20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment has tabbed Oct. 14 for the release of multiple Blu-ray and DVD editions of the DreamWorks Animation production of Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
The ARR is a deliberate 221 days (a savvy move positioning the film after the summer doldrums for better sales and retail action during the run-up to Christmas) … ticket sales came in at $110.6 million.
Director Rob Minkoff’s (Stuart Little, Stuart Little 2, The Lion King, etc.) animated tribute to the Rocky and Bullwinkle spin-off featuring the smarter-than-smart talking dog Mr. Peabody (Ty Burrell), his human sidekick, Sherman (voiced by Max Charles) and their adventures in time will be available as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack (with UltraViolet Digital Copy), a 3D/2D Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack (also with UltraViolet) and stand-alone DVD SKU.
Bonus features include a pair of featurettes — “Tour of the WABAC Machine” and “Time Travel: Mad Science.” Exclusive to the Blu-ray viewing options are the original introduction to the Mr. Peabody and Sherman characters from the Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends Show in 1959, the featurette titled “History’s Greatest Mysteries: A Dog and his Boy,” two interactive games — “Time Travel Memory Match Game” and “The WABAC Jigsaw Puzzle Game” — and more!
