“Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection” is in the vein of the two releases Pixar shorts compilations. What we get are compilations of shorts previously used as a feature lead-ins or DVD bonus features on bigger releases. But, your kids won’t care. They want to see Frozen Fever. “Frozen Fever” is a nice short that scratches that Frozen itch before the sequel comes out, so get ready for that.
You get Feast, Get a Horse and Paperman which have been previously released. But, it doesn’t matter. This release is a celebration of everything that makes Disney great when it comes to animation shorts. Elegant tales that unfold at a quick clip and builds worlds. Well, unless you count the already established Frozen, Tangled and Prep & Landing environments. So, there’s that.
The Blu-Ray comes with a DVD, Digital Copy and a featurette with TJ Miller. The A/V Quality is amazing for these shorts. The 1080p transfers border on reference quality. Plus, the DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track pumps all channels to their peak. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to animation fans.
Release Date: 8/18/15
