Gnomeo & Juliet
DVD, Blu-ray, DVD + Blu-ray 2-disc Combo Pack, and Blu-ray 3D

Shakespeare’s classic tale of star-crossed love gets a hilarious makeover set in the secret world of garden gnomes, who—like the toys in Toy Story —come to life when people aren’t looking. (Who knew those little yard statues were such fanatics for lawnmower racing?) Kids as well as grownups will enjoy the cleverness, color and campy characters in this tale of feuding lawn ornaments, orchestrated to a hip soundtrack that includes some of Elton John’s greatest hits, and featuring the all-star voices of Emily Blunt, Michael Caine, Ozzy Osborne, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart and Maggie Smith. Bonus features include making-of documentaries, alternate and deleted scenes, and a full music video for the big closing number, “Crocodile Rock,” featuring Elton John and Nelly Furtado.
