On September 18, 2012, fans can experience Disney's greatest little mystery, in High Definition picture and sound, and go on a great big adventure as "The Great Mouse Detective" Mystery in the Mist Edition arrives on 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack and HD Digital. When the diabolical Professor Ratigan kidnaps London's master toymaker, the brilliant Basil of Baker Street and his trusted sidekick Dawson try to elude the ultimate trap and foil the perfect crime. This family classic on Disney Blu-ray proves big heroes come in small packages.
Inspired by the adventures of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's brilliant detective Sherlock
Holmes, The Great Mouse Detective: Mystery in the Mist Edition marks the directing
debut of now legendary filmmakers Ron Clements and John Musker, creators of such
Disney animated blockbusters as The Princess and the Frog, The Little Mermaid and
Aladdin. As Basil sniffs out one clue after another with unmatched ingenuity, kids and
adults will delight in a heartwarming and suspenseful adventure that goes from Baker
Street to the tower of Big Ben in the charmingly downsized London of Mousedom.

Accompanied by his assistant and confidante, Dr. David Q. Dawson, Basil uncovers a
villainous plot by the "slimy, contemptible sewer rat" Dr. Ratigan to replace Moustoria,
Queen of Mice, with a look-alike robot and take control of the entire rodent population of
London. Based on Eve Titus's book Basil of Baker Street, The Great Mouse Detective
channels the spirit of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous creation into a richly
animated, Sherlock Holmsian tale set in Victorian-era London's underground mouse
