On August 9th, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment releases THE FOX AND THE HOUND & THE FOX AND THE HOUND 2 as a 2-Movie Collection on Blu-ray Hi-Def & DVD Combo Pack in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the original film. 

In the tradition of heart-warming films, such as Bambi and Dumbo, comes Disney’s classic tales that taught us the power of friendship in The Fox and the Hound and The Fox and the Hound 2, in a special 30th Anniversary 2-Movie Collection.  For the first time ever in high-definition, consumers can now experience the brilliant, humor-filled adventures of best friends Copper and Tod in an all-new digitally restored version of the original 1981 film, arriving to stores on August 9, 2011.  

 Featuring an all-star cast of voice talents, toe-tapping music and fantastic bonus features, consumers can take home two of Disney’s beloved “tails.” The Fox and the Hound and The Fox and the Hound 2, 2-Movie Collection features both movies in a single 3-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack.  This release provides families with the value, versatility and opportunity to enjoy their favorite movies how they want, when they want and on the entertainment platform of choice – whether it’s in the home, on a portable device and/or in the car. 
My daughter was so excited to watch this movie because she loves dogs! It's was really fun to see her connect with the movie. She would point out when the dog was sad and when Copper leaves until Spring she started asking where "woof" went. She really enjoyed the film and was excited when I told her she could also watch the second one!

I also enjoyed the movie. This is an old classic and brought back memories of watching it when I was younger. While it is a little sad at time, it's also very heartwarming! It's fun to see the relationships of all the animals. Big Momma (the owl) watches over Tod even once he finds a home. The wood pecker and the other bird are hysterical! And even Copper finds a relationship with the stubborn old hunting dog, Chief.

The movie is full of action and adventure. You often find yourself on the edge of your seat as Tod has to escape the hunter. You also can find your eyes welling up with tears, both from sadness and heartfelt moments. It's a great family film!

And the adventures only continue with The Fox and the Hound 2. This picks up in the middle of the Fox and the Hound. It's after Tod and Copper become friends, but they are still young. It's a story with a lesson as Copper and Tod's friendship is tested and mistakes are made. It's a good movie to teach loyalty and being true to your friends. This one is a bit more humorous and lighthearted, but still lots of fun!
