UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Discover the true meaning of the holiday season when the live-action adaptation of the beloved yuletide classic Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas comes to Blu-ray and Digital HD in a newly remastered Grinchmas Edition from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment on October 13, 2015. The film marks its 15th Anniversary with improved HD picture and sound as well as extensive bonus features that reveal the behind-the-scenes secrets that have made it a perennial family favorite.

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas stars Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty, Liar Liar), Molly Shannon ("Saturday Night Live," "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp"), Christine Baranski ("The Good Wife," Mamma Mia!), Jeffrey Tambor ("Arrested Development," "Transparent") and Taylor Momsen ("Gossip Girl"). Academy Award®-winning director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13), Academy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13) and the acclaimed screenwriting team of Jeffrey Price and Peter S. Seaman (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Shrek the Third) reimagine one of the most enduring holiday stories of all time. 

Why is The Grinch (Carrey) such a grouch? No one seems to know, until little Cindy Lou Who (Momsen) takes matters into her own hands and turns both Whoville and The Grinch's world upside down, inside out ... and funny side up. Filled with dazzling scenery, special effects, makeup and costumes, this is an adventure "that can make your heart grow three sizes—if you're not laughing too hard!" (Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution).
