.
Bolt on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital
Fully awesome! For the first time ever Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release Bolt in high definition early as an exciting Blu-ray + DVD + Digital File combo on Sunday, March 22, 2009. Two days following, the standard DVD versions will be available on Tuesday, March 24, 2009. Plus, the DVD 2-disc Deluxe Edition and BD 3-Disc both include a special "DisneyFile" Digital Copy of the movie -- enabling DVD and Blu-ray owners to receive a digital version of Walt Disney Pictures’ Bolt in their choice of iTunes or Windows Media formats for the fan on the go! Bolt is jam packed with fully awesome bonus features including “Super Rhino,” a new exclusive short film starring Bolt’s biggest fan!
Nominated for two Golden Globe Awards for Best Animated Feature Film and Best Original Song (“I Thought I Lost You’), Bolt features the voices of Academy Award® nominee John Travolta (nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for Pulp Fiction, 1994 and Saturday Night Fever, 1977) as Bolt, the wonder dog and Miley Cyrus (“Hannah Montana”) as Penny, his “person.” The stellar voice cast also includes Susie Essman (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Mark Walton, Malcolm McDowell (“Heroes”) and James Lipton (“Inside the Actor’s Studio”). Bolt was also produced by Pixar co-founder and CGI pioneer John Lasseter (director of Toy Story, A Bug's Life and Cars).
Bolt (voiced by John Travolta) is the star of the biggest show in Hollywood. The only problem is, he thinks the whole thing is real. When the super dog is accidentally shipped to New York City and separated from Penny (voiced by Miley Cyrus), his beloved co-star and owner, Bolt springs into action to find his way home. Together with his hilarious new sidekicks Rhino (voiced by Mark Walton) – Bolt’s #1 Fan – and a street-smart cat named Mittens (voiced by Susie Essman), Bolt sets off on an amazing journey where he discovers he doesn’t need super powers to be a hero.
