On November 2nd families everywhere can experience “fantasmagorical” adventures, legendary sing-alongs and magical moments like never before as MGM Home Entertainment releases an all-new remastered version of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang on Blu-ray. Enjoy the fun of this family classic for the first time on Blu-ray disc with upgraded 7.1 DTS-HD master audio and new interactive games. An original version of the film on DVD will accompany the all-new remastered Blu-ray.

Based on the children’s book Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: The Magical Car by Ian Fleming, the film tells the story of an eccentric professor (played by Dick Van Dyke) who invents wacky machinery, but can't seem to make ends meet. When he invents a revolutionary car, a foreign government becomes interested in it, and resorts to skullduggery to get their hands on it. The all-time family classic evolves from there and viewers are taken on a magical ride with the professor and loveable motorcar.

As part of “the most fantasmagorical musical entertainment in the history of everything!” the remastered version of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang on Blu-ray will feature special interactive features for families everywhere to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes, including an all-new “Toot Sweet Symphony” melody maker and “Chitty Chitty’s Bang Bang Driving Game!” Other special features include “Remembering Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” with Dick Van Dyke, song demos from the Sherman Brothers and a featurette entitled "A Fantasmagorical Motorcar."

The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will be available in a Blu-Ray case in the Blu-ray section of local retailers, and the DVD/Blu-ray combo pack will be in a standard amaray DVD case in the DVD section of local retailers.
