‘The Emperor’s New Groove,’ ‘Atlantis’ on Blu-ray in June
Admittedly we’ve sounded the alarm for the dual movie pack of Atlantis: The Lost Empire/Atlantis: Milo’s Return before, but this time we’re almost certain it’s going to happen. Ahead of any official announcement (which is expected later today if the pattern holds), Amazon.com has begun accepting pre-orders for the movie/sequel pair on Blu-ray for a release date of June 11, 2013. This was not the case when we believed it to be released alongside of Mulan, Brother Bear and Hunchback of Notre Dame and their respective sequels earlier this year.
In addition, Amazon.com is also listing the Blu-ray adaptation of The Emperor’s New Groove on June 11, 2013, but we do know in fact that Disney plans on releasing this alongside its own direct-to-video sequel, Kronk’s New Groove, as Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment released a few clips yesterday in support of the pair (but no trailer and no official date).
As usual, we will provide more information as it becomes available to us.
UPDATE: Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has now officially confirmed the release of all three movies (and their respective sequels) to be released on Blu-ray on June 11. No details for bonus features have been supplied for any of the releases.
