Magic is everywhere in Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice-the fun family adventure from the creators of National Treasure.

Experience more extraordinary thrills, heart-stopping action and spectacular special effects than you can imagine as these unlikely partners show us that the real world is far more magical than we ever knew!
Very early this year, we reported on a Hollywood Reporter blurb that didn’t seem to catch the eye of most — Disney planned on releasing three Blu-ray 3D titles this year: A Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland and Toy Story 3.
Shortly thereafter it was widely rumored but never substantiated that Disney was considering making Alice in Wonderland a package deal with Sony products. However Sony recently announced and Variety confirms that it will be offering not just Alice in Wonderland as an exclusive bundle with its 3D home theater equipment this fall, but that Disney’s Bolt will also be available exclusively in Blu-ray 3D with Sony. The titles will come alongside purchases of Sony Bravia 3D TVs and — without the assistance of eBay — consumers will be forced to choose between the two. Whether the 3D titles will become available for general purchase in the future is up in the air.

The very special outdoor ‘picnic-in-the-park’ premiere of Disney’s Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue was screened for more than 1,000 families in the local Los Angeles area this past weekend. The event featured a dozen of L.A.’s most popular food trucks, including ‘Top Chef’ alum Brian Hill’s gourmet food truck, along with a bevy of activity stations for the kids – including face painting, Tink tattoos, coloring stations and Radio Disney, who emceed the event. All fairy attendees received Tinker Bell blankets, Tinker Bell glow sticks, Fairy wings and enjoyed many Fairy activities.

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has just shared sneak peeks at just three of the bonus features you’ll find on the Beauty and the Beast: Diamond Edition on Disney Blu-ray/DVD when it’s released on October 5.
In the introduction for the picture-in-picture edition, producer Don Hahn sets up the bonus feature by recalling the first time the film had been screened for the public, far from its completion, at the New York Film Festival. With the picture-in-picture feature, you’ll watch both the original theatrical release and the screened edition simultaneously.
Amazon.com has now listed a ten disc set for the Toy Story 3 trilogy to be released on November 2, the same day the film is being released on its own. Don’t let the ten disc description fool you, however, it appears to just simply refer to the 3 disc Toy Story (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy), 3 disc Toy Story 2 (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy) and 4 disc Toy Story 3 (2 Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy).
