In support of today’s official announcement regarding the Blu-ray and Digital releases of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has also provided us with two ultra high resolution stills featuring Kylo Ren taking on Rey in their epic battle as well as Rey, BB-8 and Finn aboard the Millennium Falcon. The new stills have been added to the beginning of our already immense gallery of high resolution stills.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens shattered box office records upon its debut to become the cinematic event of a generation with over $926 million domestic and $2 billion worldwide. Confirming an earlier report by Stitch Kingdom, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert A. Iger at The Walt Disney Company’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders today announced the epic movie will be available to own early on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on April 1, and coming home on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on April 5.
The Walt Disney Company announced plans today to build two additional cruise ships, each of them showcasing the immersive family entertainment, enchanting storytelling and unparalleled service that only Disney can deliver.
The company has entered into a memorandum of agreement with the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany. The schedule calls for the new ships to be completed in 2021 and 2023.
Each new ship will be approximately 135,000 gross tons – slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy – and each is currently planned to include about 1,250 guest staterooms. While design plans, ship names and itineraries are still in development, the Walt Disney Imagineering team is already dreaming up exciting new ways to create the world’s most magical oceangoing adventures.
Ahead of any impending official announcement, Walt Disney Home Entertainment has solidly confirmed an April 5, 2016 release date for the Blu-ray edition of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The news initially came to our attention via Disney Store who has updated their listing to include the new date, although they do not list any bonus features. In our experience, when Disney Store lists an ‘expected by’ date, it’s pretty solid as far as release dates.
In honor of today’s earlier release of the first trailer for Finding Dory (June 17, 2016), Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with an ultra high resolution still from the film featuring Dory encountering her old friend, Destiny, for the first time all over again. Voiced by Kaitlin Olson, Destiny is a whale shark — so does that make her a whale or a shark? There’s no way science could know for sure. Destiny is just one of Dory’s many new friends in the film such as Hank, Bailey, Little Dory, Gerald and more.
