G-FORCE
A Must-Own Blu-ray Combo Pack out on December 15! 
This Coming Holiday Season, Families Can Look Forward To Watching Their Favorite Pack of Guinea Pigs Anytime, Anywhere & On the Format Of Their Choice


Burbank, Calif., September 25, 2009 – Charging home on December 15th comes Walt Disney Pictures’ action-packed comedy-adventure G-Force.  Packaged as an exciting Disney “Combo Pack” (a Blu-ray™ + DVD +DisneyFile Digital Copy of the movie in a single package), families can finally look forward to enjoying this thrilling story about a covert group of feisty furball Guinea Pigs anytime, anywhere and on a compatible format of their choice --Blu-ray player, car, PC and/or portable device. 

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (National TreasurePirates of the Caribbean), G-Force takes audiences on a deliriously entertaining thrill ride with a whole new breed of hero, featuring a stellar cast including Nicolas Cage (National Treasure), Sam Rockwell (Moon), Jon Favreau (I Love You, Man), Penelope Cruz (Vicky Christina Barcelona), Tracy Morgan (“30 Rock”), and Steve Buscemi (Charlotte’s Web), with live performances by Bill Nighy (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End), Will Arnett (Ratatouille) and Zak Galifianakis (The Hangover).  Academy Award®-winning visual effects master Hoyt H. Yeatman, Jr. (1989 winner for Best Effects; Visual Effects, The Abyss) makes his directing debut.

Destined to be the family comedy hit of the season, and released just in time for the holidays, G-Force includes a fascinating line-up of behind-the-scenes features, hilarious deleted movie scenes and a collection of music videos featuring songs from the film.  And exclusively for Blu-ray owners, there are three CGI effect bonus features that will satisfy their quest to join the rodent spy world.

·  Blasters Boot Camp—Blaster (Tracy Morgan) gives viewers a high-energy, high-tech orientation into the elite world of the G-Force.

A top-secret, highly trained trio of guinea pig super spies is assigned to stop a dastardly plot to take over the world in G-Force, a gorgeously rendered CGI adventure from famed producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Squad leader Darwin (voiced by Sam Rockwell) will do what it takes to guarantee the success of his team, which also includes Blaster (Tracy Morgan), an outrageous weapons expert with tons of attitude, and Juarez (Penelope Cruz), gorgeous martial arts pro. With the help of Speckles (Nicolas Cage), a star-nosed mole, and myriad other members of the animal kingdom, the G-Force tries to derail evil appliance mogul Leonard Saber’s power grab. It helps when your fly-on-the wall reconnaissance expert is, well, a fly on the wall! 


G-Force has a suggested retail price of $44.99 (US) and $51.99 (Canada) for the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, $39.99 (US) and $44.99 (Canada) for the 2-Disc DVD with a DisneyFile Digital Copy of the movie, and $29.99 (US) and $35.99 (Canada) for the 1-Disc DVD.
