No. 1: UP

Two words: LOVED IT! Honestly, we fell in love with Disney Pixar’s UP the first time we saw it. And now that we’ve experienced the Blu-Ray version of the film, we love it even more – something we didn’t think possible. On November 10, 2009, you’ll get to see exactly what we mean – that’s the date the UP Blu-Ray & DVD Combo Pack comes out. But you don’t have to wait that long – check out the official Kidzworld review, below.

No. 2: Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs :: Diamond Collection

Way back in 1937 Walt Disney made his first feature-length animated film: Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. This is the movie that opened the door for thousands and thousands of other well-known and loved animated films. Without Snow White, her friendly troupe of seven hard-working, diamond-mining dwarfs and her evil stepmother, we may not have movies like Monsters Vs. Aliens, Cars and Wall-E to enjoy today.

Santa Buddies: The Legend Of Santa Paws is the fourth picture about talking puppies by Disney that’s gone straight to Blu-Ray/DVD. It follows the canine adventure called Space Buddies, released about nine months ago, about young golden retriever pups aboard a space shuttle headed toward the moon.

No. 4: Tinker Bell And The Lost Treasure

In this brand-new Tinker Bell adventure from Disney DVD, the feisty fairy goes off in search of a magic mirror lost in the hold of a sunken pirate ship – without Peter Pan. When the Fairy Queen calls upon Tinker Bell to make her a new ceremonial scepter to celebrate the coming of the rare blue harvest moon, things don’t go exactly as planned. So when the little fairy that could catches wind of the legendary and lost magic mirror that she thinks will help solve all her problems, she decides to set off from Pixie Hollow to find it with the help of her lightning-bug companion, Blaze.

No. 5: DisneyNature :: EARTH

Earth is a brand-new full-length documentary from DisneyNature that takes a look at three animal families living across the globe. It shows the hardships they face in trying to survive. Watch how polar bears, elephants and [kwlink 2479]whales[/kwlink[/b] live, love and survive against certain odds. The film is narrated by James Earl Jones. We loved this film – it’s educational AND entertaining at the same time – trust us, you won’t be bored sitting through the stories of these amazing animal families! The movie actually shares parts of nature’s beauty that most of us will never have a chance to see for ourselves in person, which is really cool. At the same time (also really cool), it encourages us all to be more aware and take better care of our environment.

No. 6: Monsters, Inc.

Most of you already know the story behind Monsters, Inc., but just in case you don’t, here’s a quick recap. The movie takes place in a city of monsters called Monstropolis, which is powered by an energy company called Monsters, Inc.. Inside the company’s factory are countless doors that act as portals to kids’ closets so that monsters acting as “scarers” can go in he children to scream. Kids’ screams are what power the entire city. The one law all scarers abide by is that children are poisonous and no contact between them and the monsters is allowed!
