Bedknobs and Broomsticks Releases Today!


This classic that I loved to watch as a little girl is being released today (Spet. 8th) on DVD! Bedknobs and Broomsticks: Enchanted Musical Edition is now fully restored and remastered. While watching again for the first time in A LONG time- I had forgotten so many great scences. I love the magic involved and really love how nice the movie looks after being restored. The deleted song "Step in the Right Direction" was cute. It's so fun to see things that didn't make it into the movie!

An apprentice witch (Angela Lansbury), 3 kids and a cynical conman (David Tomlinson) search for the missing component to a magic spell useful to the defense of Britain during World War II. Bonus material includes “The Wizards of Special Effects,” a behind-the-scenes look at the award winning effects used in the film led by Jennifer Stone from Wizards of Waverly Place, and more!


Bonus Features Included are:

THE WIZARDS OF SPECIAL EFFECTS - Hosted By Jennifer Stone From Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place who becomes a Special Effects Wizard Apprentice and learns about the academy award winning 1971 special effects in Bedknobs and Broomsticks, then compares them to the special effects magic of her current show Disney’s Wizard’s Of Waverly Place.

MUSIC MAGIC: The Sherman Brothers – Take a look behind the scenes from a musical point of view of Bedknobs and Broomsticks with The Sherman Brothers, Angela Lansbury and Scott MacQueen. This featurette explores the origins of the songs, including what was deleted and what made it into the final version of the film.

DELETED SONG – “A Step in the Right Direction”

“PORTOBELLO ROAD” Recording Session – A rare clip of David Tomlinson’s recording of the song “Portobello Road”

Check out two of my favorite clips:
