TurboDreamWorks Animation’s Turbo is another little guy makes big story.

The movie tells the story of a common garden snail called Turbo (voiced by Ryan Reynolds, Green Lantern) who dreams of winning the Indy 500. When a freak accident gives him super sonic speed, he just might get his wish.

The PG film also features the voices of Paul Giamatti (Win Win), Michael Pena (End of Watch), Samuel L. Jackson (Marvel’s The Avengers), Luis Guzman (The Count of Monte Cristo), Bill Hader (Men in Black 3), Maya Rudolph (The Way, Way Back), Richard Jenkins (Eat Pray Love), Michelle Rodriguez (Avatar), Ken Jeong (Pain & Gain), Snoop Dog and even real-life racer Mario Andretti.

Turbo got decent reviews when it was in theaters, with Minneapolis Star Tribune critic Colin Covert says the movie “isn’t a perfect cartoon, but it’s so likable that, like its humble hero, you have to root for it.”

The film grossed $81 million at the box office.

All the disc versions come with special features. On the DVD:

  • “Champions Corner” with host Paul Page interviewing Turbo about his racing techniques and inspirations
  • “Be An Artist!” with the film’s head of character animation, Dave Burgess, showing how to draw garden Turbo and racing Turbo
  • “Team Turbo: Tricked Out” with Turbo and the rest of the snail crew in a breakdown of the components that makeup each of the shells
  • “World of DreamWorks Animation”
  • and previews.

The Blu-ray/DVD Combo and Blu-ray/DVD/Blu-ray 3D Combo add these extras:

  • “Smoove Move’s Music Maker” music videos
  • “Meet Tito” deleted scene with introduction by director David Soren
  • “The Race” storyboard sequence to film comparison, with intro by Soren
  • “Shell Creator” that allows viewers to create their own shell from selectable parts
