The new and improved Samsung 3D Starter Kit will no longer feature Monsters vs. Aliens. It’s getting a slew of updated 3D Blu-ray titles, including How to Train Your Dragon.

Like Monsters, Dragons is a DreamWorks Animation title, and will be exclusive to Samsung shoppers—at least for a little while.

Aside from How to Train Your Dragon, Samsung’s 3D Starter Kit will come with IMAX 3D Blu-rays Galapagos and Into the Deep 3D, as well as Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs. It also has two pairs of 3D glasses. There’s no MSRP for the kit, but for a limited time, the manufacturer is offering it as a freebie for consumers buying a Samsung 3D TV and a Samsung 3D Blu-ray player.

This is a big deal, considering Dragon is one of the biggest films of the year—as well as one of the biggest 3D films.

Expect Samsung’s new 3D Starter Kit to be available this fall. Samsung says they will also snag all four Shrek titles as an exclusive when the series is released on 3D Blu-ray sometime in Q4 2010.
