Discover the magic of a child’s imagination as Disney’s Bedtime Stories is released on Blu-ray and DVD on April 7, 2009.
The blockbuster tale stars Adam Sandler as a luckless hotel handyman in a classic story of good versus evil with a magical twist. Full of daredevil stunts, captivating scenery and lots of laughs, Bedtime Stories is a fun movie families will love watching time and time again.
The story follows Skeeter Bronson (Sandler), a hapless bachelor who is forced to do odd jobs in the hotel his father used to own. When his sister Wendy (Courtney Cox) asks him to look after her children so she can job hunt in Arizona, Skeeter realises he hardly knows his niece and nephew.
In a bid to entertain the kids, Skeeter concocts far-fetched bedtime stories set in far away lands, always casting himself as the hero. Then the trio’s tall-tales start to have bizarre parallels in the real world. Gum balls fall out of the sky in Medieval England, giant bogie monsters escape in outer space, and dwarves thwart Skeeter’s attempts to kiss a fair lady in the Wild West. Aware of the power of his storytelling Skeeter tries to manipulate his real life with disastrous and hilarious consequences.
Featuring an all-star cast including Jonathan Pryce, Russell Brand, Guy Pearce, Richard Griffiths and a bug eyed, break-dancing guinea pig named Bugsy, the film has something for the whole family and the magic doesn’t stop at the end of the movie. The Blu-ray disc and DVD both feature a selection of entertaining extras including:
• Bugsy Eyes – an exclusive bedtime story starring Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider and Bugsy the guinea pig
• It’s Bugsy – a comedic look at the scene-stealing guinea pig
• Until Gravity Do Us Part – a behind the scenes look at how the zero gravity fight scene was created
• To All the Little People – a backstage look at Adam Sandler alongside his child co-stars
• The Cutting Room floor – a selection of deleted images with an optional commentary by Adam Sandler
• Laughing is Contagious – outtakes and bloopers
• Dylan & Cole: Blu-ray is Suite (DVD Only)
The high definition Blu-ray Disc takes the movie’s stunning sets to a whole new level. With crystal clear picture quality five times the sharpness of standard DVD and 7.1 surround sound, fans will feel even more immersed in the imaginary worlds Skeeter and the kids create.
The Blu-ray Disc also includes Bedtime Stories on DVD, allowing those without Blu-ray Disc players to future-proof their collections. It also means those who already have a Blu-ray player at home – be it a standalone player or as part of the Sony PS3 system – will get an additional disc for other standard players around the house or portable DVD systems for when they are on the move.
