Wizards - 35th Anniversary Edition Review

Just released to Blu-ray for the first time ever last week, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment brings us The 35th Anniversary Edition of Wizards - A Ralph Bakshi Film.  My family and I receive a review copy of this movie and honestly I had never heard of this film.  It was the first ever animated film made by Twentieth Century Fox.  This book/Blu-ray of the film is a must have for collectors!  This is a fantasy film and my husband really liked it despite never hearing about it.  This Blu-ray also contains some great special features such as the 24-page Collectible Book Packaging and a commentary by the director - Ralph Bakshi.  It is a very interesting animated film - not really one for the kiddos though.


Twentieth Century Fox’s first-ever animated film, created by renowned director Ralph Bakshi, WIZARDS appears in a 35th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray + Book release on March 13 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Celebrating its 35th anniversary, the “epic fantasy of peace and magic” stars the voice talent of Mark Hamill (Star Wars Saga).  The special edition Blu-ray + Book release is a must-have for fans and collectors, featuring 24-pages of amazing artwork from the film, some of the artwork never-before-seen, and a special message from Bakshi!

Set on a post-apocalyptic Earth, this fantasy adventure follows the story of Avatar, the kindly, eccentric sorcerer-ruler of Montagar, a rainbow paradise inhabited by elves and fairies.  Avatar's evil brother, Blackwolf, dominates Scortch, a bleak land of goblins and wraiths.  When the power-hungry Blackwolf attacks Montagar, Avatar, accompanied only by a spirited young woman and a courageous elf, must enter the darkness of Scortch to save his world.


You can purchase The 35th Anniversary Edition of Wizards on Amazon for only $24.99!
