Blu-ray Review: "Prep & Landing: Totally Tinsel Collection"
on December 21, 2012
Disney spreads their holiday cheer this Christmas by releasing "Prep & Landing: Totally Tinsel Collection" on Blu-ray. You get both of these witty and hilarious adventures on one Blu-ray disc with the DVD edition accompanying it as well. If you aren't familiar with "Prep & Landing" I'd say it's time you did so. Santa's little helpers have never been so much fun.
"Prep & Landing" introduces us to Lanny and Wayne. They are part of an elite team of high-tech elves who make houses ready for Santa Claus to arrive. When things go horribly wrong, the hilarious duo must rise above their challenges in order to save Christmas.
In "Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice," Lanny and Wayne come up against a young computer hacker looking to get himself off Santa's Naughty list. Christmas could be canceled forever if the two elves don't recover the classified North Pole technology the boy has stolen.
These two mini-movies are hilarious and entertaining. People of all ages will find something redeeming in the "Prep & Landing" shows. The animation might be different than what we get with Pixar, but the spirit is there. That shouldn't come as a surprise since Pixar's John Lasseter is an executive producer of the films.
The picture and audio quality of the Blu-ray edition is wonderful. Every character and background comes to life thanks to an impressive high-definition transfer. The color palette is vibrant and the 5.1 surround disperses the musical score and sound effects throughout your home theater.
Special features consist of short films like the Emmy-winning "Operation: Secret Santa" and "Tiny's Big Adventure." "Behind the Jingle" introduces voice-actor Grace Potter, who gives us a glimpse into the studio and the making of a "Prep & Landing" mini-movie. There are North Pole commercials, North Pole News, and promotional spots. You can also get information on "Kringle Academy" if you feel ready to enroll.
"Prep & Landing: Totally Tinsel Collection" is a perfect gift for any child to unwrap under the Christmas tree. It's perfect for the whole family to enjoy as they come together to celebrate the holiday season. Two great mini-movies, short films, and plenty of fun extras make this a worthwhile purchase for any lover of Walt Disney animation or Pixar.
