2017 has been a bumper year for Disney at the cinema. The company released a number of great films onto the big screen this year. Films like Beauty & the Beast, Cars 3, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge. If you missed them the good news is that they’re now available on Blu-Ray and DVD so you can enjoy them at home together with family and friends this holiday season.
Here’s my top picks of Disney movies on DVD for the holidays:
“You’re welcome” is the new catchy tune on the block! Moana is a spirited teenager who from a young age has felt the pull of the ocean to explore beyond the safety of her own island. She sets sail on an action-packed journey to enlist the help of demigod Maui to help save her people. Moana is a bright, colourful and fun movie that the kids will enjoy.
