DVD Releases For September 9, 2008
The exciting racing duo, Tortoise and Hare, return again for another match in the upcoming release of The Jim Henson Company animation, UNSTABLE FABLES: TORTOISE VS. HARE. Brought to you by Genius Products and The Weinstein Company, this revamped children's classic will be debuting on DVD September 9.
Once again, the highly respected Jim Henson Company, Prana Animation Studios and Flame Ventures, bring together the third CGI animated film in the charming UNSTABLE FABLES collection.
Clever and quick-witted, UNSTABLE FABLES: TORTOISE VS. HARE boasts edgy humor that appeals to adults and children alike. It's been 15 years since the illustrious race between Walter the Tortoise (Danny Glover) and Murray the Hare (Jay Leno) but the passing of time hasn't tempered their bitter rivalry.
When they hear about the upcoming Mt. Impossible Nature Adventure Race, they can't resist the opportunity to challenge each other to a rematch. This time they enlist their children to be their teammates, but the kids don't share their parents' competitive nature. When Walter and Murray get separated from their kids, the two dads must team up to find them and learn there are far more important matters than winning a race.
Special Features Include:
--The Voices Of TORTOISE VS. HARE
--How To Draw A Character With Director Howard E. Baker
