E.B. Mommy’s Report:
If you’d read my review on the movie after its Earth Day release in the theaters, you’d know that Oscar has won over our hearts!
The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack is definitely worth an add to the family library especially if you’ve loved Disneynature‘s annual feature releases. This one is a definite winner, thanks to Oscar.
The family will laugh at his adorable antics (the “chew” scene takes the cake!) and smile at cuteness personified in the chimp’s being. Before you know it he will become a family name during conversations around the table! (Ask me!!)
And the bonus features are fantastic…
especially the making of the movie (hats off to dedicated teams!) and the mini episodes.
