Thank you Disney!,
This review is from: Return from Witch Mountain (Special Edition) (DVD)
As someone who works to historically preserve music, I think Disney has succeeded in not only preserving this film on DVD, but they deserve to be applauded for putting in all the extras, even if it's not conisdered the best of Disney films. The print, audio and package is great.
I loved this film as a kid, and it was fun to re-watch as an adult. Ok, it's not going to win the award for the best film ever. It's definitely light Disney live action comparable to many of it's other 70s films. True, the original Escape To Witch Mountain was better, but this has some great moments of it's own. Also, it's got a fabulous cast, Bette Davis and Christopher Lee, and those incredible kids!!! Can you tell I like this film despite it's silliness?
What makes it all more special, are the extras. They are laid out kind of strangely, and if you don't look around, you could miss them. The highlight of these is the documentary, "Making the 'return' trip." If you wondered what ever happened to Kim and Iake, as well as the members of the gang (can you believe they actually grew up?), the crew, and director, they're all here. Thank you everyone at Disney for putting the extra effort into this release. Keep up the good work!
