Ahead of any official announcement, Disney Store has begun taking pre-orders for a DVD format of the Frozen: Sing-Along edition that enjoyed a theatrical run earlier this year. According to Disney Store, the DVD will be available to own on November 18, 2014.
According to the DVD’s description on the item page, it will include the full theatrical sing-along cut as well as a digital copy of the film. Also promised is an unspecified, ‘never-before-seen’ bonus.
Based on prior experiences with Disney Store, the lack of a Blu-ray version on the site does not preclude one from being available through other retailers as Disney Store has been slow to adopt the Blu-ray format.
As we first reported on Twitter last week, ahead of any official announcement, Amazon has begun taking pre-orders for the Blu-ray edition of ‘Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas‘ with a release date of November 4, 2014. A few days later, Walmart also began listing the title but as a 3-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo bundle of both ‘Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas’ as well as ‘Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas,’ along with the packaging seen here. It is likely that the Amazon listing is for both titles as well but it has not been updated appropriately.

Given that the tree-like lead in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy stays true to character and speaks only three words in a specific sequence — i.e., ‘I am Groot,’ — it would probably be fascinating enough to watch and listen to actor Vin Diesel record the lines with various inflections. That just wasn’t enough for Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios, however, who have shared with us this video of Diesel recording the line, not in English, but in Brazilian Portugese, Latin American Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Russian and French.
