UPDATED: ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ Lands on Blu-ray June 11; Costume Design Art (Hi-Res)

'Oz the Great and Powerful' on Blu-rayAccording to a listing on DisneyStore.com, Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful will be available to own on 3D Blu-ray beginning June 11, 2013. Although the listing itself is for the 2D edition, Amazon.com is accepting pre-orders for the 3D Blu-ray/digital copy edition as well as the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.

Disney’s fantastic adventure Oz The Great and Powerful is the story of Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician of dubious ethics. When Diggs is hurled away to the vibrant land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot — until he meets three witches (Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams), who aren’t convinced he’s the great wizard everyone’s expecting.

‘Lilo & Stitch’ Blu-ray Release to Join ‘Emperor’s New Groove,’ ‘Atlantis’ on June 11

'Lilo & Stitch' on Blu-rayWhen it comes to releasing animated classics from Walt Disney Animation Studios, there appears to be little to no rhyme or reason for the release order and timing — at times it’s just downright mayhem. When Blu-ray releases seem to conveniently coincide with a release date anniversary milestone, such as Mulan’s 15th, and touted as such, it often makes consumers wonder why some films seem to have been forgotten.

Enter Lilo & Stitch which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2012. Unfortunately the year came and went without any fanfare save for a respectable mention at D23′s national ‘Fanniversary’ events. In 2013, however, 11 years after the film’s release, the tides are apparently about to turn.

‘The Emperor’s New Groove,’ ‘Atlantis’ on Blu-ray in June

'The Emperor's New Groove' on Blu-rayAdmittedly we’ve sounded the alarm for the dual movie pack of Atlantis: The Lost Empire/Atlantis: Milo’s Return before, but this time we’re almost certain it’s going to happen. Ahead of any official announcement (which is expected later today if the pattern holds), Amazon.com has begun accepting pre-orders for the movie/sequel pair on Blu-ray for a release date of June 11, 2013. This was not the case when we believed it to be released alongside of Mulan, Brother Bear and Hunchback of Notre Dame and their respective sequels earlier this year.
