Families everywhere can enjoy Dr Seuss’ The Grinch on Digital now, and on 4K Ultra HD, 3D Blu-ray™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand from 18 March, 2019. From Illumination and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, the film is based on Dr Seuss’ beloved tale about a cynical grouch who goes on a mission to steal Christmas from others only to feel his own heart grow three sizes larger through unexpected friendships.
Narrated by Grammy Award® winner and Oscar® nominee Pharrell Williams, Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch stars Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch as the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt Crumpit with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. The voice cast includes Rashida Jones as Donna Who, Kenan Thompson as Bricklebaum, Cameron Seely as Cindy-Lou Who, and featuring legendary actress Angela Lansbury as the mayor of Whoville.
Harriet had already seen the film at the cinema and was thrilled to be able to watch it at home, although she did warn me: "I did cry at some of the story." Mainly though it was laugh-out-loud moments as well as sadder scenes (Grinch as a child).
The animation is wonderful and Grinch's cave home is full of wonderful, labour-saving devices, overseen by the fabulous Max. Harriet loved the reindeer family who came to save the day when Grinch had a change of mind.
Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch is a perfect night in for the whole family.
The new home entertainment edition contains more than 60 minutes of bonus content, including three mini-movies: Dog Days of Winter starring the Grinch and his heroically loyal dog Max; and Yellow is the New Black and Santa’s Little Helpers, both starring the lovable Minions.
It also includes stunning featurettes, a how-to-draw tutorial and much more.
