In celebration of the 30th Anniversary of The Fox and The Hound, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment released The Fox and The Hound & The Fox and The Hound 2 as a 2-Movie Collection on Blu-ray Hi-Def & DVD Combo Pack.
The Fox and the Hound 30th Anniversary Synopsis:
When Tod, an orphaned fox cub meets Copper, a coonhound puppy, they make a pledge to be lifelong friends, not realizing that Copper is being groomed to hunt wild animals, including foxes. Copper spends the winter with his owner, Slade, and an older dog, Chief, tracking animals at a remote cabin. When they return, a lonely Tod eagerly greets his old playmate but is stunned when a reluctant Copper joins Slade and Chief to chase Tod through the forest. During the pursuit, Tod escapes but Chief is seriously injured. Seeking revenge, Copper hunts down Tod only to find himself confronting an even bigger enemy, which he and Tod must face together.
The Fox and the Hound 2 Synopsis:
In The Fox and the Hound 2, music takes centerstage as Tod contemplates joining up with “The Singin’ Strays,” a group of harmonizing dogs appearing at the local county fair but dreaming of hitting the big time at the Grand OleOpry. While Tod does his best to fit in with his new friends, Copper finds himself relegated to “roadie,” a position he begins to resent. With the encouragement of Dixie, the “diva” of “The Singin” Strays,” Copper manages to sabotage an important audition. The next day, their differences forgotten, Copper and Tod team up and, using Copper’s superior tracking skills, they locate the Grand Ole Opry talent scout who signs “The Singin’ Strays” (minus Tod, who chooses his friendship with Copper over fame) on the spot.
I haven’t seen this movie in such a long time. It was pretty much like watching it for the first time again. My kids sat through the entire movie. They did a lot of “eye covering” because it was a little suspenseful for them. The Fox and the Hound 2 seems like a completely different movie. It’s not a sequel to the first in my opinion. They’re both really cute movies. The kids preferred the 2nd one over the first.
Disney has included five unique bonus features that provide consumers with the ability to further immerse themselves in the storyline, its history and characters themselves with an entertaining look inside the fascinating collection of unlikely friendships in the animal kingdom, Disney’s historic and legendary animators, the making of the music and more.
