101 Dalmatians is out on Blu-ray!

Walt Disney's 17th animated feature film, and one of my absolute favourites, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, is out of the Disney Vault! Not only is there no longer moratorium on it, but 101 is also now in glorious high-definition. The classic tale of Pongo, Perdita and their century-and-one of pups is out on Blu-ray for the first time today - and also re-released, with a whole host of special features, on DVD.

While it is a UK release, the good news for US and other worldwide fans is that it's listed on Amazon as being region free! I assume this isn't a mistake, and, while there'll be some hefty postage and packaging costs, it's a great addition to anyone's Disney collection.

With Cinderella and The Aristocats also recently released (and listed as region free too!), and the Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume 2 due out in just over a month here in the UK, it's certainly a good time to be a Disney fan. Now if they'd only get round to releasing Jungle Book on Blu-ray...

You can buy 101 Dalmatians on Blu Ray and DVD from HMV, or, slightly cheaper, from Amazon.


  1. I did an article about Disney's recent plans for home media, and how they've been dropping some titles from the Diamond line. Since the UK and other countries got this release, I have a feeling that we'll get it soon. Maybe sometime next spring. More on this :

    BTW, do you have the Blu-ray? Does it keep all the bonus features from the previous release? On a side note, this is a favorite of mine as well. It currently ranks at #8 or #9 on my best-to-worst Disney list.

    1. Indeed, I read the article! Great stuff Kyle, as per, very thorough and interesting. Mm, as I say though, it's region free, so you could buy it now anyway, if you were so inclined.

      And no, I might buy it in a few week to check out the bonus features. But I got the DVD for Christmas, so don't want to splash the cash just yet. My birthday in a week or so, hopefully that'll generate Disney funds! Haha. It's my third or so... behind Lion King and Jungle Book; maybe Pinocchio.

      I'll keep you informed, Kyle!
