Join Dizzy, Bop and the rest of the swinging band on their jamming journey in THE GREAT MUSIC CAPER arriving on DVD January 27 from Genius Products and The Weinstein Company. Featuring the voices of singer/actress Joanna 'JoJo' Levesque, rapper/actor Bow Wow and actor/comedian Cheech Marin, THE GREAT MUSIC CAPER is a musically engaging CGI symphony of fun the whole family can tune into.
When a melodious orchestra of beautiful instruments is divided into sections over the theft of the musical keys, Dizzy and Bop form an unlikely duo to uncover the truth. After discovering the keys were actually stolen by a villainous doctor looking to build his own instrument of cacophonous discord, all of the instruments -- woodwinds, brass, strings and percussion -- must once again band together to regain possession of the keys if the orchestra is to ever have an encore.

Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews) takes Jane and Michael Banks (Karen Dotrice and Matthew Garber) on magical, musical outings including a play date with adorable animated penguins, a race through the country side on merry-go-round horses and a trip across the rooftops of London on a stairway made of smoke -- and always gets them home in time for dinner!
