Norm of the North on Blu-ray!

This winter’s coolest family comedy, Norm of the North, slides onto Digital HD March 29 and Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) April 19 from Lionsgate. Telling the ultimate tale of a loveable underdog who proves anything is possible with determination and a posse of loyal lemmings, Norm of the North features the voices of Rob Schneider (Grown Ups), Heather Graham (The Hangover franchise), Ken Jeong (The Hangover franchise), Colm Meaney (Con Air), Loretta Devine (TV’s “Grey’s Anatomy”), Gabriel Iglesias (Magic Mike), Michael McElhatton (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) and Bill Nighy (Love Actually).

Life can be a real bear—just ask Norm, a polar bear with unusual talents and a heart as big as the great outdoors. When he hears that human homes are going to be built in his Arctic backyard, Norm comes to the rescue. With a team of ragtag lemmings at his side, Norm heads to the concrete jungle of New York City on a freewheeling, fun-filled mission to stop the madness and save the Arctic.

Experience even more exhilarating adventure with special features including deleted scenes, outtakes, “The Arctic Shake” sing-along and a trivia challenge for the whole family to enjoy! The Norm of the North Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $34.99 and $29.95, respectively.

My Thoughts

Norm of the North is an adorable movie that centers around a lovable polar bear named Norm. He loves his habitat and when it's threatened by land developers, he takes a gang of of friends on an insane trip to New York to try to save their home. Along the way, they have lots of adventures and get into more than one scrape.

Though some of the animation, especially the humans, could've been better, this is still one of the cutest movies I've seen in a long time. My son is especially fond of bears, so he really loved it. The animals are endearing characters and there is humor that both kids and adults can appreciate. And not only is it a fun film, it also has a strong message about the enviroment and working to preserve animal habitats.  It's the perfect choice for family movie night.
