Walt Disney World Studios Releases “Secretariat” on Blu-ray/DVD: Giveaway

On Friday night, we like to have family movie night. We usually let the kids choose a movie while I make some popcorn before we snuggle on the couch. To be honest, it can be hard to find a movie that everyone is interested in watching and is family friendly. I have heard a lot about the movie Secretariat but did not see it in the theater. Since Disney never disappoints, we decided to give it a try this weekend. About the movie:

Disney presents an astonishing true story bursting with hope, heart and courage. Diane Lane and John Malkovich lead a celebrated cast in this inspirational motion picture from the producers of Miracle, Invincible and The Rookie.

Behind every legend, lies an impossible dream. Witness the spectacular journey of an incredible horse named Secretariat and the moving story of his unlikely owner, a housewife who risked everything to make him a champion. Out of the gate with never-before-seen bonus features, Secretariat is hours of pulse- pounding entertainment for the whole family!

Because I do not keep up with horse racing, I was unsure what to expect from this movie.  But, it was so much more than a simple story about a horse.  It was truly inspirational and all of our eyes were glued to the screen at the end.  I don’t want to give away too much about the movie, so check out the trailer below.

SECRETARIAT will be available in stores nationwide on January 25, 2011.  The 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD in a single package) will be sold for the suggested price of $39.99 U.S./$44.99 Canada and a 1- Disc DVD for the suggested price of $29.99 U.S./$35.99 Canada.  But, I found it for $23.99 on Amazon.com!

  1. I would love to win this movie because I love horses, and I remember watching Secretariat win the Triple Crown when I was a little girl.
