Santa Buddies: The Legend Of Santa Paws Blu-Ray Review
Disney’s Santa Buddies: The Legend Of Santa Paws, is a new direct-to-DVD & Blu-Ray holiday movie featuring those Disney talking dogs, the buddies – well known for their appearances in Air Buddies, Snow Buddies, & Space Buddies, that kids everywhere adore.
These days kids think that the holiday season is all about presents. If you want your children to learn about the true meaning of Christmas – giving - then Santa Buddies is a fun way to do just that (depending on how you as a parent view the meaning of the holiday season that is). In this new installment, puppy paws and the buddies go on a fun-filled and heartwarming adventure from the buddies’ hometown of Fernfield all the way to the North Pole to save Christmas!
Sure, the effects aren’t amazing, Santa is not very believable from the viewpoint of an adult, and there are some silly scenes that could have been done better but honestly kids (mine included) love these movies. Plus Santa Buddies shares an important message about the holiday season not to mention it’s full of characters (both human and non-human) that show redemption, compassion, and kindness which is something I can get behind. Overall, if you are looking for some holiday cheer for your family, Santa Buddies is a great movie to start the season off with!
The blu-ray features of this movie are impressive and very crisp. However, it’s not a big enough difference in my opinion to warrant going out and purchasing a blu-ray player at this moment. The Blu-Ray features include: Sing Along To Christmas Carols With The Buddies and Santa Claus Is Coming To Town Music Video. These extra features are also available in the DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack. Santa Buddies will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray/DVD Combo pack on November 24, 2009.
