It may have been given a Dolby Digital 5.1 remix, but even so, you shouldn't expect a true surround sound experience. The rears are only used for ambience (such as the winds caused by the twister as it approaches), but the front soundspace is particularly strong. Dialogue is clear and precise. When dealing with the Munchkins' high notes during It Really Was No Miracle the mix never sounds strained. The music is sweeping and bold with superb presentation. Not the liveliest 5.1 mix you'll find, but compared to earlier releases it's nothing short of miraculous.
