Disney have announced the UK Blu-ray release of 101 Dalmatians on 3 September 2012. Walt Disney's 17th animated classic, 101 Dalmatians is a wild adventure starring the world’s most adorable dogs and the monochrome villain; Cruella de Vil. This is the tail-wagging story of Pongo and Perdita, a pair of Dalmatians who meet in a London park, arrange for their owners to marry and start a family themselves. They soon become the proud parents of fifteen pups, but disaster strikes when the litter is abducted by Cruella’s henchmen for her monstrous plan to make a fur coat out of their spotty skins. Can Pongo and Perdita save their pups from the clutches of evil Cruella and a diabolical fashion statement?
For its Blu-ray release the film has been "lovingly re-crafted into a high definition transfer" and boasts a host of bonus features including a number of abandoned song sequences such as "March of The one Hundred And One", "Cheerio, Good - Bye, Toodle-oo, Hip Hip!" and “Don't Buy A Parrot From A Sailor".
