Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (US BD) in November

MGM Home Entertainment have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang on 2nd November 2010. This family classic has been remastered for its Blu-ray Disc release and boasts upgraded 7.1 DTS-HD master audio and new interactive games. An original version of the film on DVD will accompany the all-new remastered Blu-ray.

Based on the children’s book Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: The Magical Car by Ian Fleming, the film tells the story of an eccentric professor (played by Dick Van Dyke) who invents wacky machinery, but can't seem to make ends meet. When he invents a revolutionary car, a foreign government becomes interested in it, and resorts to skullduggery to get their hands on it. The all-time family classic evolves from there and viewers are taken on a magical ride with the professor and loveable motorcar.
