The Lion King and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital

There are 2 movies that you must get that are coming out on DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital soon.
The Lion King, is seriously one of my favorite Disney movies of all time. I love Simba, and grew up singing “I just can’t wait to be king”, but would change it to “queen”. I’m excited to let you know that Disney is bring The Lion King back on DVD, Blu-Ray, and Digital on Aug 15 (DVD) and Aug 29 (Blu-Ray). I have a 14 year old and a 5 year old. They are perfect ages for me to watch The Lion King with over and over!



My kids and I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in the theater, so when we got it on DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital we couldn’t wait to open it and watch it again. We can’t wait for a 3rd to come out. Chris Pratt is a favorite of mine, but who doesn’t love Groot and in Vol 2 Groot is a baby (so cute). So make sure you buy your copy. You can even get it in 4K Ultra HD on Aug 22nd.


The Lion King



“The Lion King” follows the adventures of Simba, a feisty lion cub who cannot wait to be king, as he searches for his destiny in the great “Circle of Life.” The film earned a Golden Globe® for Best Motion Picture—Comedy or Musical and inspired a Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical that is currently the third longest-running musical in Broadway history. In 2019, a reimagined live-action film, helmed by Jon Favreau, will delight audiences with the thrilling retelling of the original tale utilizing groundbreaking technological advances—as only Disney can do.
“The Lion King” is the fifth title to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection, which includes groundbreaking films created or inspired by the imagination and legacy of Walt Disney, featuring timeless stories and characters that have touched generations.
