Anne of Green Gables: Four-Part Restoration DVD Set
Includes all four Anne of Green Gables feature films: Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea, Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story, and Anne of Green Gables: A New Beginning in Widescreen picture format.
The Restoration Process:
While filming 2008's Anne of Green Gables: A New Beginning, Kevin Sullivan realized that all of the Anne of Green Gables titles would benefit from the new digital technology being used on the production. A team of film experts have painstakingly transferred the original film footage of the first three movies, and has repaired each scratched or damaged frame, addressed color degradation issues, and negative sparkle and dirt. Their hard work has paid off: the resulting widescreen digital transfers are simply breathtaking.

Every disc played without any problems. They all had great color, picture quality and sound. I would recommend this set to anyone who loves Anne of Greene Gables.
I ordered for my daughter in law’s birthday. Everything came quickly and carefully packaged. I will surely order again.
Bought for my granddaughter who celebrated moving to from 5th Grade to Middle School. All I can say she called me very happy. That said her happiness was all I needed.
I purchased this for my 78-year old mom. We both loved the stories of Anne's dramas when it was on PBS. Being able to give her this complete set of DVDs, in excellent condition was a joy. She is now able to watch it any time and often.
This collection arrived in good time. Both picture and sound qualities are spot on. I also love having the closed captioning anvail. We are huge fans of this classic Anne of Green Gables and of the Avonlea series. We happily own all and will enjoy watching these over and over again through the years with the grandkids.
