Disney/Pixar’s ‘Toy Story 3′ Comes Out to Play on Blu-ray and DVD on November 2

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.

Disney Shuffles ‘Monsters,’ Kills the ‘Beast’ and Saves the Date for ‘Prom’

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.

Disney On Ice Presents Disney/Pixar’s ‘Toy Story 3′ on Ice Using State-of-the-Art Projection

Disney on Ice presents Disney/Pixar's 'Toy Story 3'Toy Story 3, the record-breaking #1 movie in the world, is so hot it’s cool as everyone’s favorite toys take to the ice in Disney On Ice presents Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3! An award-winning creative team and a cast of world-class skaters are bringing Woody, the pull-string cowboy; space ranger Buzz Lightyear; Jessie, the yodeling cowgirl; and the rest of the gang to fans and families around the country in this brand-new live ice spectacular produced by Feld Entertainment. This fast-paced and witty tale of friendship launches a 2-year, 75-city North American tour on September 3rd in Lakeland, FL.

To enhance this live experience, the production will feature state-of-the-art projection design, allowing adults and children alike to virtually shrink down as Andy’s room is transformed from human to toy-sized. Families are whisked away, reliving iconic moments from Toy Story and Toy Story 2 before they embark on the brand-new adventure of Toy Story 3. This innovative 3D technology, a first for any Disney On Ice show, blends four separate images into one massive 3D projection using the entire ice surface to create oversized effects and scenic elements, altering the audience’s perception of scale. Memorable scenes take on a new life as a pinball machine of monumental proportion is created at Pizza Planet, with the massive pinball table projected onto the ice and the score board on the stage behind it. This perspective, among many others throughout the show, reinforces the audience’s experience as a toy-sized spectator.

“An award-winning team of artists, designers and technicians are redefining the theatre of ice with a show that challenges the audience’s perception of scale,” says Producer Nicole Feld. “Disney On Ice presents Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 is Feld Entertainment’s most innovative show ever.”
