Directors: Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson, Hamilton Luske (Bronson, Pusher)
WATCH: Walt Disney's daughter talks Lady and the Tramp

Available for the first time on Blu-ray, the Diamond Edition is packed with bonus features, making-of featurettes and a movie mini-doc called Remembering Dad.

A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas
Starring: Kal Penn, John Cho, Neil Patrick Harris, Danny Trejo
Director: Todd Strauss-Schulson
WATCH: Penn and Cho on bromance and being together again and an EXCLUSIVE clip from the movie
Story: Your favourite stoners have drifted apart since their last pot-fueled misadventure and it takes a holiday miracle to get them together again. Or shooting Santa Claus and burning down Harold's Christmas-loving father-in-law's majestic tree and banding together to right all their wrongs. A silly, R-rated romp that won't disappoint fans of the franchise. Oh and there's even more NPH.

Starring: Rhys Ifans, Vanessa Redgrave, Rafe Spall
Director:Roland Emmerich (2012, Independence Day)
Story: Ruffling quite a few feathers, Anonymous gives weight to the unpopular theory that Shakespeare's plays were really written by Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford, and this theatrical costume drama adds politics to the mix, set against the backdrop of the succession of Queen Elizabeth I, and the Essex Rebellion against her. An unlikely subject for the man who brought you The Day After Tomorrow and Godzilla.
