30th Anniversary Special Edition: Mickey's Christmas Carol

Available NOW on Blu-ray and DVD

Ring in the holidays with a new 30th Anniversary Special Edition of Mickey’s Christmas Carol. Disney’s timeless tale sparkles like never before on Blu-ray and Digital Copy, with fully-restored classic holiday shorts, plus all-new bonus features!

Make the season merry as Mickey, Goofy, Donald and all their pals star in a heartwarming retelling of Dickens’ unforgettable holiday tale. Ebenezer Scrooge (Scrooge McDuck) is far too greedy to understand that Christmas is a time for kindness and generosity. But with the guidance of some wise ghosts (Goofy and Jiminy Cricket) and a bunch of newfound friends, Scrooge learns to embrace the spirit of the season. Share this wonderful holiday treat with the whole family!

My Thoughts:
This movie has been around for just about as long as I have and has been a family favorite for just as long. We love to watch holiday movies all season long as a family and this always makes the list.

The classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge is brought to a whole new life with the famous Disney characters. Scrooge McDuck is obviously the perfect choice to depict the money hungry Scrooge. Mickey depicts the lovable Bob Cratchit with his lovely wife (Minnie) and sweet children.

This is a "must see" family holiday movie. We all get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays... as we can often see traits of Mr. Scrooge in ourselves. This movie is the perfect way to talk to children about what the holiday season is all about. Money.... or gifts... will not a holiday make. But the love of family and friends... and simply being together... will make for the Merriest Christmas of all!

I would highly recommend you check this out this holiday season. And with it being the 30th Anniversary Edition, there's no better time to add it to your collection!
