Fox Home Entertainment Insiders Blogger of the MonthSongwriters Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II created some of the most iconic musicals in history, and on May 6, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release The Rodgers & Hammerstein Blu-ray Collection as an Amazon Exclusive. The set includes THE SOUND OF MUSIC, OKLAHOMA!, THE KING AND I, SOUTH PACIFIC, STATE FAIR and CAROUSEL. Being a musical household, I'm looking forward to experiencing these again with my girls. Actually, these seems like a good time to share the video of my daughter Addie (then, just 2 1/2) singing "Do A Deer (Do Re Mi)" from THE SOUND OF MUSIC while in the hospital awaiting the arrival of her baby sister back in 2012...

I always say this, but it's interesting delving into cinematic worlds as a parent that I haven't entered since being a child myself. Disney's THE JUNGLE BOOK is one of those worlds, a film released countless times over, yet somehow escaping my purchase (unlike certain films that I've owned multiple times on whatever the latest format). Oddly enough, THE JUNGLE BOOK is one film that always should've been in my collection, if only for it's musical pedigree. In fact, it's the swingin' soundtrack that really propels the film, with several songs by the Sherman Brothers (MARY POPPINS, WINNIE THE POOH), and the iconic, Louis Prima-sung "I Wan'na Be Like You (The Monkey Song)" becoming an oft-covered standard (I love the BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY version). That aside, there's a classic Rudyard Kipling story at it's heart, and experiencing THE JUNGLE BOOK again for the first time in probably 25-30 years - but this time with my girls - was a treat.

This past November, I took my oldest to check out a screening of FREE BIRDS as part of a promotion that I was doing with Chuck E. Cheese's.

The folks at 20th Century Fox have officially announced the Blu-ray and DVD release of FREE BIRDS for February 4, 2014.
