VIDEO – 4½/5, AUDIO – 4¼/5

Presented in the original 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio, this 1080p CGI-animated movie unsurprisingly looks quite good. Detail is well defined and colors of course are bright and vibrant, in keeping with the light-hearted story and characters.

The disc includes a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track which is perfectly adequate for the material. Dialogue comes across with clarity and the music/score makes the most out of the front and rear channels. Nothing incredible or noteworthy but satisfactory for a movie like this.
