Yogi Bear Blu-ray
By Gareth and Amara
The world’s most famous picnic basket-stealing bear has returned from a cartoon hibernation to star in his own animated full-length 3-D film which has arrived on DVD, Blu-ray, and 3D Blu-ray from warner Bros Home entertainment.
The film stars (Dan Aykroyd) as Yogi who along with his cohort Boo-Boo (Justin Timberlake), live in the gorgeous Jellystone National Park. Yogi is always are on the lookout for a picnic basket to loot from the ever present tourist population.
Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh) is constantly at odds with Yogi and looks to end his days of pilfering picnic baskets as it is making him look bad to his fellow rangers.
Even with such a dynamic cast of actors who all do a decent job, the film is hindered by the plot which is full of ridiculous justifications for Yogi and Boo-Boo’s human characteristics, a question that is hinted at and never directly answered.
Mind you, this is a film intended for kids and for the family audience and as such the use of big 3-D visuals and vivid colors is likely to keep young children amused, particularly in the form of the film’s adorable frog-mouthed turtle. But for parents looking to share the Yogi Bear of their youth, the film remake will prove to be a less than an acceptable substitute for the original television show.
That being said, the release is an ideal addition to any family collection as younger viewers who were not raised on the show are likely to love it.
The Blu-ray release offers amazing visuals and sound and is packed with bonus features such as.
