Kida fans rejoice! Walt Disney Studios has called in the plumber and the clog has been cleared, resulting in a deluge of animated classics all being released for the first time on Disney blu-ray on March 12, 2013. While not all of have been officially confirmed to us by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, now is the time to start saving those pennies to complete your home video collection.
Continuing recent trends in providing the original motion picture in blu-ray format along with the direct-to-video sequels, first up on the list is the Brother Bear/Brother Bear 2 combo (available for pre-order) as well as Atlantis: The Lost Empire/Atlantis:Milo’s Return and The Hunchback of Notre Dame/The Hunchback of Notre Dame II, all three of which have been directly confirmed to us by WDSHE.
In addition, Amazon.com has also recently began listing Mulan/Mulan II for the March 12 release date (another listing for it has the artwork but no pre-order), essentially confirming that release. The Hunchback of Notre Dame/The Hunchback of Notre Dame II is also listed for pre-order on Amazon, with another listing showing the artwork.
At this point in time, all information provided to us is pointing at ‘classic DVD’ bonus features with nothing new added for the blu-ray releases.
Also being released on March 12, 2013 is Who Framed Roger Rabbit 25th Anniversary Edition as we have previously reported.
