Fall in love with the magical story, enchanting characters and exquisite artistry

of “Cinderella,” complete with two all-new extras and classic bonus material

BURBANK, Calif. (May 21, 2019) — In honor of its upcoming 70th anniversary, the timeless animated classic “Cinderella” waltzes into the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection and the hearts of a whole new generation. The enchanting tale, which showed us that dreams really do come true — and inspired countless fans to reenact the Royal Ball and Cinderella’s infamous midnight dash — arrives home Digitally in HD and Movies Anywhere on June 18, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD on June 25.

The Anniversary Edition of “Cinderella” offers two all-new extras: “Cinderella” trivia and fun facts, hosted by Ruth Righi and Ava Kolker from Disney Channel’s “Sydney to the Max,” and “In Walt’s Words: Enhanced Edition,” a special edition of “Cinderella” featuring fascinating production details, original storyboards, archival photos, thumbnail sketches and transcripts throughout the feature film. Hours of classic bonus material celebrates the masterful animation, memorable music and long-lasting impact of “Cinderella,” showcasing Walt Disney’s core group of animators, the art of Disney Legend Mary Blair, the original demo recording of the film’s title song and Cinderella’s iconic glass slipper.

Recently added to the prestigious National Film Registry, the animated classic centers on kind and hardworking Cinderella, who is ordered around by her cruel stepmother, her awful stepsisters — even the big clock in the church tower tells her when to start another day of drudgery. But they can't stop her from dreaming, and Cinderella has faith that someday her wishes will come true. When an invitation to the royal ball arrives, Cinderella is sure her time has come — until her stepsisters, with the encouragement of Lady Tremaine, tear her gown to shreds. Just when Cinderella believes all is lost, her Fairy Godmother appears, and with a wave of her wand and “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” transforms an ordinary pumpkin into a magnificent coach and Cinderella’s rags into a gorgeous gown, then sends her off to the Royal Ball. But Cinderella’s enchanted evening must end when the spell is broken at midnight. It will take the help of her daring animal mice friends and a perfect fit into a glass slipper to create the ultimate fairy tale ending.

“Cinderella” is the ninth title to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection, which includes groundbreaking films created or inspired by the imagination and legacy of Walt Disney, featuring timeless stories and characters that have touched generations. The film takes its place alongside “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pinocchio,” “Bambi,” “The Lion King,” “Lady and the Tramp,” “Peter Pan” and “The Little Mermaid.”

From one of the country’s foremost doctors and now New York Times bestselling author comes a step-by-step plan for diagnosing, treating and healing Lyme and other chronic diseases.

HOW CAN I GET BETTER?

An Action Plan for Treating Resistant Lyme and Chronic Disease

Dr. Richard Horowitz

Since its release in the fall of 2013, Dr. Horowitz's groundbreaking text on Lyme and chronic disease Why Can’t I Get Better? has been an extraordinary success, selling close to 50,000 copies across formats to date with a media platform that is increasing every day. Now, in HOW CAN I GET BETTER?:  An Action Plan for Treating Resistant Lyme and Chronic Disease (SMP OS February 14, 2017), a new handbook, he provides what everyone suffering desperately needs: a direct, actionable step by step plan for implementing his 16-point MSIDS Diagnostic Map in the treatment of Lyme and Chronic Disease, along with the research updates that guide his treatment and new stories pulled from his practice that show how healing is possible.

The ongoing debate over Lyme disease as a chronic illness has made it difficult for patients to find appropriate care, as they are often misdiagnosed with such diseases as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, an auto-immune disorder, or even a psychiatric condition. Meanwhile, answers are elusive and doctors knowledgeable in treating remain few. At the same time, the number of cases is growing astoundingly each year, reaching epidemic proportions. Specific and accessible, HOW CAN I GET BETTER? is an all-in-one source to guide doctors and patients alike in  identifying  symptoms and working together for the best possible treatment outcome.

RICHARD I. HOROWITZ is a board-certified MD specializing in Internal Medicine. He and his wife, Lee, founded the Hudson Valley Healing Arts Center in Hyde Park, New York, which has treated over 12,000 patients for tick-borne diseases over the past twenty-six years. Dr. Horowitz is known for his pioneering work with Lyme disease and is recognized to be one of the country’s foremost experts on chronic illness.

He’d Always Wanted this Pet and that Pet, and…

Peterson Amy Cover


Humorous memoir chronicles one household’s unpredictable cornucopia of creatures and offers indispensable advice on raising, spoiling, and loving them
For certain individuals in the world, having their own personal menagerie to spoil and love constitutes paradise. Amy L. Peterson’s biologist husband is one of those people.
In her engaging new memoir Something Furry Underfoot, Peterson tells how, upon marrying her husband Mark, she unwittingly opened the door and ultimately her heart to the unpredictable cacophany of creatures that Mark had "always wanted."
Take the African pygmy hedgehog, for example. Charmed by the prickly creature, Peterson, a softy at heart, wanted it to have a pal so it wouldn’t get lonely. Along came Louie, who upon escaping from his cage for flings with Sonic, presented the stunned Petersons with several unplanned litters of baby hedgehogs.
Four mischievous ferrets came next. These were soon joined by a variety of mice, gerbils, and hamsters. A white frou-frou puppy named Dusty and then another beloved pup, Little Dipper, followed. Somewhere along the way, the Petersons also acquired a duck, frogs, fish, rabbits, kittens, birds, and sundry other creatures.
Besides chronicling the ups and downs of caring for all these animals, Something Furry Underfoot also contains fifty sage tips for pet owners, making the book more than just an entertaining read; it’s also a how-to book full of helpful advice learned the hard way.
Tips include the following gems: Tip #9: Breeding pets to make money doesn’t always work out so well. Tip #14: A devilish ferret may not look devilish upon first inspection. Tip #28: It is important (although not easy) to know a boy gerbil from a girl gerbil.
Peterson comments, "When I started writing this book, I set out to document the variety of pets my husband brought into my life and how unique each was: each hamster in a litter of hamsters has a different personality; even two mynah birds that look identical have different personalities. As I wrote, I realized that not only was each and every pet different, they all had different needs and wants. That led me to the book's overall message: that every pet has a story, and our role as owners is to make that story as good as possible."
In telling the stories of her pets, Peterson tells her own, revealing how her heart has expanded and her marriage has endured the countless surprises, challenges, and expenses presented by the endless stream of furred and feathered creatures that first entered and then altered her life.
The only question is, what’s next?
"Want to know what it’s like living with a houseful of pets while still holding onto your sanity? Then you’ve got to read Something Furry Underfoot, Amy Peterson’s warm and funny book about her experiences coping with and caring for all manner of animals. Not only will you get a lot of laughs but you’ll also pick up some valuable tips about co-existing with your own critters!"Bob Tarte, author of Enslaved by Ducks, Kitty Cornered, and Fowl Weather
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Something Furry Underfoot will be donated to animal rescue organizations. visit www.amylpeterson.com.
Author: When Amy married Mark in 1994, she became a stepmother to four children ages three, five, thirteen, and fifteen. Unable to find uplifting self-help books about step-parenting, Amy documented her own humorous and stressful experience in From Zero to Four Kids in Thirty Seconds. Their kids now grown, Amy works for the state of Michigan and lives with Mark and numerous critters. When not working or caring for animals, Amy tends to get in trouble while traveling, the details of which may be the basis for her next book.
