    "Atlantis - The Lost Empire (Collector's Edition)" MPAA rating: PG (Parental Guidance Suggested) Our price: $29.99 | You save: $10.00
    Available Here
    The Disney Studio was built on innovation in animation, so it seems ironic that "Atlantis" is both a bold departure and highly derivative, borrowing heavily from anime, video games, and graphic novels. Instead of songs and fuzzy little animals, the artists offer an action-adventure.... Also on VHS

    "Newsies" MPAA rating: PG (Parental Guidance Suggested) Our price: $23.99 | You save: $6.00
    Available Here
    In 1992 director Kenny Ortega (the choreographer for "Dirty Dancing") teamed with Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken ("The Little Mermaid," "Beauty and the Beast") to create a rousing, feel-good movie musical. "Newsies" is based on the true story of New York City newsboys who went on strike against the mighty Joseph Pulitzer in 1901. Robert Duvall portrays Pulitzer, and young Christian Bale ("Empire of the Sun"), who had never sung or danced, stars as the leader of the "newsies." Despite critical acclaim, the movie only found its audience years later as it became a huge fan favorite on video. Disney brings the musical to DVD in this special edition, which features a look at the source materials of the film and a first-time home video widescreen transfer. Also on VHS

    "Tron (20th Anniversary Collector's Edition)" MPAA rating: PG (Parental Guidance Suggested) Our price: $22.49 | You save: $7.50
    Available Here
    A new 90-minute documentary on the origins and making of "Tron" anchors this two-disc, 20th-anniversary set, and does a good job of showing the remarkable odds the filmmakers faced. The 15 minutes of computer graphics in the film were developed.... Also on VHS

    "Peter Pan (Special Edition)" MPAA rating: G (General Audience) Our price: $22.49 | You save: $7.50
    Available Here
    "Well, get on with it... continue my dear. I mustn't harm Peter. Madame, Captain Hook gives his word not to lay a finger, or a hook, on Peter Pan." --Captain Hook and his lying ways in "Peter Pan." The classic film returns to DVD and VHS in a Special Edition this February.

    "The Princess Diaries (Widescreen Edition)" MPAA rating: G (General Audience) Our price: $22.49 | You save: $7.50
    Available Here A thoroughly engaging fairy tale that's family friendly without being condescending, "The Princess Diaries" is your basic "Cinderella" makeover story given a fresh, affectionate twist courtesy of a game, energetic cast and a screenplay that skirts schmaltz in favor of gentle, effective... Also on VHS

    "Princess Of Thieves" MPAA rating: NR (Not Rated) Our price: $26.99 | You save: $3.00
    Available Here Robin Hood's legacy seems destined for obscurity due to the birth of his daughter, Gwyn, in "The Princess of Thieves." Raised by a devout uncle, Gwyn develops into a headstrong young woman who's resentful of her father's prolonged absences. When Robin Hood at last comes to... Also on VHS

    "Child Star - The Shirley Temple Story" MPAA rating: NR (Not Rated) Our price: $26.99 | You save: $3.00
    Available Here
    Newcomer Ashley Rose Orr sings and dances up a storm in this made-for-TV movie from Disney. Based on Shirley Temple Black's autobiography, "Child Star," the movie does an excellent job of depicting her life as a beacon of hope during the depression years. If Orr... Also on VHS
