A great behind-the-scenes look!
7 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been a fan of Disney's 20000 Leagues Under the Sea ever since I was a kid. When the special edition DVD came out a little more than a year ago, I immediately purchased it. The DVD comes with 2 disks: one shows the movie, and the other is the making of 20000 Leagues Under the Sea. This documentary includes information you would have never thought of, and commentary from the director and cast members. Deleted scenes are shown as they would have appeared in the final version of the film; the "sunset squid battle," for example. Pick up the special edition DVD of 20000 Leagues Under the Sea today, as you will be most impressed with the movie, and this bonus documentary.
