Rise of the Guardians Blu-ray DVD Review #RiseoftheGuardians

Back in December I posted my review for the Rise of the Guardians movie and shared how much we enjoyed it. I could enjoy watching it over and over again and now I can! DreamWorks Animation RISE OF THE GUARDIANS is now available on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and DVD on March 12, 2013.

Rise of the Guardians Blu-ray DVD

DreamWorks Animation’s RISE OF THE GUARDIANS has captured the imagination of audiences worldwide with a fun-filled and magical story about the legendary guardians—Jack Frost, the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and Sandman—together for the first time! When the evil Pitch threatens to take over the world, it’s up to our beloved heroes to protect the hopes and dreams of children everywhere. Filled with non-stop action and laughs, it’s a dazzling family film that’s being hailed as “an instant classic” (Nancy Jay, Daybreak USA).

Now just in time for Easter, RISE OF THE GUARDIANS will be available in a Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy Pack with UltraViolet™ or single-disc DVD, each of which includes two delightful hopping toy eggs inspired by the ones seen in the film (while supplies last—quantities are limited).

The Rise of the Guardians combo pack and single-disc DVD also include special features that take viewers behind-the-scenes to learn more about the magic used to bring the story to life.

I received the Rise of the Guardians combo pack Blu-ray + DVD and hopping eggs and it's so fun. The eggs are adorable and perfect for my son to play with as we head into Easter. They remind me of the eggs in the movie! I was also able to print out Easter themed coloring sheets and more from the DVD for him.

While my son enjoyed the Easter themed items, I enjoyed watching the Rise of the Guardians story again and this time with Filmmakers’ Commentary along with other special features including
