Bolt hits Disney's Blu-ray 3D and DVD Combo Pack on November 8th

Did you like Bolt in 2D? Well, how about in 3D! A simple enough switch, but it brings you just one dimension closer to actually having Bolt running around your living room. That’s the hype, anyway, as Disney brings the CG animated comedy off the big screen and into your home via Disney Blu-ray 3D. The deluxe Combo Pack hits stores on November 8th, where the biggest dog star in Hollywood is separated from his beloved owner, Penny. Will his super powers, real or fake, reunite the pair?

So long, Snow White; Disney too Tangled in fairy tales

So long, Snow White; Disney too Tangled in fairy tales

In roughly two weeks, Disney will bring Tangled home to Blu-ray and DVD. As the 50th animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, Tangled is a retelling of the classic Grimm Brothers fairy tale Rapunzel. Though it generated over $500 million, it’s lofty $260 million budget makes it the second most expensive film of all time – perhaps enough so to have Disney avoid fairy tales, all together. Disney Animation heads Ed Catmull and John Lasseter have already squashed two films in development, “The Snow Queen” and “Jack and the Beanstalk.” Could the days of Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, and Jasmine be over in favor of the new wave of Toy Story, Cars, Bolt, and UP? Would you want it that way?

Tron: Legacy, Tangled, Beauty and the Beast, and the Lion King on Disney's Blu-ray 3D

Big things are happening in Disneyland for 2011. Two of Mickey Mouse’s most popular films, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King are getting the Blu-ray and 3D treatment, completely remade for newer home video systems. In addition, two of the newest animated (and quasi-animated) adventures will be getting the same options with Tangled and Tron: Legacy. Apparently, we’re on a direct path to a world that is nothing but 3D – movies, video games, bubble gum… everything! In fact, even as I’m typing this and looking around the ToonBarn Studios, everything here is beginning to look 3D, as well… Anyway, check out the early press release to the goings-on at Disney!
