Bedknobs and Broomsticks was planned for a November 7, 2000 release on VHS and DVD in early 2000 as a Gold Classic Collection title, but instead, it was released as a 30th Anniversary Edition on March 20, 2001.


An Academy Award winner for Best Visual Effects, Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a magical blend of live action and animation that makes it one of Disney's most enduring classics.
