I didn’t get the chance to see Gnomeo & Juliet, so I was very happy to get the announcement from Disney that it is being released on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D May 24th! I admit I was a slight bit green with envy at the mommy bloggers who got to go to LA for the Red Carpet Carpet Premiere of Gnomeo & Juliet and meet Sir Elton John! What an amazing once in a life time opportunity!
