Lately, any news coming from the world of 3D seems to be negative. However, Disney is providing a little something to get excited about, amid the bleak news that’s dogged the technology through the summer of 2011.
The media giant recently announced plans to release four new Blu-ray 3D sets on November 8, 2011. The releases will bring 3D versions of “Bolt,” “Meet the Robinsons,” “Chicken Little” and “G-Force” into the home video market.
Disney will package all four titles as Disney Blu-ray Combo Packs with 3D and 2D Blu-ray discs bundled with DVD and/or mobile download versions of the movies. Disney says the release of these videos meets the demands of a diverse market that consumes media in a variety of ways.
“In early January, Disney announced an aggressive plan to bring a wide variety of 3D content to consumers’ in-home experience,” says Lori MacPherson, executive vice president, global product management, The Walt Disney Studios. “These latest Disney Blu-ray 3D releases all deliver the most superior in-home 3D viewing capabilities and by offering the films in combo Packs, we are continuing to provide families with exceptional value, quality and versatility in a single purchase.”
The four movies join a growing list of Disney titles that are available in 3D in the home video market. Some of the titles that are new for 2011 include “Tangled,” “Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland” and “TRON: Legacy.”
