BURBANK, Calif., June 9, 2003 – Walt Disney Home Entertainment presents, in association with Walden Media, Disney’s HOLES, the $62M box office hit, on Disney DVD and VHS on September 23. A fun, stirring adventure and poignant family film, HOLES is based on the best-selling, Newberry award-winning book by Louis Sachar. Directed by Andrew Davis, from a screenplay by Louis Sachar. Produced by Mike Medavoy, Andrew Davis, Teresa Tucker-Davies and Lowell Blank. Executive produced by Marty Ewing and Louis Phillips.
On Disney DVD, HOLES will include a gag reel, deleted scenes, cast and filmmaker commentaries, music video, special “behind-the-scenes” features and more. HOLES is available on DVD for $29.99 (S.R.P.) and on VHS for $22.99 (S.R.P.).
Stanley Yelnats (Shia LaBeouf, Disney Channel’s “Even Stevens”) is an unusual young hero dogged by bad luck stemming from an ancient family curse. Stanley has little clue that he’s in for the adventure of his life when sent to Camp Green Lake, where he and his campmates - Squid, Armpit, ZigZag, Magnet, X-Ray, and Zero – are mysteriously forced by the camp’s director, known only as “The Warden” (Sigourney Weaver, “Tadpole,” “Galaxy Quest”), and her right-hand men Mr. Sir (Jon Voight, “Ali,” “Midnight Cowboy”) and Dr. Pendanski (Tim Blake Nelson, “O Brother Where Art Thou”), to dig holes in order “to build character.” Through it all, Stanley and his campmates must stick together as they attempt to discover what’s really hidden in the desert.
Already hailed as a classic, Louis Sachar’s novel Holes has been published in nearly 30 countries spanning North and South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and has received over 25 accolades, most notably the 1999 Newbery Medal for Best Children’s and Young Adult Fiction, the Boston Globe Horn Book Award, and the 1998 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature. In a recent poll by Read magazine of the most popular books among children, Holes ranked #1 – beating even Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
