Posted by Lisa on

Return to the days that sparked the American Revolution, now on Disney DVD for the first time! Meet young Johnny Tremain, a silversmith’s apprentice with dreams of learning the trade and making his own way. When a terrible injury ends his hopes, he joins the emerging Sons Of Liberty. The Redcoats are coming as you journey back to the Boston Tea Party, the midnight ride of Paul Revere, and Lexington Green, where tyranny was vanquished by an idea — freedom for all! Based on the classic novel by Esther Forbes, you won’t want to miss one historic moment of Disney’s classic adventure and liberty’s rising light.|The film was originally meant as programming for the Disney television series, but when production costs mounted, Walt Disney decided to release it as a feature film. The film is based on the 1943 novel by Esther Forbes, who won a Pulitzer Prize that year for her book “Paul Revere And The World He Lived In.” “Johnny Tremain” won a prestigious Newbery Medal the following year.
