As we previously announced, you can bring home the ‘#1 animated film of the year,’ Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 on Disney Blu-ray and DVD on November 2, 2010. This is confirmed by Amazon.com which now lists the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy (not displayed here), Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and DVD editions available for pre-order. Each of the Blu-ray sets consists of two Blu-ray discs.
StarGreetz, Inc., a company specializing in personalized phone messages from celebrities (fictional and not), launched their iPhone App today, aptly titled StarGreetz.
As of the time of this writing, NFL Philadelphia Eagles player Brandon Graham stands alone as the only actual human lending his voice to the message service, the rest of the contributors are some of the most popular Disney characters of all time. Disney/Pixar characters such as Sheriff Woody and Doc Hudson and Nightmare Before Christmas’ Jack Skellington join classic Disney favorites such as Cinderella, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Donald Duck and even Minnie Mouse (with more on the way).
According to a photo of an in-store retail advertisement posted on The Digital Bits, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will be releasing Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 on Disney Blu-ray and DVD on November 2. Nothing has been officially confirmed, but it’s hard to debate with a photo (at least one that hasn’t been modified). This would place the film one week ahead of the rumored release date for Finding Nemo of November 9.
Walt Disney Studios made some announcements earlier today regarding its upcoming slate. Fearing sparkling vampires, Mike Wazowski and Sulley will be making their triumphant return to the silver scream in Monsters Inc. 2 a whopping two weeks earlier now on November 2, 2012.
Despite the tremendous buzz and many supporters, it appears that the already-rescheduled Beauty and the Beast 3D may not make it to theaters in the United States after-all as it has been completely removed from the upcoming release slate. Originally expected to be released in 2010 and then in 2011, the special edition of the film is slated for a limited release overseas later this year.
On the heels of the success and industry recognition in the U.S. for its innovative format with the recently launched “Toy Story 3” app as well as with its “Toy Story,” “Toy Story 2,” and “The Princess and the Frog” read-along apps, Disney Publishing Worldwide has created its first ever international versions of the “Toy Story” read-along app for iPad.
Launching on July 20th in France, Germany, Italy and Spain, the “Toy Story” apps will each feature songs and movie clips in French, German, Italian and Spanish. The app will have special promotional pricing for a limited time at €2.99 through August 31st; pricing will then shift to €6.99. The Disney-Pixar feature film Toy Story 3 will launch in Europe throughout late July.
Although the daily updates posted here at Stitch Kingdom of new items available at DisneyStore.com along with special deals posted daily via our @SK_TDSAlerts twitter account is usually enough, I felt there were a couple of new items and sales today that deserved their own special mention in case they got understandably overlooked with the dozens of other deals announced today.
Described as mini-beanies, these plushes feature many of the new characters introduced in Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3. Included in the collection are Dolly, Mr. Pricklepants, Twitch, Peas-in-a-Pod, Buttercup the unicorn, Trixie and Sparks who’s even articulated. They retail for $8.50 each or can be purchased for $14 for any combination of two of them.
Here’s look at some of the Disney-related books, movies and audio CDs being released this week. Please note that this list is automatically generated and information is not guaranteed by this site.

MINDstyle has announced that they will launch the Tin Toy vinyl art toy collectible (ATC) at San Diego Comic-con later this month.
Limited to 500 pieces worldwide, the piece is inspired by the title character in the Pixar Animation Studios Short Tin Toy as created by John Lasseter and is often cited as the inspiration behind Pixar’s first feature-length film, Toy Story.
What happens when more than 30 Disney and Pixar artists are asked to put their spin on the adorable little green men from the Toy Story trilogy? That’s what MINDstyle asked and what they got was the ‘Alien Invasion: When Aliens Meet Artists’ sculpture exhibition that recently opened in Hong Kong.
Using a basic mold of a Toy Story Alien, each artist put their spin on the film icon and MINDstyle has begun sharing just a few of them for those of us unable to attend the exhibition in person. Included are artists Anthony Whitfield, Ben Butcher, Bacon Tan, Brian Godlewski, Ben Su, Charlie Price, Chris Meeker, Dennis Cannon, Elaine Chang, Elena Eghtesady, Hyun Ju Park and Pat Au.
Vinylmation has officially confirmed what we first told you yesterday on Twitter, that select Disney Store locations (including the new Imagination Park store in Montebello, CA) will begin carrying vinylmation figures which included the previously unreleased Toy Story (including many figures from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3) and Have a Laugh series pictured to the left.
We also announced that not only will stores be carrying vinylmation, they will also have their own exclusives.
For those wondering when these series will become available at the Parks, we were told by a reader who inquired at D-Street at Walt Disney World that they should start appearing within the week.
