If you're a huge Disney fan like I am, then the best present you could receive this Christmas is one of these Limited Edition Disney SteelBooks from Zavvi*. I have been lucky enough to receive one of these to share with you all. Having just purchased Maleficent on Blu Ray, I thought it was only fitting to add Sleeping Beauty to my collection, which is number 16 in the list of Disney Classics.
The artwork inside the case is stunning and is so much better than the boring DVD cases you can get which are just black inside. On the front cover, you have the classic Sleeping Beauty scene with Aurora sleeping and Prince Philip about to wake her. In the middle where the Blu Ray sits, is the beautiful scene of Aurora lying in her dream like sleep and on the back cover is Maleficent looking like a true villain.
The steelbook case ensures that the Blu Ray is protected from damage as it is a bit more sturdy than normal DVD or Blu Ray cases.
I have a classic DVD version of Sleeping Beauty from when it was originally released and it is amazing to see the difference in quality between that and this Blu Ray version. The picture is so clear and crisp and its great that Disney have been able to maintain the same standard of "classic" film whilst not compromising on quality when they have digitally remastered the older classic films.
Zavvi have a large collection of these Limited Edition Steelbooks, including Frozen which will definitely be hugely popular this Christmas as well as all the classics, such as Pocahontas, Fantasia and The Aristocats and many more. The prices of each steelbook range, depending on the title you choose but range from £12.99 to £24.99. Sleeping Beauty is currently available for £19.99.
I recently counted up my Disney DVD/Blu Ray collection and lets just say I could watch one a week for a whole year and still have some left over to see me into the next year! Although this is the first steelbook I have ever owned and I will definitely be adding more to my collection in the future.
So if you're stuck for last minute gift inspiration for the Disney lover in your house, head out to Zavvi now to pick up one of these!
