THE SECRET OF MOONACRE upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release

On Tuesday, September 21, 2010, THE SECRET OF MOONACRE, makes its way from the big screen to DVD and Blu-ray formats, debuting at retailers nationwide and brought to you by eOne Entertainment.

MOONACRE, which is based on the beloved, Carnegie Medal-winning children’s novel, The Little White Horse, by Elizabeth Goudge, is a family film, perfect for ages 8 and up.

It was White Horse that served as central inspiration for J.K. Rowling and her enormously successful creation of the Harry Potter novels.

Emmy Award-winning director, Gabor Csupo (Bridge to Terabithia, creator of “Rugrats” and “The Wild Thornberrys”) brings the THE SECRET OF MOONACRE, to life.

Rated PG for “some mild peril and language,” this fantasy/fairytale/adventure is filled with exquisite imagery, special effects, moments of high drama, comic relief and a fine performance by Dakota Blue Richards (The Golden Compass) who plays the central role of 13-year-old, “Maria Merryweather.”

Set in the 1840’s, the recently orphaned Maria leaves her elegant London home, forced to live at the mysterious Moonacre Manor estate with an eccentric uncle she never knew. Immersed in a dark and crumbling world filled with secrets, Maria discovers she is the last “Moon Princess” charged with undoing ancestral misdeeds before the next full moon, or Moonacre disappears forever.

The DVD version of MOONACRE is presented in 16x9 anamorphic widescreen (2.35:1) and 5.1 Surround Sound; the Blu-ray format, offers DTS-HD Master Audio. Both releases include English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired, and in addition to the 103-minute film, an extra 90 minutes of bonus features are included at a suggested retail price of $24.98.
