      "The Book of Pooh - Stories From the Heart"
      ...available here.
      While Disney didn't invent Winnie the Pooh, nor first animate him, it certainly has Americanized the British bear into a cartoon character hardly resembling A.A. Milne's original 1924 creation. Although Disney's four "Storybook Classics" titles (from 1966) were somewhat faithful to Milne's concept, subsequent titles (especially in the "Playtime" and "Learning" series) descended into second-rate TV fare. This is all to say that Disney has redeemed itself.

      Also available on VHS.

      WORD FOR WORD

      "A llama?! He's supposed to be dead!" --Yzma (Eartha Kitt), whose slightly altered curse creates "The Emperor's New Groove." Disney's latest animation feature is coming to DVD in May in standard and ultimate collector's editions.
      ...Disney DVD here.
      Charming tale of a good witch (Angela Lansbury) who helps out three children in World War II England. Star David Tomlinson reteams with his "Mary Poppins" director Robert Stevenson with solid success. Winner of the Oscar for Visual Effects (and nominated for five others), the film has been shortened over the years. This 30th-anniversary edition is restored to the original length, and the DVD contains cartoon shorts, a still-frame art gallery, and behind-the-scenes coverage.

      "The Sword in the Stone"
      ...Disney DVD here.
      The King Arthur legend gets the Disney treatment. Wolfgang Reitherman, the director of the original "Winnie the Pooh" shorts and "The Jungle Book," keeps the keen visual styles of those films, though the "Stone" script hasn't aged as well as other Disney classics. The DVD contains cartoon shorts, a still-frame art and photo gallery, and a 1957 half-hour TV special on magic hosted by Walt Disney.

      "Remember the Titans (Widescreen Edition)"
      ...Disney DVD here.
      With only one major star (Denzel Washington), an appealing cast of fresh unknowns, and a winning emphasis on substance over self-indulgent style, Boaz Yakin's "Remember the Titans" is, like "Rudy" before it, a football movie that will be fondly remembered by anyone who sees it. Also available in a full-screen format.

      ALSO AVAILABLE

      "Toy Story"
      ...Disney DVD here.
      --Groundbreaking computer-animated feature in a single-disc edition
