Two big releases are on the horizon for Disney in February. First up is 101 Dalmatians Diamond Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital HD & SD, available on February 10. The new Blu-ray edition of the original 1961 animated classic will feature a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1. Another option to buy 101 Dalmatians is via the new Disney Movies Anywhere app (the app itself is available to download for free on iTunes, see more below).

New bonus features included on 101 Dalmatians Diamond Edition include the all-new short “The Further Adventures of Thunderbolt.” There’s also the 1961 Walt Disney Presents: The Best Doggoned Dog in the World, “Lucky Dogs” featurette, DisneyView, and “Dalmatians 101: Hosted by Cameron Boyce.” Also included is a selection of “Classic Bonus Features.”
