In a world dominated by Redbox rentals, Netflix binges, and On-Demand viewing, DVDs and Blu-Rays have continued to survive through movies that people want to watch repeatedly as well as added features which go beyond the typical blooper reels and actually give us insights into the making of the film.
These insights often provide information about why certain decisions were made, voiceovers by the actors giving backstories in each of the scenes, and, of course, behind the scenes footage that shows how the special effects were created.
Something which should be well received by fans of the nearly $1 billion box office Jungle Book adaptation that Disney put out earlier this year and which is coming to DVD next Tuesday, August 30.
