For the first time “Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure” is coming out on Blu-Ray. This is the continuation of the classic Lady and the Tramp with their pup Scamp always causing trouble. Little Scamp yearns to have freedom and not live tied up in the backyard. He one days seeks out adventure and takes to the streets to find out what life is all about.
There are many popular actors and actresses as the voice talent in this new breed of Disney animation. Scott Wolf as Scamp (TV’s “Party of Five”), Alyssa Milano as Angel (TV’s “Who’s The Boss?”), Chazz Palminteri as Buster (“A Bronx Tale”), Jeff Bennett as Tramp (“Jake and the Neverland Pirates”), Bill Fagerbakke as Mooch (“SpongeBob SquarePants”), Mickey Rooney as Sparky (“Night At The Museum”), Bronson Pinchot as Francois (TV’s Perfect Strangers”), Cathy Moriarty as Ruby, (“Raging Bull”) and Disney Legend Jodi Benson as Lady(“The Little Mermaid”). Jodi Benson did an impressive job as the voice of Lady. She had the right accent and flections in her voice to replicate the original voice by Barbara Luddy.
Bonus features include Puppy Trivia Tracks that has fun trivia questions, facts and notes about dogs and Disney movies that pop up during the movie for added info. A Sing Along Songs video pack with all the great tunes from the movie with lyrics that you can sing along with. Three classic Pluto cartoon shorts that are really funny and remind me of those cartoons they used to play on the Disney Channel back in the day. Lastly, the Making of Lady and the Tramp II feature. I really enjoyed watching the behind the scenes look on how they created the original Lady and the Tramp to influence how they made Lady and the Tramp II. I loved the clips from the original animators talking about the characters and storylines.
“Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure” releases on August 21, 2012 and retails for $39.99 for the 2-Disc Blu-Ray Combo Pack.
