‘Horton Hears a Who’ Gets Heard on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 9th

You can hear all the Who's of Whoville on DVD and Blu-Ray this holiday season. Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 9. The film will be released in a single-disc edition ($29.98 SRP), a two-disc special edition with Digital Copy ($34.98 SRP), a Blu-Ray edition ($39.98 SRP) and a Gift Set that includes the two-disc special edition and also comes with a Horton plush ($39.98 SRP). The film stars the voices of Jim Carrey, Steve Carell, Will Arnett and Seth Rogen.

The makers of Ice Age, and comedy giants Jim Carrey and Steve Carell, bring to life Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who. An imaginative elephant named Horton (Carrey) hears a faint cry for help coming from a tiny speck of dust floating through the air. Although Horton doesn't know it yet, that speck houses an entire city named Who-ville, inhabited by the microscopic Whos, led by the Mayor (Carell). Despite being ridiculed and threatened by his neighbors who think he has lost his mind, Horton is determined to save the particle...because "a person's a person no matter how small."
