My Girl 2 comes from Columbia TriStar

Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment is preparing a new DVD of the bittersweet sequel My Girl 2. That’s the good news. The bad news is the fullscreen only presentation.

The year is 1974. Vada is now 13 years old, and living with her father and pregnant stepmother. When one of her teachers gives an assignment to write about the life and achievements of someone she’s never met, Vada chooses her late mother as the subject. Her research soon leads her to Los Angeles, where she stays with Uncle Phil, his likeable girlfriend, and her streetsmart son, Nick. Guided by Nick through the city of Los Angeles in search of clues to her mother’s history, Vada makes some surprising discoveries about her roots and also about herself as she confronts the uncertainties of adolescence – first love, first kiss, and her place in a changing family.

Although this film will be welcome by many on DVD, the disc will contain absolutely no features and will be presented in fullscreen only. Columbia TriStar who used to be a champion of aspect ratios has begun releasing featureless fullscreen discs. Let’s hope this isn’t a trend.

Priced at $19.95, the disc will be released on December 3rd.
