Full slate of Blu-ray 3D movies includes blockbusters like Tangled, The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast
LAS VEGAS -- Just as The Walt Disney Studios has been pushing 3D movies at the theaters, including the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the studio is promoting 3D at home at CES 2011. Continuing its leadership in the advancement of 3D entertainment and marking the most significant title commitment to the growing Blu-ray 3D market, The Walt Disney Studios is bringing at least 15 of its films for in-home viewing on Blu-ray 3D in 2011. Although TRON: Legacy is still performing well in theaters, the Jeff Bridges action movie will be coming home in 3D later this year. Another strong theatrical contender, the 3D movie Tangled, will also be coming home on Blu-ray 3D this year.
Among the stellar list of films to debut on 3D include beloved and celebrated animated classics The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, Bolt, Meet the Robinsons, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, G-Force, and Chicken Little. These titles will join Walt Disney Studios’ recent 2010 Blu-ray 3D releases Alice in Wonderland, Disney’s A Christmas Carol and Step Up 3D, bringing Disney’s list of available Blu-ray 3D titles for the home to nearly 20 in all. Every package will come with both the Blu-ray 3D and 2D Blu-ray version of the film.
“As our contemporary library of 3D content continues to grow, and the original artists and filmmakers meticulously ‘dimensionalize’ their work for release on the Blu-ray 3D format, we will be offering movie-lovers the most incredible in-home entertainment experience they will ever have,” noted Lori MacPherson, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. “In addition to offering new releases day-and-date in 3D and further cementing our leadership in the marketplace, we’re thrilled that consumers will have the exclusive Blu-ray 3D experience of two of the most celebrated Disney animated features, The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, in their homes.”
In addition to the film being in 3D, each disc will include thematically linked 3D menus, 3D previews of coming-attractions trailers and an introduction to the eye-popping world of Disney Blu-ray 3D featuring beloved characters Timon and Pumbaa from The Lion King.
