Diamonds are a girl’s best friend; dog is man’s best friend. Now that Disney’s 101 Dalmatians Diamond Edition is being released this week, we don’t have to choose! The family classic featuring our favorite spotted pups – all of them! – and Cruella DeVil, the woman we love to hate, can now be shared with generations of Disney lovers starting Tuesday, February 10, 2014.
The New 101 Dalmatians Diamond Edition – What’s New?
Disney has taken the classic 101 Dalmatians and upgraded it to awesome! There is still the classic look of original, ground-breaking animation, but it’s now with that ‘pop’ and quality of 1080p video presentation.
The picture is no longer grainy, but the improvements still maintained the animators original vision of overcast skies and darker hues of the exterior and the warm colors of the Radcliffe residence. No worries – the Diamond Edition of 101 Dalmatians updates the look of the film without losing the classic feel of the story.

If you’re enjoying 101 Dalmatians for the first time, or if you’re watching with your kids who are seeing it for the first time, you’ll see why this lovable gang of pups became such a classic favorite for Disney.
Pongo, Perdita and their super-adorable puppies star in an epic action-packed adventure and prove to be quite a challenge for Cruella De Vil, Disney’s most fabulously outrageous villainess. Cruella’s plan is to dognap all of the Dalmatian puppies in London to make a coat from their fur (scarier than it sounds – spoiler alert: she does not succeed), a group of pups and their friends launch a daring plan to save all puppies from Cruella’s clutches!
