Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced that the Oliver & Company 20th Anniversary DVD will be released on February 3, 2009. Based on the Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist, Oliver & Company follows a young stray kitten named Oliver (Joey Lawrence) who falls in with the street-smart mutt Dodger (Billy Joel) for a life of crime, but gets rescued by a rich girl named Jenny.

The movie will come with a behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of the movie, as well as the classic Disney short “Lend a Paw,” a look back at other animal characters in Disney films, and more. Suggested retail price for the DVD is $29.99.
