Winnie the Pooh is in for a rude (or perhaps pleasant) awakening when he discovers his pre-order is actually for a double dose of dance flicks on Blu-ray this February.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal will be bringing 'Honey' and its sequel 'Honey 2' to Blu-ray on February 21.
Honey Daniels (Jessica Alba) is a struggling hip-hop dancer who's got all the moves, talent and relentless passion to succeed. She's been waiting all her life to show the world her dance moves and now her dream is just a step away. Inspired by the energy and music of the streets, she risks her shot at the big time to reach out, take a chance and make it on her own terms. Pulse-pounding music and awesome dance moves ignite this exhilarating story of passion, determination and finding the courage to follow your dreams. Also starring Mekhi Phifer and featuring hip-hop sensations Missy Elliott and Lil' Romeo.
From the director of 'Honey' comes 'Honey 2.' The legacy of legendary dancer and choreographer Honey Daniels lives on in spirited 17-year-old Maria Bennett (Katerina Graham). When Maria returns to her gritty Bronx roots to pursue her dreams of dancing, her killer moves attract the attention of Brandon (Randy Wayne), who urges her to help lead a rowdy group of rising dancers to win a fierce national competition. Maria’s in for an unforgettable showdown in this inspiring story of courage, dedication and the will to never give up. Also starring Mario Lopez and Audrina Patridge, 'Honey 2' features moves from some of America’s top dance crews, including Quest Crew, Beat Freaks, Strikers All-Stars, Super Cr3w, Fanny Pak and more!
Each release will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and the only supplements seem to be My Scenes.
Suggested list price for the Blu-rays is still undetermined at this time.
