Bedknobs and Broomsticks Blu-ray

Posted May 14, 2014 12:28 PM by Webmaster

Walt Disney PicturesWalt Disney Home Entertainment is set to release director Robert Stevenson's Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray this summer. The classic 1971 musical stars Angela Lansbury, David Tomlinson, Roddy McDowall, Sam Jaffe, Bob Holt and Dal McKennon, and makes its Special Edition Blu-ray debut on August 12th.

Synopsis: When young Charlie, Carrie and Paul (Ian Weighill, Cindy O'Callaghan and Roy Snart) move to a small village during World War II, they discover their host, Miss Price (Angela Lansbury), is an apprentice witch. Although her early attempts at magic create hilarious results, she successfully casts a traveling spell on an ordinary bedknob, and they fly to the fantastic, animated Isle of Naboombu to find a powerful spell that will save England.

Disney has yet to detail complete tech specs or special features.

On Amazon it says that it's the 117 minute version. I wonder if it will also contain the extended cut

This better be the theatrical cut, because the assembly cut sucks!!

This better be the restored longer version. The Disney company cut quite a bit out of the film, which was later restored for DVD, and it expands the love story between Lansbury and Tomlinson. Sadly they couldn't find the video footage for the cut song, "Step in the Right Direction" but it is included as an audio presentation on the extras.

This film premiered in HD on HDNET a while ago and it is the shorter version. It would be absolutely awful if Disney did not use the elements they put together for the longer edition. Some of the voice-overs were used, Angela Lansbury came in and did some dialogue of scenes they no longer had the audio for.

I won't be buying this if it is the general release version, clearly the expanded version makes so much more sense and adds some very important material.

Love this movie! Saw it alone at the theatre when I was 6 upon its original release. Strange to think of how many times I went alone to the theatre when I was ages 4 thru 8 but that was certainly a different time in our history. I have been awaiting this blu ray release for a long time now.

Thank you Walt Disney Company.

One of my favorite movies back during my childhood (must've been the combination of witchcraft vs. Nazis in a Disney movie, along with a side trek to the Laff-a-Lympics prototype), but one would hope they would include both the theatrical version AND the extended cut on the blu. Or does Disney require their Complaints Department to meet some kind of yearly quota?

I'm sorry, guys, but I absolutely HATE the extended cut. It just goes on, and on, and on, and on, and the redubbing of some seems is just horrible! I just want them to release the theatrical version, I'm sick of the extended cut.

Why would i buy this if its not the extended cut, which i own on dvd and previously i had the Laserdisc. Hopefully it will have both.

Hopefully this has both cuts. Even though I watched the extended cut last year and found it to be kind of on the long side. Prefer the theatrical cut.

Never seen it. But I'll bite. It appears to be at least partly live-action - somewhat of a rarity for Disney on BD. Anything to encourage them to dig into their live-action "vault" again. That thing's been sealed up way too tight in recent years.

Well guys. I think we have reached a pinnacle of Blu-rays. This, Super Mario Bros. and perhaps one day; a Predator transfer that doesn't suck, are the holy grails of my Blu-ray adventure. Unless I'm missing something else.

Saw this just one time when I was a small kid. And remember loving it (mostly). That armored ghost soldiers scene thought scared the crap out of me.

Great news, this one definitely takes me back to being a kid...I don't know much about what versions of the movie exist but I'll probably pick it up regardless if it's a decent transfer so my 4 year old can enjoy the magic too.

I just discovered the listing on amazon.
Release Date: August 12, 2014
Run Time: 117 minutes

I hope the run time is wrong. The original run time should be 137 or 139 minutes.
