This July, Columbia TriStar Home Video will be presenting Frank Oz’s wonderful childrens tale, The Indian in the Cupboard.
Based on Lynne Reid Banks’ classic children’s book of the same name, “The Indian in the Cupboard” tells the touching tale of nine-year-old Omri. Onri receuves many presents for his birthday, but one seems out of place; an old medicine cabinet. While the medicine cabinet doesn’t seem to be the best birthday present, Omri discovers its true magic when he leaves one of his other presents, a small plastic indian figure in the cabinet overnight. When he wakes up the next morning, he discovers the Indian has come alive! While the boy is delighted by this discovery, the Indian Little Bear, finds the situation much more frightening – suddenly finding himself in the world of a giant. As the two become friends, Omri and Little Bear have fantastic adventires, but they also learn a great deal about life and loyalty.
“The Indian in the Cupboard” will come with a new anamorphic widescreen and a fullscreen transfer to compliment its Dolby 2-Channel soundtrack. The disc will also feature an audio commentary from director Frank Oz, a photo gallery, and filmographies.
Coming July 3rd, “The Indian in the Cupboard” is a wonderful family film, and will be available for $24.95.
