4K UHD Disc is the best way to view films today. I realize people believe streaming is the best and only way to watch movies and t.v. shows. The thing is unless you live in an area that has fiber optic running into your home your not getting true 4K. As far as this film on 4K Disney has done a good job with the transfer. Animated films are sometimes not always done well when transferred. The colors improvements are very visibly done. Add too the blacks look just as good. The audio has been remixed and also a nice improvement. Hopefully Disney will keep remastering there back catalog titles. There is a market for it.
I enjoyed watching this movie a lot. I first watched this movie in the theater. I could not wait until the movie was released into a 4K DVD. The 4K video is excellent, much better than blu ray or standard DVD quality. I don't mind watching it over and over again.
The steelbook on its own is a five star steelbook! It's gorgeous and fits the art style of the film perfectly! An honest must-own steel!
The movie itself is really good but not great. I want to give huge credit to Disney for including an interview with the original director before she was fired halfway through filming as they did not like her "take" on it. It's a huge reason that the last half of this movie feels completely different than the first, and it's what's holding it back from being a classic. Things don't pay off that are clearly setup, etc. But again, on the special features Disney does not shy away from letting her be interviewed, and that is awesome and very rare for a company like Disney to talk about anything bad or negative that happened during the making of a particular movie.
So, four star movie and a five star steelbok!
