DVD Review: Disney's DUCKTALES WOO-OO


Being a huge fan of the original series, I had my doubts about this reboot. But after watching the Disney XD premiere I became a fan of this new series. Fans of the current series can now watch the series’ first DVD release, Ducktales: Woo-oo!
This DVD features the premiere double-length episode event, Woo-oo!, and a few shorts as bonus features. I would have loved to see additional full episodes as part of this release but this will do for now.
The animation style of the new series is reminiscent of the original Carl Barks comics in terms of color schemes and comic textures. There are also a ton of Easter eggs that pay homage to the original series.
The most noticeable difference from the original series is that Huey, Dewey, and Louie have distinct personalities. Webby is also an essential part of the team as she is sort of a McDuck historian. Scrooge and Launchpad are essentially the same as in the original series. Donald Duck is here for the majority of the adventures this time around. Mrs. Beakley serves as both a housekeeper and a bodyguard, and the loyal butler Duckworth, isn't here in this new series or at least not yet.
This special begins when Huey, Dewey and Louie discover that their uncle is the one and only trillionaire treasure hunter Scrooge McDuck. Sadly, Scrooge hasn't been on an adventure in years. The nephews along with Webby stir up some supernatural trouble in the mansion and this leads everyone to find the lost city of Atlantis. In the end, they discover that family is the greatest adventure of all. 
Bonus Features
Welcome to Duckburg Shorts
  • Meet Donald (1:02)
  • Meet Scrooge (0:32)
  • Meet Huey (0:32)
  • Meet Webby (0:32)
  • Meet Launchpad (0:47)
  • Meet Mrs. Beakley (0:32)
Conclusion
The reboot of DuckTales is wonderful taking visual and style cues from the original comic book source and the original animated series while still being its own series. Hopefully this first DVD release, while short on content, is still a worthy release and hopefully the first of many.

DVD Review: Disney's TANGLED QUEEN FOR A DAY


Last spring saw the beginning of Tangled the Series, which was kicked off with a movie musical, Tangled: Before Ever After. The second DVD release for the show is the double-length musical episode, Queen for a Day.
When King Frederic and Queen Arianna leave town to celebrate their anniversary, Rapunzel becomes Queen For A Day. When a blizzard strikes and threatens her parents, Rapunzel finds herself with some tough decisions to make. Can Rapunzel and her friends save the day?
There are also new original songs by Alan Menken and Glen Slater. “I’ve Got This” sung by Rapunzel, Casandra, and Eugene. Jeremy Jordan as Varian sings “Let Me Make You Proud.” There is also a new Snugly Duckling classic in “Listen Up.” 

Bonus Features
Inside the Journal Shorts
  • First Entry (1:02)
  • Cassandra (1:02)
  • Queen Arianna (1:02)
  • King Frederick (1:02)
Conclusion

Tangled: The Series - Queen for a Day is a fun musical episode that fans of the series will love adding this to their collection. I wish that Disney had included additional full episodes to round out this disc. If you or your child are huge Rapunzel fans, this TV special is worth adding to your collection.
