**Woody Woodpecker On DVD & Digital 2/6**

I grew up watching the animated version of Woody Woodpecker. So when Universal Home Entertainment so graciously offered to let my family and I review a copy before release I was super excited. This movie was such a different spin on the original version I was used to and I think it added to the excitement my kids felt before it even started.
 I do have a child that is on the spectrum and movies can be hit or miss, but this movie was a HIT. He found all the farts and bodily functions very entertaining. It was a very kid friendly movie and I found no scenes to exceed the younger child viewing capable.

Woody is a mischievous bird and tended to get himself into some pretty difficult situations but it was  easy to follow. 

Chaos ensues in the all-new family comedy, Woody Woodpecker, coming to DVD, Digital and On Demand on February 6, 2018, from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The film blends live action and CGI animation to tell the crazy and humorous story of an all-out turf war between the mischievous prankster and a big city lawyer who wants to build his dream home in Woody’s backyard. 

Directed by Alex Zamm (Inspector Gadget 2The Little Rascals Save the Day), Woody Woodpecker stars Timothy Omundson (“Psych”), Thaila Ayala (“Rio Heat”), Graham Verchere (“Fargo”) Jordana Largy (Monster Trucks) and Eric Bauza (The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water), as the voice of Woody. The Woody Woodpecker  DVD and digital features deleted scenes and an exclusive inside look at the making of the film as well as the evolution of Woody’s iconic cartoon character.

Woody Woodpecker is back with his signature laugh, wacky antics and wisecracks in his first ever live-action/animated film. Woody must protect his forest home from Lance Walters (Omundson), who starts building his dream mansion in the forest with his son, Tommy (Verchere), and fiancĂ©e, Vanessa (Ayala). To make matters worse, Woody must avoid the clutches of two grizzly poachers. With a series of crazy hijinks to sabotage their plans, Woody proves he’ll stop at nothing to defend his turf. Get ready for laughs in this hilarious comedy about everyone’s favorite woodpecker!

Woody Woodpecker is a legendary icon created by Walter Lantz in 1940. Woody Woodpecker & Friendshave entertained kids for more than 75 years! Woody Woodpecker cartoons appeared in theaters until they debuted on television in 1957. Woody’s popularity resulted in new shows airing across several decades. “The Woody Woodpecker Show” has been broadcast in over 155 territories and 105 languages worldwide. He is one of the most memorable cartoon characters in animation history, featuring the little red –headed bird with the unforgettable laugh, who’s forever pecking his way out of trouble. Woody has evolved from a cartoon TV character to a Pop Culture Icon with his fearlessness, crazy antics and smarts.

  • Guess Who? The Evolution of Woody – Woody Woodpecker is one of the world’s most iconic animated characters. In this featurette, we explore how Woody’s look and personality have changed since his introduction in 1940.

**Despicable Me 3** Gift Guide Ideas 2017

Illumination, who brought moviegoers Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, and the biggest animated hit of 2015, Minions, continues the story of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3. After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Balthazar Bratt, the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother—a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin's despicable footsteps—one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.

I had the opportunity to review a copy in Blu-Ray with my family, thanks to Universal Home Entertainment. My kids have grown with the minions just like other families and they await the next journey in the minion mayhem. As with all the other Illumination films it was funny, wacky and keeps you on the edge of your seat from all the action. My kids do not have any one favorite character because as with the other movies the bad guy makes you feel bad by the end of the movie and you wait for him/her to become good. This is the perfect Christmas break movie and should always be considered as a perfect stocking stuff-er.
Because this is part of a gift guide I received a Holiday Kit, some extras to share with my family and friends.
