Conclusion: This is a fun but familiar movie from Disney that offers a lot of great songs from the Sherman Brothers which makes it a lot better than it has a right to be. The cast, led by Phil Harris and Eva Gabor does a great job in their roles. This Blu-ray offers some strong video quality and fantastic audio which is offset by the somewhat weak extras. This movie looks and sounds a lot better than it did on DVD so I highly recommend it to the fans of the movie.
Conclusion: I enjoy 'The Aristocats' more for its style of animation than for its story. Its villain and plot are pretty ho-hum and nothing really memorable happens (besides the trippy color-changing musical number). It's never been considered amongst the cream of the crop when it comes to Disney animated titles. Yet, Disney has provided a faithful video presentation that has been coupled with a well-put-together audio presentation. Fans will no doubt be excited with the outcome.
Conclusion: The last animated film to be granted the late Walt Disney's blessing, The Aristocats is a non-traditional Disney classic; it isn't necessarily an essential animated feature but its relative obscurity should sadden anyone who's had the pleasure of dancing, tapping and singing their way across Paris with Duchess and her kittens. Disney's restoration and Blu-ray release isn't the real treat it could be, though, with a problematic video presentation that isn't up to snuff.
