Being the third best animated film of a particular year may not feel like that much of a compliment, but when you’re talking about Kung Fu Panda and Wall-e it sure isn’t an insult. I enjoyed Bolt far more in the theaters than I expected (read the original review) and I’m happy to report the movie holds up well on DVD.
The film is available in three versions. The single-disc version only includes the 4-minute short “Super Rhino” giving us a peak at the character’s fevered dreams. The two-disc edition also includes a digital copy of the film, deleted scenes, behind the scenes with John Travolta and Miley Cyrus singing “I Thought I Lost You,” and featurettes on the making of the film, the voice cast, and director Byron Howard and consultant John Lasseter. The Blu-ray includes all the above plus BD-Live features, a Bolt video game, and an art gallery section.
Although I thoroughly enjoy the film this isn’t one I need extras for, and, unless you’re a die-hard extra junkie or already moved onto Blu-ray, I’d suggest the single-disc (which I found priced as low as $13.99) should do you fine. Any way you go, Bolt is one of those movies worth adding to your DVD collection.
