The Secret of the Magic Gourd (R1) in January

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of The Secret of the Magic Gourd on 27th January 2009 priced at $29.99 SRP. Disney’s first Chinese-language film, this family film is based on the Chinese children’s novel and tells the story of a boy’s coming of age using a combination of live action and CGI. In addition to the English soundtrack, the DVD also features Mandarin and Cantonese language tracks.

The Secret of the Magic Gourd is the story of Raymond, a young daydreamer whose vivid imagination has made him an outcast at school. On a solo fishing trip, Raymond reels in the mysterious Magic Gourd, who offers to make all his wishes come true. When each of Raymond’s seemingly simple wishes backfires, creating unintentionally hilarious consequences for the boy, he realizes that "there's no such thing as an unearned reward," but with a little hard work, he can create his own kind of magic and achieve his dreams.

Presented in anamorphic widescreen with DD5.1 audio (English, Mandarin and Cantonese), extras include:

  • Too Many Toys – Multi-level game
  • Featurette – Behind the scenes
  • Bloopers
