I first purchased a couple of these Disney movies on VHS many years ago and now own them all on DVD. My family has since upgraded our home entertainment system and look forward to adding more Disney Blu-ray movies to our collection. There were 5 iconic Disney animated movies newly released to Blu-ray on August 21, 2012.
